Public lamp posts could become key carriers of modern technologies in the city. This way, a network of sensors will be installed throughout the entire city. They will collect data related to the city operation and its environment. We start with the pilot project on Karlínské Square, which thus acquired a new, more modern lighting system. The objective is reducing electric energy consumption and, at the same time, furnishing the posts with other functionalities by the means of newly installed measuring sensors. The modernized public lighting posts may also increase safety of people at the given location.
Sensors monitor motion in their surroundings, measure temperature, CO2 pollution, meteorological parameters and noise. In the future, lamp posts could also provide data on neighbouring buildings, benches, smart waste containers, parking meters, etc. Data will be archived in a data platform and processed for further application.
The project is in its pilot phase.
