A project to introduce an intelligent lighting control system has recently been completed in the Wujiang District of Suzhou, China. The NB-IoT platform used is designed to provide real-time operational control of the outdoor lighting network.
Thanks to the use of a low-power WAN network, this project has been included in the program for creating an eco-civilization implemented by the National Development and Reform Commission.
The functionality of the NB-IoT intelligent lighting control platform allows monitoring and dimming of individual luminaires, as well as automatically reporting malfunctions. After the introduction of the system, the energy saving indicator reached 68.4%, and the average illumination of the road increased by 30.4%.
The smart lighting project implemented in Suzhou has significantly improved the quality of road lighting, while maintaining a high level of energy efficiency.
