As soon as any new activity is detected by the closest street light, the light is lit and the detection is communicated wirelessly by radio to a set number of street lights. As a result, drivers, cyclists and pedestrians will experience normal illumination levels all along their route. In reality, however, there is a limited “wave” of light that follows the road user’s movement and provides safety. In this way Comlight can save lighting operators considerable amounts of energy while also providing the local population and visitors with optimal lighting safety.
No two stretches of road are the same. Consequently, the control system “Motion Sensing Street Lighting” is set up specifically for each area. This is quite simple to do using a software package that allows the user to enter the desired parameters, such as the number of street lights to be included in the light “wave”. This will depend on the distance between them, how far forward it is important to be able to see, the road layout and so on. The various settings can easily be entered from a PC and can be changed whenever necessary and from any location. The changes are sent to a GPRS-equipped street light, which then automatically transmits the update to all the lights along the stretch of road or in the site.
