How to transform traditional street lights into smart street lights?
With the development of society and the improvement of living standards, people's needs for urban lighting are constantly changing and upgrading. Simple lighting functions can no longer meet the needs of modern cities in many scenarios. The smart street lamp was born in response to the current situation of urban lighting in my country.

Smart light poles are the result of the big concept of smart cities. Different from traditional street lamps, smart street lamps are also called 'smart city multifunctional integrated street lamps'. Based on smart lighting, they integrate cameras, advertising screens, video surveillance, positioning alarms, new energy vehicle charging, 5G micro base stations, and real-time urban environment monitoring. A new type of information infrastructure with all functions.

From 'Lighting 1.0' to 'Smart Lighting 2.0'

Relevant data shows that lighting in my country consumes 12% of electricity, and road lighting accounts for 30% of it. It has become the city’s Power-hungry consumers. It is urgent to upgrade and transform traditional lighting to solve social problems such as lack of electricity, light pollution, and high energy consumption.

The smart street lamp can solve the high energy consumption problem of traditional street lamps, and the energy-saving efficiency is increased by nearly 90%. It can intelligently adjust the lighting brightness and time to save energy. It can also automatically report facility abnormalities and failures to management personnel, reducing inspection and maintenance costs.

From 'assisted traffic' to 'smart traffic'

As the carrier of road lighting, traditional street lights play the role of 'assisted traffic'. In view of the fact that street lights have many points and are close to road vehicles , Consider using street lights to collect and manage information such as roads and vehicles to realize the function of 'smart traffic'. Specifically, such as:

Real-time collection and transmission of traffic status information (vehicle flow, congestion level), road operation conditions (whether water is accumulated, whether there are faults, etc.) through the detector, traffic control and road condition statistics, etc.; < /p>The high-position camera can be mounted as an electronic police to identify various illegal behaviors such as speeding and parking. In addition, it can also be combined with license plate recognition to build a smart parking lot scene.

'Street lights' + 'Communications'

Street lights are widely distributed and densely distributed municipal facilities (the distance between street lights is generally not more than 3 times the height of street lights, about 20 to 30 meters), which can be used as a communication connection point The natural advantage of the company can consider using street lights as a carrier to set up information infrastructure. Specifically, it can be extended wirelessly or wiredly to provide multiple functional services, including wireless base stations, IoT IoT, edge computing, public WIFI, optical transmission, and so on.

Among them, when it comes to wireless base stations, you have to mention 5G. Compared with 4G, 5G has a higher frequency, more vacuum loss, shorter transmission distance, and weaker penetration capability. The blind spot that needs to be increased is much higher than that of 4G. Therefore, 5G networking requires the expansion and blindness of small stations in the heating point area of u200bu200bthe macro site, and the density of street lights, the mounting height, and the complete power supply meet the networking requirements of 5G micro-sites.

'Street lamp' + 'Power supply'

There is no doubt that the street lamp itself can transmit power, so it is easy to think that the street lamp can be provided with additional power supply functions, including charging piles, USB interface charging, Signal lights, etc., can also be equipped with solar panels or wind power generation equipment to achieve urban green energy.

'Street lights' + 'Safety and environmental protection'

As mentioned earlier, street lights are widely distributed, and their distribution areas are also characteristic, mostly located in densely populated places such as highways, streets, and parks. Therefore, if cameras, emergency help buttons, meteorological environment monitoring points, etc. are deployed on the pole, the remote system or cloud platform can effectively identify the dangerous factors that threaten public safety, realize one-key alarm, and provide environmental protection departments with real-time environmental big data. As a key link in comprehensive environmental services.

Nowadays, as an entry point for smart cities, smart light poles have been built in more and more cities. The advent of the 5G era has made smart street lights even more powerful. In the future, smart street lights will continue to expand more scenario-based and intelligent application modes to provide people with more detailed and more efficient public services.
