As well as reduced running and maintenance costs, wireless connectivity will allow the lamposts to act as smart city sensors.
We are working with our partners in Edinburgh to deliver an efficient and smart street lighting control system, one that will be responsive to citizens’ needs for decades to come.Will Gibson, Founder and Chief Commercial Officer, Telensa
Cambridge-based smart city applications firm Telensa announced that it had been selected by CGI, the company appointed by City of Edinburgh Council to undertake its digital transformation, for an LED replacement contract run by infrastructure services supplier Amey.
Telensa’s ‘PLANet’ is a wireless central management system (CMS) that enables centralised remote control of the city’s lighting. It consists of wireless nodes connecting individual lights, dedicated wireless connectivity, and a central management application. The deployment is underway and is expected to complete by the end of 2020.
