When there are large volumes of traffic on the road networks, the lighting needs to be adapted based on the number of vehicles. Local authorities need to maximise their energy savings whilst maintaining road user safety. They need to be able to provide a comfortable environment and safety for all road users, through street lighting management tools
1/ COLLECTING, DE-IDENTIFYING AND SECURING DATA
The Bluevia sensor reports Bluetooth fingerprints (MAC addresses) of vehicles. The information collected is systematically de-identified (CNIL) and sent via GSM or Ethernet network to the LX Connect platform.
2/ PREPARATION OF JOURNEY TIMES AND TRANSFORMATION INTO TRAFFIC DENSITY LEVELS
Journey time calculations are made after capturing timestamped addresses on the LX Connect platform. This transforms the journey time into three levels of traffic density: low, moderate and high.
3/ CONTROL OF LIGHT POINTS ACCORDING TO ACTUAL TRAFFIC CONDITIONS
Tegis Lighting Plus adapts to information from the LX Connect platform and controls the light points. The information is updated every 10 minutes.
