      Street lighting: From the front line

      Arena: Smart Spaces Campus Booking required
      We explore one of the most advanced trials of intelligent streetlights in the UK where luminaires have become a single multi-purpose product that will serve both as a streetlight and an Internet of Things (IoT) device. It is hoped that the technology will allow the local authority to improve traffic management, record and manage roadside pollution levels and aid the swift development of autonomous vehicles by providing much more accurate triangulation.
