      KEYNOTE: How New York cut crime by 39%

      Arena: Safer Cities
      A major randomised control study across 80 public housing developments in New York has demonstrated that lighting has cut night-time crime by 39 per cent. In partnership with the Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice, the New York City Police Department and the New York City Housing Authority, the scientific research team Crime Lab discovered that the developments that received new lighting experienced crime rates that were significantly lower than would have been the case without the new lights. The study found that increased levels of lighting led to a 7 per cent overall reduction in so-called index crimes— a subset of serious offences that includes murder, robbery and aggravated assault, as well as certain property crimes.

      The IoT’s role in making cities safer

      Arena: Safer Cities
      Connecting street lights and associated devices to the internet can lead to a sensory network which can make an enormous contribution to making our cities safer. For instance, using audio sensors and triangulation, street lights are already  identifying and locating gunshots in real time. Additionally, street lights can become a tool of the emergency services to rapidly signal the location of an incident, and provide appropriate light levels.

      Panel Discussion: Emergency lighting’s role in the IoT

      Arena: Escape Zone
      Industry experts are predicting that the lighting will soon be part of the so-called ‘Internet of Things’ where various services in buildings communicate and are controlled via an Internet-Protocol network. Emergency lighting is well placed to benefit from this trend and in theory this could make the monitoring and regular testing of the installation easier. Our panel debates the merits of IoT-connected emergency lighting.
