Smart lighting adds intelligence and control to street lights to help reduce the largest energy expense of a typical city. Smart lighting provides remote lighting control that can better adjust the amount of time the lights are turned on to minimize energy costs without sacrificing public safety. Smart lighting can also significantly reduce street light maintenance costs and simplifies asset management. Smart street lights also can deliver the networking and power for other smart city applications. For example, in Los Angeles microphones are being integrated into streetlights at busy street intersections to pick up noises and instantly discern events such as car crashes.

Smart Lighting

NETOP sensors embedded in each street light have the ability to control light functions. LPWAN Technology in the sensor connects the street light to a LPWAN-based gateway or base station. The gateway or base station aggregates data from all nearby street lights. Sensors for other smart city applications connect to the same gateway. The gateway or base station sends information to the Cloud where the data is analyzed by an application server and controls lighting. Server sends maintenance alerts for burnt out bulbs and other issues

NETOP based sensors combined with credit-card enabled parking meters provide municipalities a total solution for expanding the payer base of a parking system. With a mobile app, enforcement officers are able to immediately see from anywhere which parking spaces are currently occupied and unpaid.

These benefits also extend into the workforce since with LPWAN Technology, parking attendants to not need to drive or walk specific routes. They can see where they are needed via an application that connects back to the Cloud. This means fewer enforcement officers are required to maintain existing fine revenues, and better utilization of the workforce could lead to an increase in total overall revenues.

Smart Parking

While traditional urban monitoring systems have been prohibitively expensive for medium and small sized municipalities, NETOP LPWAN Technology provides an affordable solution that can increase municipal revenues and improve city services. City governments are always in search of better ways to optimize spending and increase revenue. With LPWAN Technology, municipalities are able to both lower the overall cost of infrastructure while advancing long-term technological goals.

By implementing sensors embedded with LPWAN Technology into waste bins and using an intelligent low-power, wide area network based on the respective LPWAN protocol, cities can significantly reduce their operational costs by streamlining their waste collection routes and deploying trash bins only where they are necessary.

Waste Management

NETOP sensors embedded with LPWAN Technology are placed on waste bins. Sensors periodically report the fill rate of the waste bins. Gateway sends information to the network where the data is analyzed by an application server. Application server creates an optimized trash route indicating which waste bins need to be emptied. The optimized route is sent to drivers via computer or mobile, so that they only empty full waste bins.
