STORY

Project Overview

The huge amount of electrical power of many countries is consumed in lighting the streets. However, vehicles pass with very low rate in specific periods of time and parts of the streets are not occupied by vehicles over time.There should be a system that automatically Dims/ off the light for the parts of the streets having no vehicles and turns on the light for these parts once there are some vehicles that are going to come.

Project Steps

  • Prototype model using Ardunio micro-controller

  • Real practical module for implementation of idea

Where I Need the Most Help

  • Most efficient sensor for detecting Vehicle across road
  • Replacement of Ardunio microcontroller with efficient electronics
  • How to install (plug) module in LED streetlight ?
  • Your valuable suggestions

!

Why I’m Passionate About This Project

Street lighting is an important community service, but it can consume as much as 40 percent of a city’s energy budget. This energy consumption can be easily reduced by up to 50% through intelligent ON/OFF switching.
