IDEA

Plug and Play:-
here I suggest you to use a complete network to control street lights
you will have to design a plug n play module containing esp 8266(wifi) programmed to control lights according to the information provided by Arduino
A wifi module connected to Arduino will transmit the commands while that with the plug n play will receive them and operate accordingly

Muhammad Ali using Wi-Fi module is good idea for premium (expensive) Streetlight … but main objective of this project is to save energy with minimal production cost… so, I think we should use wired connection for this

power consumed by wifi module(50mA) is negligible as compared to power consumed by street lights I have suggested to use it in order to cover up plug and play thing

I said minimum production (components) cost. We have to make our first version at minimum cost.
Esp8266 itself costs about 350+ INR
Though to reduce cost we will use cheaper stand alone AVR also.

Does the system support measurement of energy consumed by the street light, thereby assessing the power parameters and the coresponding losses in transmission.
