The city of Yverdon-Les-Bains in Switzerland has been exploring various intelligent lighting solutions over the last years. The results never satisfied the city responsibles because of inadequate detection or because of insufficient openness of the solution. Smartnodes addresses all the needs: highly accurate detection technology in an open architecture. They decided to equip one of their streets with 12 smart nodes.
The city of Helmond has got C0² reduction and preventive measures to reduce global warming as main priorities on its agenda. Therefore they looked for the most performing technology to achieve those goals. After careful deliberation, they chose Smartnodes as the most appropriate technology in this residential area.
Smartnodes technology offers a lot of additional data and solutions towards its customers. Mobility data and presence detection are some of them. In this case we use the detection of cyclists and/or pedestrians to light up a LED panel whenever they are approaching the zebra crossing. In that manner, car drivers are informed of the possible danger.
This first installation on SmartNodes site has been installed at Val Benoit in Liège.
It will allow visitors to discover SmartNodes technology and ask a variety of practical questions. It is also a tool that allows SmartNodes to test its evolutionary technology.
The mayor of Sint-Truiden, Veerle Heeren has the ambition to turn its city into the most innovative one in Flanders. This project is the first of many with a great impact on the well-being of its citizens and the ecological footprint of its public infrastructure.
