enLight believes that streetlights should cease to be considered purely as a cost and that they can be modified to be a truly strategic asset - taking advantage of the mains power in the street and the height of the lamp posts. By upgrading the existing lamp to be more efficient or by augmenting recently deployed LED lanterns, each streetlight becomes a node in the mesh network that flows around buildings and does not have to pass through them. Sensors can be mounted in lanterns or on the lamp posts to count traffic and measure the air quality - providing time and location linked data cost effectively for the first time. Additional sensors can be added to monitor water levels in drains, measure local weather conditions and monitor background noise levels or listen for incidents such as car crime or traffic accidents. As the network is highly secure and bidirectional, it can also be used as a control platform for dynamically modifying systems like traffic lights based on local conditions or sending information to signs for commuters and visitors. enLight is lighting the way to Smart Urban Infrastructure.
