San Diego is expected to save $3.6 million annually by installing intelligent sensors for LED street lights.

last year, San Diego announced that it was building the world's largest smart city IOT platform and adopted the CityIQ solution jointly developed by General Electric Company (GE) to improve parking, traffic and public safety on urban streets

cityiq solution is a smart city digital infrastructure launched by GE and based on Intel technology, which can provide sensors (or "smart nodes") that can be installed on street lights

recently, the city promised to add another 1000 CityIQ sensors and add a lighting control utility interface to improve the efficiency of LED street lights by 20%

in a word, the large-scale digital infrastructure of the project will focus on developing the economy and improving people's livelihood, including 4200 new CityIQ sensors (3200 planned last year), which are installed on 14000 LED street lights. By carrying on the street lamp the CityIQ sensor node with Intel Atom processor, camera, microphone, Wi Fi, Bluetooth, acoustic sensor and can measure temperature, air pressure, humidity and even magnetic field, we can establish our own urbanized IOT. Part of the data collected is uploaded to GE's predix cloud through at & T's LTE network

the plan is expected to save the city $3.6 million in energy and maintenance costs each year

at present, Ge is cooperating with American data operators at & T and Intel to carry out this project. As a data operator, at & T provides highly secure and reliable online services. Intel IOT technology can provide advanced computing power, processing power and edge analysis capabilities to help extract metadata and fuse with sensors through secure cloud connections

lighting control utility for cities

cityiq system can collect real-time data and support a large number of open data APIs and smart city applications, which will help meet some of the city's challenges. Many city departments, including the economic development office, the San Diego police department and the transportation engineering and operation Department, have used CityIQ data to improve traffic flow and pedestrian safety, And the realization of new public services

for example, the increased computing power can enable street lights to help drivers optimize their travel routes, find open parking spaces, and even inform traffic law enforcement when vehicles are parked illegally

Austin Ashe, general manager of smart city at

current, said that this is only the beginning, because most of the data collected by the street lamp IOT network will be published publicly. The city allows and encourages software developers to use these data to build applications to help local residents and visitors

currently emerging applications include applications that identify the quietest walking routes (for people who want to have a conversation while walking by adopting the new process of reverberatory lead smelting); A "digital walking stick" application that uses traffic and location data to help visually impaired people cross the road; And the history of high-frequency use of pedestrian crossings; And the method of identifying interesting events in real time, and finding hot spots by tracking the way pedestrians gather or move forward

the lighting network can also connect to the city's existing shotspot, which can automatically locate the source and monitor the sound in real time. Many municipal authorities use shotspotter to improve the efficiency of law enforcement departments. The increase of intelligent street lights can increase the coverage of shotspotter from 10 square kilometers (about 4 square miles) to a wider area

street lights can use the sensor network deployed in the whole city to timely remind the police of the dangerous situation by identifying the sound of broken glass or car accidents; Through a shooting detection application, more than 90% of shooting events can be captured through accurate location information in less than a minute to help emergency personnel

Austin a, the current general manager of Ge smart city, also includes the relevant announcement of the health and Family Planning Commission. She said that the way to combine apps and CityIQ, just like what app stores do for intelligence, can save time and money for cities - promote entrepreneurship, create jobs, generate income and solve problems

it is said that Santiago now has the largest urban street lamp IOT sensor network in the world, involving the cooperation of public and private sectors such as GE, at & T and Qualcomm. The city has made continuous efforts to operate smart cities, and recently won the 2018 smart 50 award
