Smart City


How can technology help make our cities better places to live in?

Extended Light­ing — Key to the Smart City
Smart Light­ing by Selux fol­lows the prin­ci­ple that rather than being an end in itself, tech­nol­ogy is closely con­nected to life and the needs, expec­ta­tions and poten­tial of human beings. The mod­u­lar design of our prod­ucts makes them per­fect for the inte­gra­tion of smart func­tions. Our pro­found tech­ni­cal under­stand­ing enables us to work with our cus­tomers, users and tech­nol­ogy part­ners to jointly develop solu­tions that are indi­vid­u­ally tai­lored to each par­tic­u­lar sit­u­a­tion.

Through this strat­egy, Selux is making the smart city an aspi­ra­tional goal, a living space with a sus­tain­able qual­ity of life for every­one. Urban light­ing forms the log­i­cal basis for this since it already has in place a large number of instal­la­tion points with an elec­tric­ity supply. A smart lumi­naire from Selux, net­worked via the inter­net can on one hand be inte­grated into intel­li­gent con­trols that switch lights on, off or dim them as needed. On the other hand, it can pro­vide data via sen­sors: from how bright it is locally to the volume of traf­fic or the air qual­ity. And it can pro­vide infor­ma­tion to the local envi­ron­ment – via audio speak­ers, dis­plays or WiFi hotspots. The smart city thus inter­acts with its vis­i­tors and res­i­dents, it learns and col­lates knowl­edge to con­tin­u­ally adapt better to the lives that are lived there.

Impor­tant Smart City func­tions, that can be integrated in Selux lumi­naires:

Motion-con­trolled light­ing
The light­ing is con­trolled as required via motion sen­sors. Indi­vid­ual or mul­ti­ple light points change in bright­ness as people or objects move – the light tracks them.

Adap­tive light­ing
Intel­li­gent sen­sors allow the light­ing to adjust to dif­fer­ent weather con­di­tions. The dis­tri­b­u­tion of light from the lumi­naires changes accord­ing to whether the road sur­face is wet or dry.

Light man­age­ment
The lumi­naires are con­nected via an intel­li­gent com­mu­ni­ca­tion net­work. Indi­vid­ual or mul­ti­ple light points are con­trolled cen­trally, or locally via an app.

Envi­ron­men­tal data record­ing
Intel­li­gent sen­sors in the lumi­naires or on the pole mea­sure envi­ron­men­tal and weather para­me­ters in real-time.

Public infor­ma­tion sys­tems
Infor­ma­tion can be retrieved via com­po­nents such as but­tons or dis­plays inte­grated into the pole, includ­ing timeta­bles, audio clips for the blind and par­tially sighted or for use in adver­tis­ing.

Public safety module
Camera sys­tems, audio speak­ers and emer­gency call but­tons flex­i­bly inte­grated into the light pole improve safety in the urban space.

Public WiFi hotspots
Lumi­naires are equipped with WiFi com­po­nents to create public hotspots. Infor­ma­tion and ser­vices for pro­fes­sional and pri­vate use are pro­vided via broad­band inter­net.

Elec­tric vehi­cle charg­ing sta­tions
Charg­ing sta­tions installed at or in the lumi­naire pole allow elec­tric vehi­cles to be charged.

Traf­fic and park­ing space man­age­ment
Intel­li­gent sen­sors record the cur­rent traf­fic sit­u­a­tion and pro­vide real-time data for sus­tain­able trans­port opti­mi­sa­tion in cities.
