Lighting’s role in Smart Cities: Making it happen
Speakers: Brian Lawrence of Holophane
Lighting has the potential to be the powered communication backbone for the smart city and with the right sensors, opens up opportunities for a host of data-based services. The widespread deployment of the technologies present a variety of challenges specifically how they will be deployed, how they will be used and how will they evolve. Presented by Bryan Lawrence of Holophane.
Case study: Britain’s smartest car park
How the lighting at this car park can not only respond dynamically to the presence of both cars and people, but also provide valuable insights to the facility’s operators.
Best practice: Smart lighting in universities
How can connected lighting on campuses help universities achieve their goals in terms of energy, student safety, security, asset management, access control and space utilisation? Our speaker looks at some learnings from real-world examples.
Why tuneable white colour is right for outdoor applications
With LEDs, it’s now easy and cost-effective to tune the colour temperatures of white LEDs in outdoor installations. For instance, in White Bear Lake, Minnesota, the lights are varied from a warm 2700K to a cool 5500k, giving better visibility for a safer environment in busy times but warmer when less busy.
Snow joke – Street lights’ role in weather response
Speakers: Professor Lee Chapman of the University of Birmingham
Sensors in public lighting can assist local authorities in monitoring and reacting to weather-related issues such as flooding, air pollution and snow. In one application in Hampshire, the street lights tell the local council which frozen roads need gritting.

Why smart parking will be the killer app for smart cities
A number of cities are currently trialling internet-connected street lights which find motorists a parking place. These pilot deployments mostly use video cameras to monitor the spaces. These cameras generate data which is interpreted by cloud software to assess if the space is available. Is this the killer app that will drive smart cities?
Street lighting: From the front line
We explore one of the most advanced trials of intelligent streetlights in the UK where luminaires have become a single multi-purpose product that will serve both as a streetlight and an Internet of Things (IoT) device.It is hoped that the technology will allow the local authority to improve traffic management, record and manage roadside pollution levels and aid the swift development of autonomous vehicles by providing much more accurate triangulation.
Panel Discussion – How data can transforms cities and communities
Actionable insights from lighting-mounted sensors can help cities and communities work better. But what are the challenges and how can we overcome them? Our panel of lighting experts, engineers, suppliers and urbanists discuss the issues.
Connected lighting’s role in security and surveillance
An important early application of connected lighting will be for security and surveillance and involve technologies such as face recognition and movement monitoring. Our speaker outlines how lighting will integrate with this world, and the benefits and challenges it will bring.
Smart lighting on the rail network
What role can connected lighting play on the rail network to help network operators and TOCs to improve passenger experience in terms of comfort, safety and security? Are the standards in conflict with this opportunity?
