    Overview

    A Danish company Novalume engaged Euristiq for platform development services. They required two separate platforms of a complex IoT smart city lighting solution Lumintell – for city officials and lighting operators. An intelligent street lighting management software that allows controlling and monitoring an unlimited number of streetlights remotely was installed in several cities.

    • Scalable and highly performant smart city lighting connects 2M lamp units globally
    • Real-time monitoring and performance reporting reduces maintenance costs by up to 50%
    • Smart city lighting solution paired with LED streetlights allows cutting energy consumption by up to 75%
    • Light-dimming capabilities allow to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by up to 30%

    Solutions

    Smart city software solutions can become highly concurrent and heavily loaded, which can hinder the ability to scale with ease and have high performance. Our client, a Danish smart city lighting company Novalume, experienced a similar problem and approached us with a request to modernize their existing lighting system.

    Following our communication, we understood the client’s need to upgrade the system to make it ready to collect and store vast amounts of metric data from 2M city lamp units all over the world.

    Lighting management with real-time monitoring

    The smart city lighting solution allows visualizing entire street light installations and monitoring of their operations. City officials or admins can evaluate the consumption and intensity of the light emitted from the luminaire, individually or in groups. Luminaire parameters can be adjusted in real-time, without any additional costs towards increasing their lifetime.

    The system helps lower street light energy consumption by group scheduling and dimming the lighting level during off-peak traffic hours. Advanced performance reporting tools in a user-friendly dashboard provide optimized energy-saving analysis.

    Platform for optimized field maintenance

    A platform for technical staff offers a full overview of the system status to configure the network and manage daily maintenance. It automatically collects, analyzes, and visualizes diagnostic information from the street lights and synchronized this data in real-time.

    One of its main functions is communication with field maintenance crews for optimized field service and receiving hardware alerts. The maintenance and field service platform can save up to 50% of annual maintenance costs.

    Android app for field crew

    This is a specialized app for working with lighting assets in the field and it comes as a part of the platform described above. Its main purpose is to help a field crew deploy and install streetlights wirelessly. Each streetlight becomes connected to the system and the data about its energy consumption or the intensity of the light emitted becomes available in real-time.

    The app is also used for communication between system admins and the field maintenance team. The field crew receives notifications about broken luminaires in this app, service location directions, can see a prioritized personal service and maintenance task list, and start a live chat with the admin.

    Results

    Sustainable, energy-efficient, and cost-saving smart lighting management software that improves the quality of life for citizens. The system allows the city to monitor all streetlights, view system status, perform intelligent dimming, and access analytics all in one dashboard.

    Novalume’s smart city lighting solution was a highly concurrent, heavily loaded network, several parts of which were sensitive to changes in the firmware. Euristiq’s performance team of 6 engineers improved the intelligent IoT smart city lighting solution that consists of a management system and maintenance and service platform.
