Research Idea Scope

Design, development and testing of an adaptive highway lighting system in response to maximum real time roadway safety condition and minimum energy consumption of the street ligting system. The project will involve development of dynamic highway lighting requirements and design and implementation of hardware and software for the dynamic control system.

Urgency and Payoff

1- Reduce the power consumption of highway/street lighting; 2- Improve highway safety by enhancing highway lighting in response to changes in traffic/roadway conditions
