Smart Services of the LIGHTYEARS Networks

 

Engineering

 

The management network uses base radio frequencies. No wiring is necessary. A single central unit can manage several remote controls for the entire system. Due to the small size of the radio hardware components of the system, these are already integrated into the Lightyears lamps. Prior to initial installation, various custom solutions are discussed and the system comes pre-programmed accordingly. The system is very easy to use and at anytime can be reprogrammed.


Training

 

Customers are supported not only in planning but also in the installation and maintenance of equipment. In addition to the data sheets and installation instructions for all HW / SW components, we offer local support before and during installation and configuration of the system. Our customer service is always available for remote testing.


Parking Management

 

An intelligent L-RD can monitor free parking along streets and squares using innovative sensors integrated into management systems of customers urban transport. Messages about free and occupied spaces are transmitted to the main server and from there on request to the driver of a vehicle by means of data signal. This system is especially helpful when monitoring disabled parking spaces and loading and unloading zones, but also leaves open other possibilities for reservation and payment functions.


Waste management

 

An electronic device with a wireless communication module and an inertial measurement unit (IMU) can be installed in public space garbage bins to determine their current capacity level. The cost of these devices is very low and allows the City Council to receive messages as to which waste containers should be emptied. Waste collection staff no longer have to drive around to attend waste containers that are empty or part full. The garbage container "communicates" via the local network of the lighting infrastructure.


Light Sensors

 

The integration of light sensors results in an automatic adjustment of the illumination on the residual intensity of natural light. An algorithm is placed in the site location, light conditions, time of day, etc., makes individual adjustments of the desired brightness level of street lighting and automatically varies the different levels of brightness. In a street of houses with sunny and shady areas, each lamp-head will be programmed individually according to its position.


Safety & Teleassistance

 

At each lamp-head an emergency alarm can be attached. When the alarm is triggered, the position of the detector is determined by the network position. This SOS function is also available via mobile app.


Mandown

 

There are many types of motion detectors. These wireless devices can be networked with our L-RD units (indoor and outdoor areas) and send information about movement, speed, temperature limits – and can communicate abnormalities (e.g. standstill positions) automatically and in real time.


Environmental Monitoring

 

Measurements of pollution per road or district is now a simple task. Special sensors continuously transmit data of CO2 pollution, temperature values​​, humidity, air pressure, levels of ozone, radiation, etc. When limit values ​​are exceeded light signals or other alarms can be triggered automatically if desired.


Traffic Restricted Areas

 

In public and private sectors it is possible to control automatic barriers, gates, bollards or garage doors wirelessly, integrated into our network. Using special sensors it can also be detect whether a vehicle has the access rights to access a specific area.


Smart Metering

 

Utility meters (electricity, gas, water, heat) are linked via the L-RD and send data to the central "Utility Server", where they are recorded and reports of vital data are generated. The system guarantees the reliable detection, data transfer, user authentication and encryption information.


Advertising

 

At each L-RD, monitors, displays or text panels can be connected in order to send information or advertising data to individual positions in the city. Mobile devices can be integrated into this network.


Infotourist

 

Our intelligent network can determine the position of any visitor utilising an Urban Tourism App and use this information to inform them about interests of the city/region; such as historical buildings, museums, etc. With this option, this service provided by the city administration remains intact and is not marketed exclusively by Internet service providers.

 

This also allows local economy promotions and advertising mediums via  Push messages to visitors. This opens up many possibilities to local small and medium-sized enterprises and local service providers.
