Lites Technology

The LITES project has developed a street lighting solution that provides a significant energy saving potential up to 70%. The LITES technology is an intelligent public street lighting service using solid-state LED luminaries with embedded intelligence.
The core element of the solution is the dimming of the lamp depending on the environment; a set of embedded sensors measures ambient light, temperature, current, and detect motion. Output data of sensors is then processed by the embedded intelligence allowing optimum regulation of light levels.

The embedded intelligent control of the dimming of light ensures a significant drop of the energy consumption while fully respecting the European standards of security ruling the target category of public places.
