Telematics Wireless Chosen to Provide Street Lighting Management Solution
Israel – August 23rd, 2016 - Telematics Wireless (Telematics), a leader in smart city control applications, has announced that its smart city technology has been selected to be implemented for a control and monitoring solution for 132,500 street lights in the City of Montreal, Canada. Telematics’ solution will be provided as part of a C$28 million contract awarded to Énergère for the supply and installation of an intelligent street lighting management solution. Telematics’ solution will include its 7-pin external Lighting Control Units (LCUs) as well as internal LCUs that will control the operation of the lighting fixtures. Énergère intends to deploy multiple smart city networks which will work together to provide comprehensive city-wide coverage.
Énergère has chosen Telematics’ T-Light Pro™ System for its highly robust wireless mesh multi-hop network that utilizes self-healing and cognitive radio algorithms. Telematics’ solution for smart city applications enables reliable and secure two-way communications between lighting nodes and the Central Management Software (CMS) via a wireless network that uses a small number of gateways. This energy-saving solution controls lighting levels and monitors the power and energy usage of lightings. Street light outages are detected in real time, thus reducing maintenance costs and enhancing public safety.
In addition to monitoring and controlling the street lights, the T-Light communications platform will enable the City of Montreal to implement a vast array of smart city solutions. These solutions include the integration of snow sensors which can notify the public works when the streets need to be cleared of snow; the ability to blink the street lights on specific streets to warn citizens to move their cars for the snow plows; and the use of sensors on water meters to provide meter readings, detect leakage or monitor sewage lines for overflow.
“What makes this project unique, is that it successfully combines the solutions of various smart city technologies and companies”, said Eddy Kafry, CEO of Telematics Wireless. “Our reputation as a leader in providing smart city and wireless communications solutions has led us to be selected for this large-scale project for the City of Montreal.”
