Lighting Up Smart Cities with Smart Street Lights

Making a city’s future brighter with rugged and smart
AIoT technology on the edge

Innodisk, with subsidiary Aetina, delivered a rugged AIoT solution that addressed the city’s need for smart infrastructure and AI on the edge.

Introduction

A mayor wanted to implement a smart street lighting system to increase energy efficiency and decrease carbon emissions in the city. The street lights would also provide the backbone infrastructure for other smart city services and applications for improving public safety, traffic management, and environmental monitoring.

Result

Wide-temperature storage and DRAM with conformal coating provided protection against the harsh conditions the smart lights face year-round. Aetina’s AI platform provided the data analytics necessary to interpret the surrounding traffic situation, with Innodisk’s iCAP monitoring platform making maintenance and monitoring completely seamless.
