Cloud technology enables smart lighting for smart cities
As shown in the graph above, the smart light user interface provides operators with insights into the behaviour of the system. Raw data is processed inside the smart light application to produce aggregated information about the number of cars passing per hour, shown in blue in the above figure. Based on simple configuration parameters, the application running inside the NuvlaBoxÒ then issues commands to the Owlet system, which in turn regulates the light intensity of a pre-determined group of lighting units. The diagram shows that peaks in light follow the heaviest periods of traffic.
This is such a great example of the use of what is being referred to as edge computing, the NuvlaBoxÒ acting as an edge device. It is nice to see how technology can improve the society that we live in.
