The Solution

The approach: » OPEN DATA PLATFORM – bringing together a growing collection of data streams from more than 60 different organizations into a central data warehouse. Silver Spring is streaming lighting, traffic, noise and air quality data to the city’s Open Data platform. Developers can use this data to build new solutions to address city challenges. » ADAPTIVE LIGHTING – while monitoring vehicle, bicycle and pedestrian traffi c, the street lights are programmed to automatically brighten and dim depending on ambient light levels as well as how many people are in a given area. » STANDARDS-BASED IPv6 NETWORK – increasing ROI with multiple applications including smart street lights and traffic control on the same network.

Data Collected
Air Quality (PMI), Energy Cost Per Unit, Routes, Traffic Congestion Levels, Traffic Light Signal
