Always seeking innovation, BH Technologies was studying an energy saving solution for its public lighting equipment. The company based in Grenoble (France) wanted a simple and autonomous system with high-level accuracy vehicle detection to be integrated with its public lighting control solution.
HIKOB miniaturized and smart wireless magnetometer sensors have been selected by BH Technologies to detect vehicle movements in the area where the public lighting solution is deployed. They collect vehicle detection data in real-time and communicate through the HIKOB wireless radio network with the public lighting controller which adapts the light intensity depending on the real street traffic flow. Public lighting is decreased at the lowest level when the area is empty and is boosted when the wireless sensors detect vehicle movements in the area.
