Description

[Philips Lighting]
Cities are turning to state-of- the-art technology to enhance livability and quality of life of citizens. The increasing integration of networked technologies enables new opportunities to utilize light to enhance public spaces through the connected digital lighting solutions which became an important factor in Intelligent Cities, especially when combined with a comprehensive urban plan to engage citizens and stakeholders alike. Connected lighting is a unique resource that enables cities to reap the benefits of cost-cutting and energy saving technology while enhancing neighborhoods that support vibrant city life and attract economic activity and tourism. And, it supports city stakeholders to meet their ambitious carbon emission targets.
