AGD targets efficiency in lighting sector

First publishedIntertraffic

Day 3
AGD is demonstrating how it is applying its intelligent radar detection expertise to the lighting sector to help authorities and lighting manufacturers achieve significant cost and energy efficiency savings.

It can provide dynamic street lighting control from real time traffic data, ensuring lighting levels are adjusted safely depending on traffic density. When the radars detect high volumes of traffic, streetlights are deployed on full brightness but can then be programmed to dim to established safe levels by the local management system in line with measured traffic flows.

AGD says the radar can be installed quickly and easily to existing street lighting infrastructure. Radars already in deployment can serve a dual purpose – both as a means of vehicle, cycle or pedestrian detection and traffic flow monitoring as well as lighting control which provides a considerable cost saving.

It’s a proven system. For instance, AGD’s ‘307’ radar is deployed internationally by a number of major lighting manufacturers. Using a simple relay output per detect and operating in the K-band at 24GHz, it is helping road authorities to control lighting levels safely in response to the detection of traffic. Systems can link directly to Digital Addressable Lighting Interface (DALI) or similar interfaces to delegate light dimming decisions to radars at street level or send traffic volume data remotely via wireless communications to local lighting control centres.
