System Design Considerations When Planning a Smart Streetlight Project


This paper describes the goals and requirements to implement a network that can provide control for street light energy management. 

The target system must be flexible, reliable, and offer secure communications. This paper first examines system goals, followed by desired functionality. Next, the required controller data and overall system response times are examined. System cost is also a critical factor that must be considered. Lastly, the paper explores the various scenarios for maximizing the Return on Investment (ROI) of implementing a street light control system. Once all the system component requirements have been defined, an overall network solution is examined that meets the system needs.
