Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has partnered with Singapore-based gridComm in a first-of-its-kind deployment of a streetlight management solution in Taiwan.
The solution aims to provide real-time monitoring of streetlight infrastructure, improving energy efficiency and reducing energy consumption from streetlights across Taiwan’s Taoyuan City.
"Street lighting continues to be an increasing expense on any major city’s maintenance and electricity budgets,” said Cheng Wen-Tsan, mayor of Taoyuan City.
"Taoyuan City needed a streetlight solution that could respond in real-time to changing environmental conditions to ensure optimal street lighting conditions for our citizens and road users."
IDC has projected that spending worth US$34 billion in smart city technology will occur in 2018 with a 17 per cent growth expectation over 2018-2022 in the Asia Pacific region, including China and Japan.
