Smart-Space cities visit model sites in Eindhoven and Rotterdam
The project partners of Smart-Space – a European project aiming to facilitate the uptake of smart lighting in small and mid-size municipalities – had the opportunity to visit smart lighting model sites in Eindhoven and Rotterdam on 26 and 27 March 2019.
Representatives of the City of Eindhoven hosted the Smart-Space project group in the Stratumseind street living lab to demonstrate how smart lighting is used in this pub street and to introduce the different sensors (noise, heat, motion) present and used on that specific street.
This was followed by a guided walk to a second model smart lighting site in Eindhoven, Strijp-S, and a demo of what can be done with smart lighting with the activation of different colours to create different atmosphere and light experiences.
Smart-Space project partners also had the opportunity to attend the City under Microscope conference in Rotterdam and visit a model site in the city the following day: a dynamic dimming pilot in the Bredenoord residential area.
Smart-Space, is a European project aiming to facilitate the uptake of smart lighting in small and mid-size municipalities.
The three-year project, funded by INTERREG North West Europe (NWE), brings together cities and innovation stakeholders (research institutes, SMEs, enterprises) to jointly develop an interoperable smart lighting platform that is adjustable to the specific needs of different municipalities. Through pilots in four cities, the project aims to demonstrate the impact of smart lighting on energy consumption and CO2 emission while enhancing public space safety and liveability.
