The smart light pole is an important source of information collection in the future Internet of Things field and an important part of the smart city. Smart light poles collect city information through integrated sensors. These data can interact with the government’s internal transportation system, police management system, financial management system, and procurement system to provide multiple data support for smart city big data applications.
Smart street light poles have applications including street lighting control system, WIFI antenna base station, video monitoring management, advertising screen broadcast control system, real-time monitoring of urban environment, emergency call system, water level monitoring, parking space management, charging pile system and manhole cover monitoring system. In addition, Bivocom Smart Street Light Cloud Platform realizes remote control and monitoring of smart street light poles.
Smart Light Pole System Composition
The smart light pole of IoT is composed of four layers: terminal perception layer, network communication layer, data management layer, and platform application layer.
1. Front-end Perception Layer
The terminal perception layer refers to the sensing devices such as cameras and sensors, which can collect and acquire the data of all terminal devices in the smart light pole application scheme. The terminal perception layer devices involved in the smart light poles of Bivocom include: smart street lights, security cameras, LED display screens, environmental monitoring, water level monitoring, manhole cover monitoring, parking space monitoring and other related sensors.
2. Network Layer
Network communication layer uses 5G / 4G network, terminal sensors report the collected relevant information to the data management layer, and the management layer can send operation instructions to the perception layer. In the application of smart light poles, the two-way data transmission mode is adopted, and NB-IoT with flexible networking is used to control and monitor street lights. At the same time, 5G / 4G, wired and other communication solutions are used for real-time remote control of smart street light poles. It can support seamless access to various sensing devices at the same time, which is convenient for unified data collection and management analysis. The smart street light pole of Bivocom uses a dedicated gateway for smart street lights, which can be compatible with multiple communication standard solutions, such as NB-IoT and 4G, or zigbee, lora and wired communication. The network can be formulated according to specific scenarios Communication scheme.
The second generation of Bivocom TG464, the smart street light edge gateway of the Internet of Things, adopts the ARM architecture and supports secondary development and edge computing. It can be compatible with various smart street light application scenarios and platforms. Plug-and-play type, can perform single control and centralized control operation on street lights.
3. Data Layer
Above the network communication layer is the data layer. This layer analyzes and processes the raw data information obtained by the perception layer, such as temperature, humidity, noise, and surveillance video, to provide a powerful data foundation for the smart street light pole system and facilitate the application layer. Analysis and query.
4. Platform Application Layer
The application layer functions of Bivocom Smart Street light Cloud Platform include street light lighting monitoring, security monitoring, environmental monitoring, information release, network broadcast, emergency call, LED screen, charging pile, IP sound column, one-key alarm, 5G base station, parking space Management, manhole cover monitoring and other functions.
Functions of The Smart Street Light Pole
1. Street Light Intelligent Control
The system uses wireless WiFi, 5G / 4G and other Internet of things and communication technologies to realize the remote single lamp lighting, dimming, detection and other management and control functions of each smart lamppost, which can easily achieve the brightness and switch of a single street light, on the one hand, the goal of energy saving can be achieved, on the other hand, lighting control can also be achieved.
2. Automatic Control of Street Lights
No manual adjustment is required. The smart street light pole can automatically adjust the brightness of the lamp according to the flow of people, traffic, and natural light. At the same time, it can automatically switch the scene mode. The mode effect can be arbitrarily set to achieve full intelligence, reduce the cost of use, and improve the user experience.
3. Urban Environmental Monitoring
By integrating various environmental monitoring sensors on the smart light pole, the outdoor temperature and humidity, atmospheric pressure, illuminance, PM2.5 and other environmental parameters are collected in real time. The real-time data is transmitted through the wireless ad hoc network composed of intelligent lamps, and the collected data is collected in the background. Information analysis, real-time display of temperature, humidity, and other information through the display screen, effectively grasp the urban environmental data.
4. Charging Pile Module
Cooperate with the government’s layout to promote new energy vehicles. Charging piles installed on smart street light poles in stations and residential areas are cost-effective solutions. There is no need for repeated line construction and it does not occupy urban construction land. Connect the charging pile to the network management center, and through various application APPs developed by charging pile manufacturers or third-party software companies, you can implement online functions including GSI charging pile position query, appointment charging, charging reminder and online payment; the owner is waiting for charging At the same time, you can watch local videos, music, news and other content, easily pass the time for charging.
5. City data collection
The smart light pole can be connected to other nearby Internet of Things devices, such as video surveillance, face recognition, security monitoring, trash can monitoring, manhole cover monitoring, soil monitoring, etc., to achieve unified intelligent management of other devices to facilitate data management.
6. LED Screen Information Display
The LED screen equipped with the smart light pole can realize the display of information, so that the information can be pushed in a timely manner. It can also push the convenience information and the advertisement information. The LED screen control center is remotely managed without switching on site.
On the whole, the construction of smart cities is developing rapidly, and the construction of smart street lights is also in rapid development. Accessing smart street light poles through the smart street light platform can effectively control the urban hub and effectively control the city’s operating status. The implementation of decision-making is of great significance.
