Intelligent Outdoor Lighting Systems (IOLS) is an activity in the Smart Spaces Action Line of the EIT ICT Labs.
- Italy: ST Microelectronics
- Netherlands: Eindhoven University of Technology, Philips
The goal of this activity is to implement an Intelligent Outdoor Lighting System for improved energy efficiency, user experience and safety feeling, via:
- configuration, operation and maintenance of large scale multi-sensor heterogeneous lighting control infrastructures,
- intelligent scene and context classification,
- real-time actuation of outdoor lights based on data analysis and machine learning.
TU/e has been investigating the use of data analysis and machine learning for smart distributed indoor lighting solutions. Within IOLS TU/e will make use of this experience to adapt and apply machine learning algorithms in the context of outdoor lighting. In particular, TU/e will automatically localize the light poles based on RSSI data and data from the presence sensors.

City Traffic Simulator
The City Traffic Simulator can be used to investigate how traffic will affect various presence based city services. It allows to position virtual presence senros on a map and as well as define different traffic flows. The traffic simulation will generate an CSV file which can be further analysed by other tools.
