Amid the global development trend of smart city, major cities are introducing smart streetlight systems one after another. These systems do not only examine energy consumption to save energy, but also collect real-time information about the city, such as real-time traffic, measurement data, air quality, temperature monitoring and so forth, providing more valuable data for the city. Smart streetlights can realize overall monitoring and management on the city’s environmental quality, safety of public areas as well as publicity of instant messages so as to improve the development level of new smart city as well as provide basic support for the construction of perceptive network.
Macau SAR Government issued its consultation on five-year development plan in building a smart city and suggest to collect environment information by using smart streetlights. As a public utility responsible for power supply and managing streetlights, CEM will cooperate with the Government’s requirements, in a bid to jointly shape Macau into a smart city that provides intelligent services for its residents. We will complete the installation of smart street lights at Rua de D. Belchior Carneiro, University of Macau Hengqin Campus and Avenida da Amizade in early 2019. During the period, the operating models will be agreed among the users and commissioned for testing, including government departments, public organizations and partner institutions.
