Nijmegen chose Tvilight. The intelligent lighting solution delivered by Tvilight fully solved all these challenges and met the city’s criteria. Within a week of installation, Tvilight lighting controls made the roadway lighting adaptive. The lighting levels now adjust automatically based on the actual traffic conditions.
When no presence is detected, the streetlights dim to 20% of their full-capacity. Such minimum light levels ensure that there is still visibility on the street and thereby assuring the safety and security. When a car approaches, a number of surrounding lights in front of the car glow-up to a brighter level, ensuring that the car is always surrounded by a safe circle of light.
The lighting levels also adjust to the weather conditions, which allows for the on-demand lighting at all the time. In this way, the road-users enjoy the driving experience without noticing the lights glowing or dimming.
As expected, the city achieves over 60% in energy savings and an equivalent reduction in the CO2 emissions. Furthermore, the Tvilight system allows remote monitoring, management and control of entire lighting infrastructure through the user-friendly CityManager software. By monitoring and counting the traffic, the system is able to analyze the traffic patterns and help in improving the traffic flow.
