Human-centric adaptive lighting with Tvilight CitySense
Tvilight provided the Port of Moerdijk with its patented, industry-leading connected lighting solution consisting of sensors, wireless controls, and online management software CityManager.
A combination of in-built sensors allows this wireless outdoor lighting controller to detect human presence in real-time and adjust the brightness of streetlights automatically (the effect known as “light on demand” or “dynamic dimming”). Each CitySense unit triggers a number of streetlights in front of the approaching user. Unlike with other products on the market, the brightening of the lamps happens gradually, resulting in a creation of a safe circle of light that “follows” the occupant on his or her journey. This allows delivering a seamless experience to the drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians at the Port’s industry terrain.
Using the Tvilight CityManager software, the lighting manager at the Port monitors and controls all connected streetlights remotely from a computer dashboard. Intuitive user interface, system insights, and an array of other helpful features help deliver better outdoor illumination and stay in control of the lighting infrastructure. Furthermore, the outdoor lighting network laid at the industry terrain is a perfect foundation for a Smart City. Thanks to Open APIs, the Tvilight system can be connected to third-party hardware and software solutions, which empowers the Port with the flexibility to use new applications.
