Sentosa Development Corporation is partnering with lighting products and services company Philips Lighting to pilot a connected streetlight management system on Singapore's island resort Sentosa.
This five-year project involved the installation of close to 300 light-emitting diode (LED) streetlamps covering a distance of 3.4km along the island's major roads - Artillery Avenue, Allanbrooke Road leading to Sentosa Cove and Bukit Manis Road.
The project will track the efficiencies gained from smart street lighting, Philips Lightning and Sentosa said in a joint press release on 13 October 2016.
The new lighting system integrates remote management capabilities into the Philips GreenVision Xceed LED luminaires. It will provide better illumination for road users. This will also enable greater operational efficiencies for the island's maintenance crew, who are notified of specific lighting faults through a central control system.
With a friendly graphical user interface (GUI), the Philips connected streetlight management system allows real-time monitoring of the street lamps with map-based asset management, automatic fault notifications, energy consumption measurement, and lifetime management of the luminaires.
"Leveraging the smart technology of this new lighting system helps to bring about increased energy savings, greater operation efficiencies and at the same time, an enhanced experience for our guests," said Alvin Chia Deputy Director of Asset Management, Sentosa Development Corporation.
"This project resonates with Singapore's Smart Nation goal, and also puts Sentosa at the forefront of Asia's travel and leisure industry," added Wee Shiang Ning, General Manager of Philips Lighting Singapore.
