It’s no secret that public lighting installations can have a meaningful effect on areas that reaches far beyond the purpose of simply providing light. They can also have a positive impact on economic development, neighborhood revitalization, tourism, and community pride. Especially during major events, these impacts are multiplied by the proliferation and use of digital tools on social media.
The LED connected lighting system supplied by Philips Lighting uses Philips ActiveSite System, a cloud-based connected lighting platform that provides remote monitoring, maintenance, and management capabilities to ensure operational efficiency and the ability to program the lights without being tethered to the bridge. Reporting tools and historical analysis also provide unprecedented insight into system operations, which authorized system managers from the MN DOT can use to evaluate and optimize performance.
