In an advanced world where every city strives for progress and intelligence, using the existing infrastructure in cities and upgrading them is the most cost effective way to develop them and make them intelligent. One of the features of the smart city is the use of new urban lighting and illuminants such as smart street lighting. There are more than 300 million streetlights in the world, but most have not yet been upgraded to LED lights, even though they offer clear technological and economic benefits. Traditional light bulbs are gradually being replaced by more efficient and controllable LED light bulbs. The design proposed in this article for smarter lighting of downtown arcades includes various components such as intelligent LED control loops, gateways, sensors, and a centralized management operating system. In this paper, the lighting of a two-lane expressway is designed and modeled, then the energy consumption of both traditional lighting and intelligent lighting with motion sensor is studied. A case study in this regard is one of the highways of Ahar city.
