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.
