LED Roadway Lighting and its partner Silver Spring Networks, Inc. (NYSE:SSNI), today announced they have been selected by Glasgow City Council to deliver the Intelligent Street Lighting requirements for their innovative Future City Demonstrator initiative. The project will leverage LED street lighting from LED Roadway Lighting’s NXT range of luminaires and Silver Spring’s IPv6-based smart city networking platform to integrate LED street lights, traffic cameras, and sensors into two adaptive lighting systems in the city center and along the River Clyde’s “Clyde Walkway.” The adaptive lighting systems will monitor vehicle, bicycle, and pedestrian traffic and dynamically dim and increase illumination accordingly, increasing energy efficiency, urban sustainability and improving citizen safety.
Director of Business Development for LED Roadway Lighting, Huw Convery, remarked, “the collaboration of the two technologies moves street lighting into a new dimension; this is an exciting and strategic project to be involved in. Local authorities countrywide will have an added purpose for fully utilizing their lighting inventory, but more importantly, the benefit to the public from using adaptive lighting will be immense.”
The Future City Glasgow Demonstrator is an ambitious program aimed at using technology to make life in the city smarter, safer, and more sustainable. It is funded by the UK’s Technology Strategy Board, which invests in UK innovation projects to drive economic growth. The program combines expertise from across the public, private, and academic sectors with cutting-edge technology to address issues such as public safety, transport, health, and energy.

Glasgow’s vision for leveraging proven, standards-based technology to drive sustainability, lower costs, enable access to open data, and improve urban livability for residents is amongst the world’s leading future city initiatives,” said Mark Coyle, Managing Director for the UK & Ireland, Silver Spring Networks.
As cities worldwide face the need to deliver enhanced services to their community whilst operating with unprecedented budgetary pressures, Silver Spring’s solution helps them tackle their most pressing economic, sustainability, health and safety, and mobility challenges today.
