A simulation model for the financial evaluation of smart streetlight technologies.
The simulation creates a streetlight installation using the specified configuration and compares its lifecycle value against other lighting options. The streetlight installation can also add sensor systems to enable traffic-aware on-demand adaptive road lighting to reduce electrical and maintenance costs.
The simulation provides a breakdown of costs and net-present value comparisons against existing technologies. Three Queensland cities were used as a basis of a case-study, and the simulation used traffic data from those locations to precisely inform the likely dimming scenarios.
