Intelligente Straßenlampe

Intelligent Street Lamp

Scope A range of smart city technologies developed by Continental for an Intelligent Infrastructure – such as Intelligent Intersections and Intelligent Street Lamps – will be implemented at two Smart City pilot locations (USA and China) which are Continental test fields in real road traffic. Intelligent Street Lamps are a key element in the development of a safe, clean and smart city. Using secure connectivity and sensorics, Intelligent Street Lamps simplify the management of lighting, while monitoring and analyzing environment, traffic and parking information in smart cities.
