This project Equonix Tech Lab is working to propose the IoT based solution in the Smart City projects in India. This main aim of this activity is to develop a scalable infrastructure which can help identify the power consumption, automation street light monitoring from the centralized remote location.
By this IoT project, we are developing an electronic device that uses LDR sensor to sense the sunlight intensity and send the data to the STM32 based microcontroller based board for interpretation. The system has been programmed in a way that says whenever the sunlight intensity drops below a threshold value that we set, it will facilitate the switching ON/ OFF of the street light.
The hardware system uses GSM-based method to provide the location of the street lights and also updates the regular status of the light ON|OFF status to the FAVORIOT server. The data collected will be then sent to the cloud where it can be stored, analyzed and interpreted for a better understanding of the power consumed. This also facilitates smart energy management to save a lot of electricity. Also, the remote server has the ability to update the Firmware Over the Air (FOTA) from the FAVORIOT server.
