Street lights as an IoT platform

A lighting control system will be built in the city district of Viinikka. The system will act as a platform for different kinds of sensors and controls, among other things. The district will also have a fibre network that covers street light hubs and traffic light controllers. As a result, the lighting network will start to function as a telecommunications network and a platform for different services.

A block-by-block concept, developed by Wirepas Oy and Capelon Ab, will be piloted as a platform solution. The concept enables the implementation of IoT solutions block by block, with scalable progress. The solution is based on an open IoT platform, which gives service providers an opportunity to integrate their sensors or apps into the system.
