Features of Server controlled Street Lights in Delhi

Looks like Government has finally decided to save electricity which even used to be turned on during the day time sometimes and Delhi gets the first server / computer controlled street light based on technologies which run the mobile, GPRS and GSM.

The catch here is that street lights are based on how much light intensity i.e. I guess then we should have lights turned on earlier in winters and delayed in summers. In case of any failures,  Alert via SMS will be sent to the maintainance staff so that they can act promptly.

The project was taken up by Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) and it will cover streets of Lodhi Road, Bhishma Pitah Marg and Jawaharlal Nehru Marh with more then 2000 street light poles ready.

Here is the Revision 1 ( 55 Page of document) of  Standards for Integrated Street Lighting for Delhi.
