A city-wide network to connect above and below ground controls for 200,000 street and traffic lights across Paris is to be put into action.
US-based Silver Spring Networks has expanded its relationship with EVESA, the street light and traffic control systems operator for Paris, to deploy a canopy of cabinet-based controllers across the city.
President and chief executive Scott Lang said it has completed the first phase of the project and the agreement has now been extended.
The platform developed by Silver Spring enables cities to devise and put into action intelligent lighting systems that have benefits including increased energy efficiency and lower operational costs. The technology can also be used with other areas such as traffic management and water conservation.
It comes as the company announces another agreement to connect 500,000 networked street lights across South Florida.
