Smart cities: public lighting revolution by Belgian tech startup SmartNodes

smartnodes hiring

The ULg/UCL spin-off SmartNodes, launched in 2014, proposes a smart system revolutionizing the concept of public lighting: providing light only when and where needed, at the right level.

The dispositive, working on LED lampposts with decentralized modules, presents many benefits compared to its competitors: a decrease of power consumption up to 80%*, an improved visual comfort and security to the road users, in addition to the robustness and reliability of the system.

SmartNodes takes part in the innovative smart city trend by implementing technology to the street infrastructure to improve urban life. A smart city uses ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) to increase operational efficiency, share information with the public and improve the quality of government services**.

Thanks to companies like SmartNodes, Europe may become the leader with the largest number of smart cities projects by 2040. The European Commission launched in 2012 the European Innovation Partnership on smart Cities and Communities to support such projects.
