We are all aware that streetlamps have their share of eating up a lot of energy while rendering their expected use. But the thing is, no one knows when they are needed and when they are not. However it seems that the Tvilight offers an interesting twist since they only light up when needed.
Ideally or on standby, the street lamps are on dim mode. With the aid of wireless sensors, they light up when they detect a person or a even vehicles are approaching. With that setup, there are bound to be savings somewhere right?
With the concept, carbon emissions are expected to be cut. Maintenance costs can also be saved. But being a concept, there are still questions surrounding its use and if the Tvilight should gain ground, you can bet it will be a continuing process for improvement until the proper one is arrived at in terms of conservation and most importantly, safety.
