It is well documented that the risk of serious traffic accidents is lower on illuminated roads, than roads without street lighting. Our overall vision is to make the roads safer and smarter. One traffic accident, is one too many!
In Norway, there are two problem scenarios. Some roads are illuminated all night long, both densely or rarely traveled, which constitutes an enormous energy use and operating costs. On the other hand, municipalities with lower operating budgets, turn off the street lights to save money, when traffic decreases around midnight, resulting in an increased risk for accidents.
Decca “Smart Road Lighting” addresses these problems by only illuminating the roads when weather and traffic conditions demand it. When there is no need for street lighting, the lights are dimmed to an energy-saving level.
