Smart Cities

Society is undergoing something of a sea change, with networked cities no longer the future but long since a reality. At the same time, the growth in urban areas around the world is presenting humans with new challenges when it comes to communal living. By 2050, the world’s population according to UN estimates will be around ten billion, 67% of whom will live in cities.

Digitalisation of everyday life

Virtually all areas of public life are increasingly becoming digitalised, with the lighting industry is playing a key role in this development.

Goal of digitalization

Innovative mobility and ecological sustainability guarantee a high quality of life – thanks to high-power digital infrastructures.

Selux Smart Lighting — much more than light

Intelligently networked luminaires process information in real time: How great is the traffic density? Will it rain in the next few minutes? Are there any events taking place in the vicinity? Digital technologies enable a permanent flow of data.

Creating the infrastructure of tomorrow, today

Our products have been based on the principle of modularity for a long time. Housing, light units, technologies can all be sized accordingly so that even the most complex needs can be catered for using an unambiguous design and a consistent idea.

Now we have integrated additional functions that go far beyond mere lighting.

Selux Smart Lighting

 Functions at a glance

Light quality

Premium quality Selux optics generate optimal light for a high level of visual comfort, generating quality of life and safety in public areas – both indoors and outdoors.

Adaptivity of light

Light interacts with human beings and responds to the widest variety of user requirements. In this way regulated light that is needs-adjusted enables responsible use of resources; – increasing energy efficiency and reducing light pollution.

Adaptivity of light

Quantity of light can be regulated depending on time of day and weather conditions: from the maximum during the rush hour to the minimum when traffic is quiet…

Adaptivity of light

… and as required late at night or on rain-soaked roadways.

Networking of luminaires

Luminaires are ideal for building up digital networks. Each luminaire can be controlled and regulated individually - data is captured locally, forwarded via the network and processed centrally on a server. Modern encryption standards ensure security of all data.

Public internet access

Integrated WiFi interfaces transform luminaires into hotspots and enable simple internet access – whether for free, public or commercial use.

Integrated cameras

Cameras integrated within luminaires or poles foster safety in public spaces.
In combination with appropriate software, image data can be recorded in real time and analysed.

Acoustic functions

Luminaires can also take on acoustic functions in public spaces using integrated loudspeakers, enabling information or music to be played back over large spaces.
Data can be allocated individually to certain loudspeakers and specific luminaires equipped with emergency functions.

Use as charging stations

Especially in cities, electromobility is one of the great topics of the future. With Charge+Light, Selux is already making a comprehensive contribution to charging of electric cars. Light poles are ideal for such charging operations because, as well as the energy source, they also provide enough light for them to be used at nighttime - a crucial safety aspect.

Sensible use of data

Integrated sensors sense their surroundings, collate data on this and transfer it in real time. This enables analyses to be drawn up and scenarios developed in order to regulate traffic flows or optimise logistics chains.
Our goal is to support our customers and partners in using data to generate benefits for people and society.

Application areas for data

  • Availability of parking spaces
  • Traffic and transport (counts and control)
  • Environment (air quality, noise, emissions etc.)
  • And lots more besides

City Marketing

Luminous hotspots can provide effective assistance for all types of city marketing, acting as a source for announcements, adverts or apps. Depending on the location, appropriate information on the surrounding area can be displayed such as weather forecasts or tourist attractions.
