Smart Human Factors for Safe Illumination to Protect Taoyuan
The City Government of Taoyuan has collaborated with vendors through the PFI approach to construct Taiwan's first human-centered smart lighting street lamp system. Smart street lights (dual modes of luminance/illuminance) and luminance-based street lights are placed along Section 3 and 5 of Gaotie South Road, which incorporate the concepts of human-centered lighting and visual design and smart LED to monitor determine the reflection of road surface, further adjusting illuminance and luminance. For example, when rain changes the road conditions, the smart LED street lights switch from illuminance suitable for dry roads to luminance suitable for wet roads. This implementation improves the overall lighting uniformity of roads after the rain and road users' visual comfort, making it the best configuration for road lighting.
