Outdoor lighting: 3 trends that are revolutionising the sector
Nowadays, the city is the main stage where people's lives unfold. If we consider that the majority of the global population lives in urban centres and that this trend is only increasing, it seems pertinent to analyse how these spaces are been transformed and what are the challenges faced by lighting.
Sustainability is the basis of smart city designs that have already become a reality. A smart city is capable of satisfying its inhabitants' needs from a social, environmental, and functional point of view through the integration of Information and Communications Technologies. Therefore, connectivity is essential for the development of this type of space.
Lighting is one of the most important components in the development of smart cities. Intelligent lighting systems enable the operation, monitoring, and management of urban lighting via wireless communication networks. By using remote control technologies, it is possible to adapt the lighting to the specific needs of each space while optimising costs and providing greater versatility and interaction.
Thanks to this way of understanding space, cities redefine their own identity. Spatial diversity, adapted to the social needs of its inhabitants, contributes to cultural transformation and stimulates the well-being of citizens.
Thus, the adaptability of outdoor lighting systems to the different spaces making up the city is one of the most important trends in the sector. The success of a good lighting design depends on its ability to solve the functional, emotional, and social needs of the users.
