Ruud Lighting/BetaLED along with the University of California at Davis have developed “smart” LED parking lot lights that reduce the energy consumption by 80% over the more traditional metal-halide lamps they replaced. The 50 LED light fixtures implement a two-level activity sensing system that dims the lights to half power when no motion is detected and then bring them back up to full power when motion is sensed.
Along with conserving energy, drivers, pedestrians, lot attendents, and security personnel will now have visual ques to the presence of other drivers/pedestrians in the area. After two years of development and testing, the fixtures were installed in the UC Davis South Entry Parking Structure. The smart lighting system technology is being destributed via Cree’s LED University program. Very cool indeed! 🙂
