Moreton Bay council adopts smart lighting
The tender covers the deployment of around 40 street and public area lights with the capacity to host services such as Wi-Fi, smart parking sensors, CCTV and electric vehicle charging.
Division 7 Councillor Denise Sims said the lighting system will be remotely controllable based on weather conditions and have the ability to dim or brighten automatically via motion detectors.
“Providing council with real-time communication of the lightings’ performance, this technology will also help to improve maintenance processes.”
The Mill At Moreton Bay Priority Development Area project will be an innovation and knowledge precinct that will be anchored by Queensland’s first new university campus in over two decades — the University of Sunshine Coast’s Moreton Bay campus.
The precinct is expected to support 6000 jobs, 10,000 university placements and $950 million in economic activity by 2036.
Innovation Spokesperson Councillor Darren Grimwade said the precinct will also serve as a testbed for a wider deployment of the smart lighting technology.
“The Mill will feature Queensland’s first new university campus in over two decades and will act as ground zero when it comes to government, business and industry implementing innovative technologies in the region. Deploying the technology at The Mill first will show us what systems are available and what will work best elsewhere across the region,” he said.
“As a council and community we’ve made great strides in implementing innovative technologies, from the five-star green-star Corso at North Lakes to open data systems, and today’s announcement marks the next step in creating a smart region.”
