Paradox Engineering to supply lighting controls to San Francisco

May 16, 2012 - San Francisco will cooperate with Paradox Engineering to start a pilot project to help san Francisco to manage its lighting infrastructure, and further advanced services in the future.

Cities can become Smart when relying on proper use and interpretation of information for any decision about energy and public resources management and service delivery. There is a variety of objects (energy distribution networks, public transport, parking lots, lighting infrastructures, etc.) which can be source of useful information, and more will come by the transformation of any object into a talking mote through the advent of the Internet of Things; municipalities, though, often do not have the possibility to get advantage of these pieces of information.

Reliable infrastructures for data collection and correlation processes are fundamental to turn any system into a smart architecture: the foundation of any Smart City is the integration of existing traditional distribution, communication and service networks with an advanced communication platform. Paradox Engineering offers a unique set of solutions to collect, transport, store and deliver data from new or existing urban infrastructures, therefore enabling the development of any kind of smart services.

PE.AMI stands as the ideal architecture for full-mesh IPv6 ultra-low power wireless sensor networks for smart grid and smart city projects. Wherever a mote generates a data, PE.AMI is the platform to collect it and integrate it into a wider system of information enabling a next generation of services. Offering full modularity, it also allows municipalities and utility companies to develop new methods to take advantage of their investments.

PE.WSNi is the first IPv6 modular cost effective wireless mesh sensor network platform for industrial data acquisition. It can be successfully implemented in power generation/distribution and waste-to-energy plants to enable smarter condition and remote monitoring processes.

PE.VNO allows municipalities and multi-utilities to cost-effectively integrate satellite communication into their wireless sensor network and smart city infrastructures, so to ensure reliable communications of data and commands even in congested urban centres where standard wired and wireless technologies may be unfeasible (ie. limitations in terms of right-of-way access or line-of-sight).

Thanks to Paradox Engineering’s technologies, the goal of a sustainable development model is now fully achievable, featuring higher quality of life for communities, a wiser management of natural resources and people participation.
