LED public lighting with smart grid

Summary

An initiative to replace 75 percent of Rio's public lighting with LED bulbs will make public areas safer by providing brighter lighting, at the same time reducing energy costs. The new lights will be part of a "smart grid" that could eventually incorporate sensors that notify authorities of things like traffic conditions, neighborhood microclimates, saturation of road infrastructure, and criminal activity.
