It currently costs the US $1.5 billion per year to run street lights. We thought that there had to be a way to reduce that cost and save electricity

What it does

Smart City Lights is creating a smart street light that

How we built it

We used TRCT 5000 ir sensors to detect the presence of activity. Each sensor were addressable and when a sensor was triggered, it would communicate in MQTT to another micro controller and update associated

Challenges we ran into

We had a major block in progress when we had communication issues between our python code and arduino

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Everyone's commitment to completing the work

What we learned

Teamwork is key to success

What's next for Smart City Lights

Data analytics as well as optimizing the process of processing addresses.
