Chaitanya Amin , AshutoshNerkar , Paridhi Holani , Rahul Kaul. "GSM Based Autonomous Street Illumination System for Efficient Power Management". International Journal of Engineering Trends and Technology (IJETT). V4(1):54-60 Jan 2013. ISSN:2231-5381. published by seventh sense research group


This paper efficiently defines the control of street lightning system and thereby saving electricity which is a major concern worldwide. It also describes the use of wireless sensor networks using GSM for streetlight monitoring and control. This system would p rovide a remote access for streetlight maintenance and control. It also discusses an intelligent system that takes automatic decisions for luminous control (ON/OFF/DIMMING) considering surrounding light intensity and time of the day both at the same moment . The system also senses various parameters like surrounding temperature, fog, carbon emissions, and noise intensities and suggests corrective measures. Power theft control is also integrated in the same system. The efficiency of the system is designed suc h that it can be readily installed in present on road conditions with extra cost of only a single controlling computer. The system is compatible to solar cell installation
