As opposed to the traditional narrowband control, the technology of broadband remote control offers the option to incorporate illumination into the Smart technology concepts (Smart City, IoT, Industry 4.0, and Car2Car/ Infrastructure Communications). The current street lighting systems are not compatible with smart technologies without adding new and reliable data transmission systems. The proposed technology offers transmission rates from 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps without constructing new data infrastructure. The communication between the control centre and the light source occurs on the existing power lines, which is an advantage. The team of Professor Karel Sokanský have developed a complex solution for light control without any additional costs. Moreover, the solution brings other advantages, such as lower costs of electric energy supplies when detecting no traffic and thus no need for lighting. In the future, the system may be used in combination with other technologies for the cases of emergencies.
