That’s a drop in the bucket of an estimated 360 million streetlights worldwide.The two companies are just starting to see movement putting IoT sensors into the poles. Telensa recently announced a pilot project using AI, but for Signify, that’s beyond the scope of 2019.To date, Signify has deployed a little more than 500 streetlights with integrated LTE or Wi-Fi. It plans to launch this fall a model supporting 5G, including millimeter-wave bands and a mix of sensors.“There’s a lot of work to be done … It can be a challenging sell, but we’re trying be a trusted adviser to the city,” said Bill McShane, national director of Signify’s iCity program.For its part, a small fraction of the 1.7 million LED lights that Telensa has deployed uses sensors. “We’ve grown by a factor of three in four years, much of that on LED conversions … it’s a wave that’s just beginning … [sensors] offer a benefit, but it’s not an overwhelming business case” said Keith Day, vice president of marketing for Telensa.Telensa packs a proprietary 900-MHz radio in a controller pod attached to an LED streetlight. (Image: Telensa) Connected LED lights are an easy sell compared to IoT. The roughly $60 units can last 25 years and pay for themselves in less than seven, thanks to energy savings and central monitoring features that save truck rolls.By contrast, working out the business case for IoT and selling it across multiple city departments is a challenge. In many cases, cities lack big data sets and policies to run analytics.For vendors, the business is “frustratingly different in every country,” Day said. “For example, in the U.S., 65% of streetlights are owned by utilities; in the U.K., they are mainly city-owned.”Often, one entity owns the streetlights, another maintains them, and a third company made them. “You have to understand the supply chain and its motivations,” he said.Like most things in government, the projects move slowly. A typical streetlight pilot takes 18 months.The good news is that “cities want to be smart and utilities want to offer new services, so there’s motivation … there’s a new generation of city leaders coming up, and a lot of pilots related to data services are starting to prove themselves — the U.S. is at the forefront,” he added.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR A Shady Lane Resident Speaks Out IN FAVOR

first_imgDear Editor,This letter is directed at the people who have concerns and are opposing the special permit for a a detox facility on Middlesex Avenue.I applaud you all in wanting to protect your children and grandchildren from the ugly reality around addiction. That is one thing everybody is on the same page about. I encourage you all to read the police log as the Wilmington Apple posts it daily. Almost every week there is at least one drug or alcohol related incident. That’s alarming in the town my son is growing up in. On December 3rd a man was arrested for trafficking over 10 grams of fenantyl. There are so many alarming opioid epidemic statistics RISING at a scary rate that I just don’t have the time to read all of them to you today. Detox admissions in Massachusetts have more than tripled in the last 5 years. The number of overdose deaths in this state is more then 10x what it was 8 years ago. Close to 1800 just this year of confirmed opiate related deaths. If we continue the same approach towards addiction that we have these last 8 years then those numbers will surely continue to rise, and anybody can fall victim. Massachusetts has done a great job in effort to rid the stigma associated with addiction. I don’t want addiction to affect anybody the way it’s affected me before you change the way you view it. How is NOT LETTING a detox open going to protect your children? The statistics in Massachusetts alone, and your police log here in Wilmington make it very evident that unfortunately our community is already being affected by this epidemic.With that being said I understand there are some other concerns. All of which are tied directly to assumptions about addiction, what it is, who it happens to, how we treat it, what works and what doesn’t — most of which are ludicrous if you understood addiction but I will address them anyway. One being property values. Although there is no reliable statistics to prove this could happen as a direct result of a medical detox facility opening, I want you to ask yourself: if the detox doesn’t open and go in this vacant lot, what will? What is going to be opposed next that could potentially affect property values. The other concerns regarding this detox come from a place of concern. I understand that, but if you do enough research and realize how much our community has been affected by this epidemic, I think your concerns would change, considering the ugly truths around addiction are already right here in your neighborhood.YOU SHOULD ALREADY BE CONCERNED YOUR CHILDREN OR PETS COULD BE POKED BY AN IMPROPERLY DISPOSED NEEDLE, because it’s already happening. A detox would have sharps containers and people trained to deal with that kind of stuff. The applicant for this permit also specified he was willing to have 24/7 security. I can’t imagine somebody will be scattering needles in front of a security guard. Secondly, he also assured the board he is willing to find out what kind of waiver he can have patients sign so that police can be notified if a client AMAs and doesn’t follow proper procedure to be given a ride by staff somewhere out of the community or on a train.For the people who’s backyards are sharing property lines with the proposed site, you bought property sharing property lines with a vacant lot.What mostly baffles me is people saying that if the detox goes up, they will be moving because they are concerned for their children’s safety. I encourage you next time you buy a home to research your neighbors. Had you done that when you moved in you’d find many people whom have lived in my home with me have struggled with addiction, overdoses, section 35s, arrests, and drug related incidents. I am grateful life is better now. I hope if addicts are so concerning to your children’s safety that you won’t allow them to walk to Elia’s, that you also would not allow them to walk by my house when I or anybody else was actively using.Truthfully the things that have been said resemble an uneducated and mostly inexperienced speculation on an entire group of people. You’re afraid for your children IF IT OPENS and I AM AFRAID FOR MINE RIGHT NOW. If you’ll say these things at a public hearing, what will you say to your kids behind closed doors? What misinformation are you spreading that your children may carry with them, and my son may hear someday on the bus about his parents whom suffer from addiction. The comments made to me inside and outside the meeting, will the blatant childish tantrums also happen when I walk the neighborhood with my 3 year old?Thank you and have a nice day.Sincerely,Rachel DiDomenicoLike Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

Turner Warns Feds State Endangering Houston With Harvey Aid Delays

first_img 00:00 /01:09 Listen Share To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Photo: Andrew Schneider | Houston Public MediaGoverno Houston Mayor Sylvester TurnerHouston Mayor Sylvester Turner is warning that a government shutdown could significantly set back Harvey recovery efforts.The federal government is set to run out of money Friday. Most observers expect, at best, Congress will pass another continuing resolution to keep the lights on a few more weeks. Meanwhile, Turner says, spring is just a few months away – and with it, the risk of fresh flooding, such as the region suffered in 2015 and 2016. “And so to not vote on the Harvey relief package, let’s say on the 19th, and if it’s postponed another month, it’s just not going to put people in the best position to get prepared for the next storm.”Turner says the City Council would need to send a delegation to Washington to lobby for Harvey aid, a call several council members echoed.“The expression in Kingwood is ‘Kingwood Strong,’” says District E Council Member Dave Martin. “No offense to people in Kingwood, but not a darn thing has changed. I get more help from my Democratic mayor than I do from my Republican state officials and my Republican federal officials. That makes me sick.”Turner also wants to lobby Governor Greg Abbott to tap some of the state’s $11 billion Rainy Day Fund, which Abbott has so far refused to do. Xlast_img read more
