The LIFE-DIADEME project will introduce a new road lighting control system aimed at reducing energy consumption by 30% compared to the state of the art of existing regulation systems. A network of 1,000 low-cost sensors, located at the Rome EUR neighborhood test site, will capture data on noise, traffic and air pollution. The information collected will feed the data base on the monitored area by promoting the reduction of urban environmental impact and improving road safety through real-time detection of traffic or weather abnormalities. An LCA analysis will assess the costs, the potential market along with the socio-economic impacts of the new system by focusing on reducing public costs for energy, maintenance and electronic waste.
