Mobile apps deployed in smart streetlight project

October 17th, 2018, Published in Articles: PositionIT

TerraGo Technologies has been contracted by Commonwealth Edison Company (ComEd), a unit of Chicago-based Exelon Corporation, for mobile applications that will help automate the inventory, installation and commissioning of approximately 140 000 smart streetlights. ComEd’s smart LED streetlights programme will improve the reliability of public lighting infrastructure and create efficiencies that lead to savings for municipalities. Smart streetlighting systems also have the potential to support emerging sensor-based technologies designed to enhance community safety and resiliency, and new city services. ComEd has now successfully deployed these customised inventory and installation applications using TerraGo Streetlights, a zero-code mobile application framework, fully-integrated with Itron’s smart city management platform, SLV. The inventory and installation applications both consist of native iOS, Android and web-based apps, with configurable workflows, all connected to a secure cloud-based server. The inventory application enables the utility’s personnel to track the full chain-of-custody of all smart streetlight nodes, while the installation application helps crews navigate to streetlight poles to perform new installs or maintenance tasks. Both apps provide features such as barcode/QR code scanning and data validation to reduce errors and prevent return trips.
