The street light has been installed at Pakefield Cliffs in Lowestoft as part of an ongoing trial for the ADEPT Live Labs Project.
The ADEPT SMART Places Live Labs Programme is a £22.9m project funded by the Department for Transport.
In 2017, ADEPT created the SMART Places Research Programme to examine the opportunities and challenges facing the adoption of digital technology across the local highway network. Phase 1 of this programme culminated in the publication of ‘The route to the highways systems of the future’ in October 2017.
Live Labs is Phase 3 of this programme (Phase 2 was a further development stage). Nine local authorities and their partners are working across eight innovative projects. These will develop new SMART approaches across communications, materials, energy solutions and mobility.
