The trend of devices being smart, efficient, connected, or classified amongst the Internet of things (IoT) is catching on like wildfire, and the outdoor lighting world has been no exception.


As the world gets more interactive, so does our lighting. This push for connected lighting is driven not only by innovation and technological evolution but also by regulatory influences. As the penetration of LED luminaires increases in the lighting installed base, end users are looking to optimize the return on their solid-state lighting (SSL) investments by coupling their lighting systems with lighting controls.
Many customers are going beyond the control of lighting systems to make operational decisions by using monitored lighting data, tracking their lighting assets, and assessing the functionality of lighting equipment. Furthermore, the combination with the Smart Grids allow new services and functionalities for the devices, as well as better balance supply and demand between producers and consumers of energy. Smart Grid is based on combining “information and communication technologies” with “automation and control” from energy generation, transport and distribution, electrical storage, to energy consumption to achieve what is mastered also Intelligent Electrical Networks
In this side event we will host several professionals from the lighting, energy efficiency and automation industries with the aim of discuss the most important and relevant characteristics to bear in mind for this kind of projects. During the event, you will have the opportunity to interact with these professionals to raise your doubts and concerns about these new market trends.


In addition, among the different presentations you can also find real success stories in different cities and public spaces, which will allow you to learn about good practices, analyze the needs of this sector and find out where this sector is headed.

Is Blockchain The Way To Save IoT? The internet of things (IoT) was a hot topic in tech a few years ago, with everyone pitching IoT platforms, “smart” products and automated, real-time, interconnected “things” everywhere.

 

The billions of smart devices coming to the internet of things could transform homes, cities and lives. But they also could create a serious security headache.

The centralized security model common in the enterprise today will struggle to scale up to meet the demands of the internet of things, or IoT. And, with so many devices designed to be tiny and unobtrusive, pulling them from circulation could be difficult if they are captured in a botnet or go rogue.

We, in Alastria, are exploring what are the solutions available in the blockchain community around IOT to integrate it to the platform. This event will explores the Blockchain as a technology that can improve Internet of things.
