PROJECT DESCRIPTION

In the present system, mostly  lightning up of streets is done through High Intensity Discharge lamps (HID), whose energy consumption is high. Furthermore, there is no specialized mechanism to turn on the Highway light in the evening and switch off in the morning.

Its intensity also cannot be controlled according to the requirement so there is a need to switch on to an alternative method of lightning system, i.e., by using LEDs. This system is built to overcome the present day drawbacks of HID lamps.

This system demonstrates the usage of the LEDs (light emitting diodes) as the light source and its variable intensity control, according to the requirement. LEDs consume less power and its life time is very high , as compared to the conventional HID lamps.

Most  important and interesting feature is that LED intensity can be controlled according to the requirement during non-peak hours which is not feasible in HID lamps. Moreover, a light sensing device LDR (Light Dependent Resistance) is used to sense the light, whose resistance reduces drastically in  the day light to disable the control power to the LEDs.

A cluster of LEDs are used to form a street light. The Arduino contains programmable instructions which controls the intensity of lights based on the PWM (Pulse width modulation) signals generated.

The intensity of lights is kept high during the peak hours, as the traffic on the roads tend to decrease slowly in the late nights; the intensity also decreases progressively till morning. Finally it completely shuts down at morning 6, and again resumes at 6pm in the evening. The process is repeated.

This concept in future can be enhanced by integrating it with the solar panel, which converts the solar intensity into corresponding voltage, and this energy is used to feed up the highway lights.
