PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The project is designed to detect vehicle movement on highways to switch ON only a block of street lights ahead of it (vehicle), and to switch OFF the trailing lights to save energy. During night all the lights on the highway remain ON for the vehicles, but lots of energy is wasted when there is no vehicle movement.

This proposed system provides a solution for energy saving. This is achieved by sensing an approaching vehicle and then switches ON a block of street lights ahead of the vehicle. As the vehicle passes by, the trailing lights switch OFF automatically. Thus, we save a lot of energy.

So when there are no vehicles on the highway, then all the lights remain OFF. However, there is another mode of operation where instead of switching OFF the lights completely, they remain ON with 10% of the maximum intensity of the light. As the vehicle approaches, the block of street lights switch to 100% intensity and then as the vehicle passes by, the trailing lights revert back to 10% intensity again.

High intensity discharge lamp (HID) presently used for urban street light are based on principle of gas discharge, thus the intensity is not controllable by any voltage reduction. White Light Emitting Diode (LED) based lamps are soon replacing the HID lamps in street light. Intensity control is also possible by Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) generated by the microcontroller.

Sensors used on either side of the road senses vehicle movement and sends logic commands to microcontroller to switch ON/OFF the LEDs. Thus this way of dynamically changing intensity ON/OFF helps in saving a lot of energy. The project uses a PIC series microcontroller.

Further the project can be enhanced by using appropriate sensors for detecting the failed street light and then sending an SMS to the control department via GSM modem for appropriate action.

Q & A
Q:  Can we increase the detection distance between sensors?
A:  Yes, we can increase the detection distance between sensors and this can be done at user end.
Q:  Can we implement this concept in real life situation?
A:  Yes, this concept can be implemented in real life and this can be done at user end.
Q:  Can we use high power LED's rather than low power LED's?
A:  No, high power LED's cannot be used.

In net i browsed about project centers so I have seen your website and address. So i live in Hyd. so i have chosen project from your company.
Topics are convenient for me. so, thats why i have chosen edgefx.
Yeah Delivered On time
directly i purchased
One of my friends already purchased from your company

I got to know about edgefx through google i was searching for street light that detects on vehicle movement then i found edgefx in google. And, i have visited the website..
I found my project title in edgefx then i have decided to purchase project from edgefx.
the kit was delivered on time with right components..
tarun sir has helped me in purchasing the project.
Improve more and more audio-visuals.
i gave reference to my friends.

I was searching my project Railway Track Security by GSM With User Programmable Number Features and i found in Google in Edgefx Kits
I found my project Title so decided to buy that project from Edgefx. I like the project report provided along with the kit.
The kit got delivered to me on time with all the right components
