The LUMINEUX project is concerned with the societal problem of energy efficiency and over-consumption caused by urban lighting. According to ADEME, public lighting accounts for 41% of electricity consumption by local and regional authorities. It should be noted that the impact of mastering public lighting concerns not only the reduction of energy consumption, but also the safety of people and goods, and the reduction of light nuisances. The main objective of the LUMINEUX project is to make urban and peri-urban lighting intelligent by combining an on-board and communication vision system. This will help reduce costs for operators and help preserve the environment through lower energy consumption. The principle of the project is to use a vision system in order to adapt the lighting according to the analysis of the scene (presence of two pedestrian wheels, dense traffic, slippery road …). The system should also be able to analyse abnormal events such as an accident, a pedestrian on the road, a car against the direction. In this sense, it will contribute to improving road safety and the citizen. The different systems will have to communicate in order to anticipate the lighting compared to the scene recognized under the luminaires in a near area. This project is supported by the PRISME research laboratories of the University of Orleans and LI of the University of Tours with the support of the company Lenzi, the first public lighting manufacturer of style.
