Philips City Touch
By 2030 over 5 billion people will live in urban areas, resulting in larger, busier cities. City planners and architects around the world are working hard to produce innovative solutions to meet the future demands of city living.
Drawing on more than 100 years of experience in lighting, Philips has created CityTouch: an online outdoor lighting management system that enables dynamic, intelligent and flexible control on a city-wide scale. It provides light precisely when, where and in the right amount needed. When combined with LED lighting, City Touch can achieve up to 70% savings in energy and up to 70% in maintenance costs compared to conventional lighting.
CityTouch enables its users to manage all the lighting systems for an entire city from a single, intuitive online interface. It provides easy, streamlined maintenance and oversight with real-time status reports for every individual light point. That way, lighting operators can track the consumption and output of every part of their system and can fine-tune lighting levels to meet local needs.
Today, CityTouch is already being used by major lighting operators in a variety of successful projects in European cities, including Prague and London. This short video looks at how the innovative system will deliver cost effective lighting solutions for the cities of the future.
