Zhaga Smart City Sensor Awards
January 18, 2023
The Zhaga Consortium is launching the global Zhaga Smart City Sensor Awards to address the needs of many cities that have installed Zhaga-D4i certified streetlights. The awards encourage and recognize excellence in smart city sensors that can be installed on streetlights using the Zhaga Book 18 standard and are suitable for Zhaga-D4i certification.
The awards are open to sensor manufacturers as well as universities and students.
Over the last 7 years, the Zhaga Consortium has created and further developed a new universal platform for streetlighting connectivity by offering Zhaga Book 18 “Smart interface between outdoor luminaires and sensing / communication modules” to the market. This platform allows streetlights to be the backbone of smart cities. Streetlights are regularly positioned, secure, powered and in a great location for many sensing tasks and for communications.
Zhaga’s Book 18 takes this further by standardising the mechanical interface, intra-luminaire communication protocol and power budget for a control device. Zhaga also creates a new market opportunity for ‘Smart City Sensors’. With over 200 hundred families of Zhaga-D4i luminaires from some of the world’s leading manufacturers already certified, it becomes the cheapest way for city-wide deployment of smart sensors.
The Zhaga Smart City Sensor Awards will promote and celebrate innovations in this smart city revolution and Zhaga invites manufacturers, innovators and academics/students to enter.
