Abstract

Historically, the road lighting system was introduced mainly to avoid crime. Now a day, it plays a vital role in order to avoid accidents, especially during night. It is estimated that the night time accidents are 2.5 times more than day time. Hence, increase in illumination can drastically reduce accidents. In this project, the group of area is monitored whether the illumination is high or low. This illumination measurement is sent to the respective national highway authority via SMS or phone call. In order to maintain the intensity and to avoid dark space the secondary source which is a renewable resource is used. Therefore there will not be any dark space over the highways. This efficiency defines the control of street lighting system and thereby saving electricity which is a major concern worldwide.
