London to Deploy 14,000 iPad-controlled Smart Street Lights Over the Next Four Years
A first for the UK, the city council says that its initial investment in the smart street lights will be recouped within seven years thanks to the new lights' lower cost of operation. The lights will allegedly save taxpayers £420,000 per year in energy bills starting in 2015. With favorable figures like that, it's likely that we will see other modern cities adopt similar smart lighting systems in the future.
