Abstract: With increasing population and the corresponding increase in road’s there has been a significant increase in the number of street light requirements, thereby, increasing the energy and investment costs . However, with the advancement in technology, many new different energy efficient and smart street lighting solutions approaches proposed. The conventional systems prove to be without purpose on most days as they are manually operated which thus leads to huge amounts of meaningless power and human-power wastage . In this project, I have designed an automated IOT based street lighting framework with integrated sensors and controllers communicating with each other using the LoRa technology which requires low power and cost thereby making the system more secure, cost and power effective solution. The LoRa end nodes(streetlights) send sensor data over the air to the LoRa gateway using LoRa WAN protocol, placed at a maximum distance of 5km. The gateway in turn forwards the data to the cloud server which processes it and communicates with the sensors for required actions.
