FEATURE: SMART CITIES
With the Smart Streetlight system, the
lighting policy can be flexibly configured and
modified on a per-streetlight basis.
The management platform provides
information about the working status
and service life of every streetlight, which
reduces the workload of traditional road
Heavy vehicle management:
Almost all industrial cities experience the
overloading and speeding of vehicles,
which easily damages roads and increases
To prevent this, Yanbu has buried pressure
and length sensors in important entrances
and exits of the industrial areas.
These sensors work with HD License Plate
Recognition (LPR) cameras that are set
up at the roadside to accurately record
information about all vehicles passing by,
such as the registration information, speed
Through the networks, routers, and switches,
such information will be uploaded to the
automatic management system that can
assess penalties to vehicles for overloading
The new dynamic weighing system does not
require vehicle docking or manual guidance;
therefore, the traffic is not affected.
The dynamic weighing system also does not
require fixed weighing sites or employees
for on-site work, reducing construction and
operations costs by 80%.
Smart waste management:
The Smart Waste Management Solution
provides capacity sensors powered by
solar energy. With such capacity sensors
installed, the fill-level of a garbage bin
is reported in real time, so that the
administrator can optimise the driving
routes of garbage vehicles to improve the
garbage collection efficiency.
In addition, by integrating terminals such
as digital signage, environment monitoring
sensors, emergency alarming devices,
speakers, and surveillance cameras, the
streetlights can provide diverse information
(such as emergency notification, business,
and weather) and provide convenient
services (such as emergency calls and
In addition, the oil consumption of garbage
vehicles is monitored. The administrator is
notified of all exceptional changes in the oil
volume to prevent oil theft. The parking lots in Yanbu have long been
free of charge for citizens, which leads to
unfair allocation of parking resources in
Smart streetlights: While keeping most parking lots free of
charge, the smart parking management
system charges the residents who use the
parking lots in popular places.
The old streetlight system had limited
management and control over streetlights.
The system could simply turn on and off
streetlights, and only notify the related
management department of streetlight
faults. Now, the energy-consuming and
high-voltage sodium lamps that could
not be remotely controlled have been
replaced with new LED lighting modules,
which feature low energy consumption, can
be automatically turned on/off, and can
have brightness adjusted according to the
The use of such modules reduces the lighting
energy consumption by 70%.
Such a successful combination of
technologies and economics ensures that
resources are provided based upon citizens’
needs. The usage of a parking space is
reported in real time by the geomagnetic and
infrared sensor installed on the parking space.
The number of available parking spaces
and the occupancy duration of each
parking space are automatically and quickly
determined. Citizens can pay parking fees in
various ways, such as using mobile phones
and parking fee machines.
THESE APPLICATIONS IMPROVE
MUNICIPAL ADMINISTRATION EFFICIENCY,
ENHANCE PUBLIC SAFETY AND CREATE A
BETTER LIVING ENVIRONMENT.
