    Smart trains don’t just run on time. With the help of Echelon’s IzoT platform for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), advanced trains use split-second, utterly reliable communications to brake responsively, react instantly to unanticipated conditions, and achieve optimal schedules and car configurations.

    With the announcement last week that Echelon has completed the sale of its Smart Grid Division, the company are now “All In” on the Industrial Internet of Things. This move to focus their efforts is in tune with others in Silicon Valley, such as the recently announced Paypal spinoff from eBay, driven through by Carl Icahn to increase shareholder value.

    In a typical northern European city, an outdoor lighting system can account for as much as 38 percent of the city’s total energy use. In an effort to save energy, a European law requires that street lighting systems use electronic ballasts. The city of Oslo, Norway, sought a solution that would satisfy this law, along with various European and worldwide directives to reduce energy use and carbon dioxide emissions. The Norwegian capital also wanted the system to reduce streetlight operating

    French Street Lighting System Cuts Energy Use by 35% with LONWORKS® Network

    The Challenge
    Sénart en Essonne, a fast-growing area 35 km south of Paris comprising four cities, has a street lighting network of about 3,500 streetlights. The town council wanted to reduce the area’s energy use by 35% to significantly contribute to its sustainable growth plan. The council also hoped to lower its operating budget and maintenance costs while increasing road safety.

    Low power has become a primary design consideration over the past decade, driven by consumer portable devices packing in greater amounts of processing power and sophisticated communications, while at the same time providing extended battery life even though developments in battery technology have advanced little in the same timeframe. But the Internet of Things (IoT) will take those requirements to new heights and spread them to additional parts of the design flow.
