SIRIUS+

Begin of Project: 01.05.2014  End of Project: 30.09.2016

Sensor-based Smart Lighting for traffic-adaptive lighting management to increase energy efficiency

Public lighting for streets as well as for walkways and bikeways is responsible for a huge amount of the overall communal energy consumption. The main objective of project SIRIUS+ is the development of an energy efficient system that includes a stronger integration and combination of measurement data for detecting the presence of different traffic participants as well as highly optimized LED-lights and specially adapted control and management strategies. The system itself will look on the traffic in its entirety to open up the possibility for efficiency improvements with traffic adaptive control of the public lighting in areas that would not provide this possibility at this moment. A first step to create a standardized, efficient system for traffic adaptive lighting management with open interfaces should also be a part of the project.

About Lampros Fotiadis

Lampros Fotiadis MEng, MBA, was born in 1980 in Greece. His passion for engineering led him to receive his Engineer’s degree (MEng equivalent) from the Electrical and Computer Engineering school of the Aristotle University (Greece) in 2004. During his studies, he specialised in Electronics and Computer Engineering. In his diploma thesis, he simulated and implemented a multi-zone fuzzy-logic heating system using a real-time reconfigurable System-on-Chip. Pursuing a holistic approach to solving engineering problems, he successfully earned an MBA degree from the University of Macedonia (Greece) in 2006 and his master thesis examined the relation between European environmental policies and the European Energy market. He worked as an expert IT and Physical security consultant for more than 10 years and his expertise include system design and requirement analysis, system integration and product management. His recent areas of interests are Data Science, Machine Learning, Autonomous Driving and Smart Grids. Since February 2017 he is working as project member at the Institute of Computer Technology in the Energy&IT Group, where he is especially contributing know-how as IT and physical security consultant in the areas of smart grids and industry 4.0.
