SMART STREETLIGHT SYSTEM USING IOT PLATFORM
Maintenance of broken streetlights is crucial to ensure safety and convenience among road users. Most of the broken streetlights were maintained by the authorities depending on the receipt complaints from users, especially in the village area. The analysis is required to improve the quality of existing street lighting maintenance services such as the development system that can detect and store data of broken streetlights. Therefore, this system is developed to detect broken streetlights using an Internet of Things (IoT) platform. The main objective of the development is to design a wireless notification system to check the status of streetlight. In this project, the Light Dependent Resistor (LDR) sensor reads light intensity values and transmit them to Node-RED applications using the Message Queuing Telemetry Transport (MQTT) protocol. The MQTT broker connects between the sensor and Node-RED applications using Wi-Fi. The Node-RED application becomes a programming tool for integrating hardware devices with database systems. A database system stores streetlight information such as identification number, streetlight location, and streetlight status. The system can be accessed through the login authentication system. To sum up, in future, utilisation of antenna of Wi-Fi needs to be considered to improve the coverage and strength of Wi-Fi signal.
