In accordance with the “GE Intelligent City Initiate,” the “data-collecting” LED streetlights will be placed throughout the city’s downtown and surrounding areas.
According to a Thursday morning presentation by GE, the lights will be “interconnected with one another and will collect real-time data,” as reported by the Jacksonville Business Journal.
“GE’s intelligent LEDs are a gateway to city-changing technology, with sensors, controls, wireless transmitters and microprocessors built within the LED system,” GE states.
Once collected, GE’s “Predix software” will analyze the data in real-time, providing the city with an array of information.
“Predix, GE’s software platform for the Industrial Internet, collects and analyzes data from these components, delivering optimized tools that respond to city challenges,” GE says.
