Now-a-days the amount of power consumed by lighting and streets shares a major energy demand. The vehicles are passing over always and a part of places will be consisting of less density areas and even no vehicle moments itself in few areas. But during night all street lights will be on in conventional street lighting system. To overcome from this issue, a proper energy saving methods and lighting control to be implemented. The proposed work is to have two controls like, one is to switch of lights during no vehicle moments in streets and automatically switch it on when vehicles arrive and the other modes are to give less intensity light for pedestrian and to switch on bright mode during vehicle moments at sides on the roads. In this work the LED lights are used for street arrangement, the Photo diodes and IR sensors are used to sense vehicle moments. The control signals of sensors have been fed to microcontroller 8051. In the microcontroller the control logic is implemented to control lights based on vehicles and pedestrian moments with bright and dim mode of operation and to switch off lights during no vehicles and pedestrian. From the proposed method the overall energy being utilized now-a-days for lighting can be minimized. Moreover the automatic and intelligent control schemes are required to control the complex lighting system due to growth of cities and standard of living.
