Automation Of Street Light System Using Qr Code To Avoid Wastage Of Electricity

Authors(5) :-Rakshith S, Sahana S, Shravya S, Vishnu Das K O, Suman Jayakumar

Automation, power consumption and cost efficiency are considered important in the present day to day life. In today’s world, streetlights are very much required in populated regions. Due to busy lifestyle of humans, switching operations on streetlights are not carried out on time, and a huge amount of electricity is being wasted. In the present system it is observed that streetlights are not turned OFF even when there is ample amount of light after sun rise and are turned ON even before sunset. This results in delay after sunset and wastage of energy in the morning as the operator needs time to cross from street to street. This paper eliminates the above problems and also provides additional feature like real time controlling. Every individual has access to smart phone and individual identity can be established by using Quick Response (QR) code. Hence we make an attempt to propose a system and its design where weautomate street lights using QR code in order to save electrical energy. In this paper we initially make a survey on various techniques used to automate and monitor street lights. We make an attempt to present what QR codes are and their application. Then we propose system design and finally we conclude by highlight the scope for further enhancement.
