In recent years, the role of street lighting has changed dramatically. Currently, street lighting is used not only to ensure the safety and comfort of citizens in a city, but also to make public spaces more attractive to pedestrians, cyclists, used cars, motorcycles, taxis and public transport, contributing to a more sustainable urban and rural future. On the other hand, public lighting is constantly increasing and polluting the environment (light pollution) as well as fauna. Yet, for some years now, the current QoS regulations oblige to sift the light, to use different methods and technologies to reduce the overexposure due to the light pollution as well as the energy consumption for a better comfort as the use of the sensors movements, automating lighting and other methods. The aim of this article is to show you how our proposed mathematical lighting model based on OFDM technique and our self-lighting concept, can reduce substantially the energy consumption. We propose to show our combined scheme and a complete study of energy gain calculation when pedestrian or vehicles detections are occurred in multispeed detections scenarios.
