The Future of Roadway Lighting

In this article, the authors discuss the future of roadway lighting, which offers significant safety benefit but also represents a large share of the operating budgets of agencies responsible for maintaining lighting infrastructure. Adaptive lighting, in which the light output of a system adjusts as traffic conditions change, is a growing trend. The authors describe how adaptive lighting may be implemented while maintaining road user safety. The work of two agencies that are deploying adaptive technology is detailed.
