Philips CityTouch developed by Philips is a software-based management and control dashboard that can be accessed from anywhere in the world through a secure login.

This is an asset management app for street lights that offers map-based visualization and simple charts and diagrams enhanced with a mobile phone technology.

The plug and play connected lighting solution removes the need for a branded local control system based on radio frequency or power line communication.

These LEDs combined with the Philips CityTouch deliver up to 70 percent savings in energy and costs by enabling city councils to remotely manage street lights, gain exact data on energy usage and automatic failure notifications.

The event will also demonstrate EV charging infrastructure developed by Schneider Electric.

This is a comprehensive hardware and software solution connected by AirVantage Cloud and an AirLink programmable gateway with secure cellular connectivity.

Using the remote monitoring and control capabilities enabled by AirVantage, Schneider Electric and its customers can manage various charging stations at different places from a central location.

The remote diagnosis can also be enabled without sending personnel on-site and enhanced uptime at optimized maintenance costs.
