LED Adaptive Lighting and the Smart Grid

The term intelligent transportation system (ITS) describes the process of adding control, monitoring and communications technology to transportation infrastructure and vehicles to improve safety, reduce energy consumption and to reduce vehicle wear and transportation time. Development and application of ITS technology is also driven by the need for homeland security. Many of the proposed ITS systems also involve surveillance of the roadways, which is a priority of homeland security. Additionally, through coordination with the US Department of Energy, many ITS applications are also supported, enhanced and on occasion driven by the needs of the Smart Grid electrical distribution technologies
