TOMSK, May 20 – RIA Tomsk. Creation of the first in Tomsk system of intelligent lighting on the Vershinin, Usov and Lytkina streets will be the subject of negotiations between the regional authorities and Philips in June; sodium lamps to be replaced with modern ones changing color temperature and light intensity, the vice governor Evgeny Parshuto told RIA Tomsk.

According to Parshuto, in June 2019, within the framework of the Council of Chief Architects of the Subjects of the Russian Federation, the authorities of the region will negotiate with representatives of the Philips company, who will be invited to participate in the creation of modern street lighting and illumination of the city’s buildings.

"This is what Philips is famous for in the world, and Tomsk could become a “pilot”. It (Philips) worked in parts of individual backlights in Yekaterinburg and in Moscow. This is a huge company, and the interaction with it will require enormous efforts, and resources ... In the project (for streets) Vershinin, Usov, Lytkin a system of intelligent lighting should appear - we will talk about this", – the deputy governor said.

The system’s intelligence, he explained, implies an automatic change in color temperature and light intensity, which is impossible to achieve using sodium lamps common in Tomsk. The project will require the replacement of lamps, supports for them and the control system. The idea to make “smart” lighting in Tomsk appeared in 2016 after the visit of the delegation of the region to the Netherlands.

"Experts told us in the Netherlands that even the crime rate drops sharply from the intelligent lighting system. Where some mass events take place, the system increases the power of lighting and people don’t even have the desire to commit illegal actions. And vice versa (if) there is not a single person on the street, everything just turns off", – Parshuto noted.

Earlier it was reported that the streets of Vershinin, Usov and Lytkina, where student dormitories are located, are the pilot platform for creating a creative urban space, which is being developed by the "Living Laboratory" project participants. In 2019, they proposed to equip 1.5 kilometers of cycle paths on Usov and basic lighting for pedestrians – lamps mounted in the sidewalk.
