In 2013, UC Santa Barbara partnered with the SPEED team to demonstrate network controlled LED lighting for streetlights and post-top fixtures. These exterior fixtures were purchased with dimming power supplies and equipped with radio frequency (RF) control modules. The post-top fixtures were also equipped with occupancy sensors. These lighting controls allowed all the units to be incorporated into an adaptive mesh network control system that optimized the fixtures’ energy efficiency and gave the campus unprecedented control of its lighting.
