In the modern era of smart cities, devices are becoming much smarter, smaller, and energy-efficient. Modern devices are able to communicate and process with the adaptation of Internet of Things. Despite breakthrough in technologies, a majority of the power generated is utilized for outdoor illumination. Existing smart outdoor illumination methods are self-actuated by the onboard sensors in the luminaire leading to power savings. Investigation reveals the need of efficient illumination through the smart collaboration among luminaires. A centralized outdoor illuminating role assignment scheme is proposed to address the collaborative illumination between the heterogeneous luminaires. Simulations and comparisons were carried out on the proposed centralized scheme with the legacy approach and the self-actuated ZB-OLC assignment scheme. The paper concludes with the comparative analysis and simulation results of the effect of role assignment on various types of luminaires, overall power consumption and lifetime analysis of the luminaires with perspective to zones, duration, and neighboring luminaires.
