Today, a large amount of energy is wasted on continuously lighting street lights. In this paper, a scheme has been proposed to automatically switch on street lights only during the presenceof vehicles and pedestrians, using an Arduino-based wirelesssignal in order to minimize both energy consumption and maintenance need.
