Some of them will come with flooding detection devices, while others wil be equipped with IoT sensors, monitoring devices, IP cameras, micro weather stations, traffic lights or power charging piles for electric vehicles (EV).

Deltal said that since 2010 it has installed LED streetlamps and smart ones in six metropolitan areas in Taiwan and undertaken LED street lighting projects in Australia, the UK, the Netherlands, Thailand, Vietnam and Indonesia, with more than 800,000 LED streetlamps cumulatively installed globally.
