TCS Creates Solution that cuts energy consumption using self-learning algorithms

Country's largest software exporter TCS has said it has created a solution that will cut payback on expensive LED lights by half. The software, which comes amid a greater thrust on Smart Cities, cuts energy consumption using self-learning algorithms and will reduce the typical 4-5 year payback on the lights to just 2-3 years, the Tata group company said in a statement. The intelligent urban exchange (IUX) for adaptive streetlight optimization will also enable cities to jump start smart city projects in other domains, such as water and transportation, by leveraging smart streetlight WAN and a common data analytics platform, it said. The statement said streetlights account for up to 50% of a city's energy budget and claimed Co. solution which is designed for both LED and conventional lighting, acts as an "energy advisor" for policymakers.
