Inkers Deploys AI Solution on Street Lights, Cuts Power Consumption by 50 Per Cent


The smart lighting system classifies moving objects and adjusts the intensity of the light to optimise the energy usage


 Bangalore-based AI startup, Inkers, added a new feather to its cap with the successful deployment of an Artificial Intelligence (AI)-powered solution for Hynetic smart street lights.

The system integrated into the Hynetic products is an AI-powered highway lighting system that works in real time. It can access and monitor key data from the street lights, providing necessary insights about the light’s environment.

The system, on real-time basis, classifies moving objects like humans, vehicles, animals  and adjusts the intensity of the light either by increasing or decreasing it to optimise the energy usage.

The lighting automatically dials down the brightness when no one is around and restores radiance upon detecting the presence of oncoming activity.

According to the company, the smart lighting system helps reduce electricity consumption by upto 50-60 per cent and save crores.

Intelligent energy management solution

Speaking on the collaboration, Manish Giri, Co-Founder, Inkers Technology, said, “Inkers Technology is excited about the use of its nextgen edge computing device running vision AI solutions. This enables us for unprecedented technology integration with varied use cases like smart campuses, smart lights, facial recognition to name a few.”

“We hope to enable Hynetic with our technology to address growing need globally for an intelligent energy management solution. We are also looking to explore further avenues to use the unique technology in the fields of retail and security going forward,” he added.

Founded by IIT alumni Rohan Shravan and Manish Giri, Inkers designs and develops deep large-scale AI and ML vision solutions for enterprises, retail and defense & security organizations.

Shashank Donthi– Principal Architect, Technology Development, Hynetic, commented, “This collaboration allows for Hynetic and Inkers to explore new avenues that are ripe for adopting AI, and also helps put Indian technology on the global playing field. The biggest challenge for adoption of new technologies is the high cost of development and execution. By leveraging on each other’s expertise, the collaborative growth models help bring costs down and reduce time to market of next gen tech.”
