First national smart lamp pole standard released

Updated: 2021-12-13

Recently, the national standard "Smart Multi-Functional Pole Service Function and Operation Management Specification" GB/T 40994-2021, which was compiled by the Beijing E-Town Smart City Collaborative Innovation Research Institute, was released. 

China's first national standard for the smart lamp pole industry will be formally implemented on March 1 next year, which means that experience gained in the construction of smart lamp poles in the Beijing Economic-Technological Development Area (BDA) will be exported to the whole country.

The BDA has been building smart lamp poles since 2016. 

Road lamps, monitoring probes, communication micro base stations, Wi-Fi transmitters and other devices are installed in the light poles to integrate multiple functions.

With the construction of the world’s first cloud-based networked control high-level autonomous driving demonstration zone in the BDA, smart light poles are now part of roadside facilities that will help form vehicle-road synergy with autonomous driving companies. 

Bayonet cameras, lidar, millimeter wave radar, roadside RSUs and other devices are installed in the newly-built light poles at 28 intersections along a route stretching 10 kilometers to realize the construction of vehicle-road coordination infrastructure and build a basic environment for the testing and operation of L4 autonomous driving vehicles.
