Autonomous Street Light Simulator

StreetlightSim has been produced as part of Sei Ping Lau's, a member of my research team, PhD research project. The simulator is an open source streetlight simulation environment based on the well-known OMNet++ and SUMO tools. It features a customisable road traffic pattern, described by the road traffic distribution according to different times of day and annual average daily traffic flow (AADF), and can be easily extended to different streetlight networks using OpenStreetMap and JOSM.

StreetlightSim has been developed specifically to evaluate Autonomous and Adaptive Street Lighting Schemes. We have used it to evaluate the performance of various street lighting schemes based on an actual streetlight network in terms of their energy efficiency and utility to road users. You can find out more about the research by downloading our paper:

Dr Merrett presenting at the Times Cheltenham Science Fair
It was a great pleasure to have been invited to speak at the Times Cheltenham Science Festival 2013. I took part in a panel session exploring the background and future possibilities of Energy Harvesting with Dr Paul Mitcheson and heart surgeon Sukumaran Nair. In the presentation to a sold-out crowd of 100 members of the general public, I gave an overview of the motivation for energy harvesting, and spoke about some of our recent EPSRC funded research in the area. It was a very enjoyable experien... [more]

Research Featured in New Scientist

New Scientist Issue 2932
Our research into the use of smartphones to for biodiversity monitoring has been featured in New Scientist. The New Forest Cicada is the only cicada native to the UK and, having not been seen for many years, is at great danger of becoming extinct. One of my PhD students, Davide Zilli, is investigating whether or not the millions of annual visitors to the New Forest National Park can be turned into mobile biodiversity sensors, using the smartphones that they carry with them. "Biologists lik... [more]
