Thiruvananthapuram: Streetlights that are switched on when there is strong ambient light, lights aglow in the dead of the night on rarely used stretches, faulty lights that are not replaced� the way our roads are lit leaves much to be desired. A group of students of the Electrical and Electronics course of the M.G. College of Engineering, Vandithadam, Thiruvallam, believe they may have a solution to the problems.
As part of a project, Visakh Dhar, G.G. Saran Kumar, R. Prasanth Nair, A.R. Sarath and V.G. Adarsh have designed an �Intelligent street lighting system which can provide �optimum lighting level for city streets. They were guided by faculty member Yamuna.
