Abstract

Street lighting is currently a growing market that is adapting to and benefiting from numerous technological developments. This dissertation maps the technological factors that will contribute to the future of road lighting in order to aid professionals working in the field, such as lighting designers and engineers. Therefore, this dissertation makes a contribution to knowledge in this area by developing a framework tool (Figure 41. SLSNF - developed on draw.io) to assist stakeholders seeking to implement a new street lighting system. This is based on insights gathered through mixed methods of research from a varied group of professionals associated with street lighting. Furthermore, it also establishes a summarising model (Figure 49. Road lighting and associated factors overview, developed by Ajay Parmar, using www.mindmeister.com) to illustrate all of the considerations surrounding road lighting as a domain. One of the primary focuses of this research targets how lighting professionals interact with lighting standards. Data is collected by mixed methods research of both interviews and a questionnaire. This research confirms that good collaboration amongst a range of different professionals is required for new street lighting projects to develop efficiently. Due to the interdisciplinary nature of these projects, the proposed tool (Figure 41. SLSNF - developed on draw.io), which has been developed as a result of the data collected, will assist those involved to identify and mitigate any possible oversights in a street lighting installation at an early stage.
