Abstract [en]

As the world of smart cities is expanding at an accelerated pace, companies need to understand and evaluate the opportunities that open up to them. The solar street light: FASCOM has been created by SIARQ to facilitate the transition from a city to a smart city. Its function is to provide energy and shelter to smart city devices on top of its basic illumination purpose. The first part of the thesis considers five examples to estimate the FASCOM position in the smart city environment. It unveils FASCOM’s ecosystem that has already been studied by a European project called the Humble Lamppost. It explains how additional value can be created by adding the Bluetooth technology inside the device and why the current Li-Fi technology should not be integrated into the device. The second part of the thesis helps SIARQ to determine which European Living Laboratory is most suitable to develop further its FASCOM in a real life environment. After grading the laboratories against aset of criteria, the Lighting Living Lab of Portugal has been selected as the most promising facility.

Abstract [sv]

I takt med att världens "smarta städer" växer allt snabbare är företag i behov av att förstå och värdera möjligheterna som blir tillgängliga för dem. De solcellsbestyckade gatulyktorna: FASCOM blev skapade av SIARQ för att förenkla förändringen av en stad till en "smart stad". Dess funktion är att förse den smarta stadens apparater med energi och ge dem skydd, utöver deras syfte att producera ljus. Tesens första del ser närmare på fem exempel på hur en uppskattar FASCOM:s position i den smarta stadsmiljön. Den synliggör FASCOM:s ekosystem som redan har blivit studerad inom ett Europeiskt projekt kallat "The Humble Lamppost" (Den Ödmjuka Lyktstolpen). Den förklarar hur värdet kan öka om man applicerar Bluetooth-teknologin inuti apparaten och varför den nuvarande Li-Fi-teknologin inte borde bli integrerad till apparaten.
