Eindhoven, the “City of Light” of the North, is the birthplace of the Philips Group and has played a key role in the development of the company’s major inventions. Known as the Dutch Silicon Valley, Eindhoven is a testing ground for experimentation in both the arts (such as the Light-S program) and technology, and was named the most innovative city of 2013 by Forbes magazine. Eindhoven’s municipal government has given great thought to the future of light and the role of urban public lighting.

Eindhoven’s lighting is friendlier to the environment, but it’s also smarter and more fun. Eindhoven’s new lighting system detects activity by vehicles and pedestrians using sensors and wireless technology.
