2010 World Cities Summit Philips launches green road plan

Green road leading to a livable city

Expo has become one of the most popular search terms. "Better city, let life be better" is also deeply rooted in the people's heart with the hot discussion of the Expo. As the best practice area for cities that focus on this theme, it is attracting more and more attention from city managers, experts and companies. These cases have condensed the wonderful practices of countries in livable homes and sustainable urbanization. At present, when China formulated the "Twelfth Five-Year Plan", these exquisite ideas presented in front of us also made people look forward to the future of China's urban development during the "Twelfth Five-Year Plan" period.

Not long ago, the 2010 World Cities Summit (WCS) was held in Singapore. The theme of the summit was “Living and Sustainable Future Cities”, which shows the solutions for today's cities facing increasingly pressing urban issues. How to improve the city's livability index and achieve sustainable urban development has also become the focus of the city planners participating in the summit. The livability index not only represents the harmony between the city and the people, but also represents the space for sustainable development between the city and the environment. In the livable city index published at the World Cities Summit, the new index is evaluated in 135 indicators in five categories. Environmental protection and sustainability, economy, domestic security and stability, quality of life and national governance capacity are both appropriate. The top five assessment categories for the city index.

To improve the environmental and sustainability index, the first thing that needs improvement is the tight energy supply and demand situation. Data shows that urban life consumes 70% of the world's energy, and 15% of it consumes road lighting. Therefore, helping city planners to reduce the energy consumption of urban road lighting, reduce environmental pollution and improve the livability of the city has become the direction for lighting enterprises to carry out technological innovation and improve lighting solutions. To this end, as a global lighting industry leader, Philips has proposed a "green road" plan, promoting road lighting should save energy and reduce emissions, leading sustainable development; safety and comfort, improve the quality of life; longevity and security, look to the future development, and As the three pillars of the "green road" concept. This concept, pioneered by Philips Lighting, has been fully implemented in China and has been highly recognized by municipal construction and planning companies.

At the summit, Philips also officially launched the EssentialLine series of road lighting solutions. This new LED road lighting product will provide a better choice for urban planners to upgrade their roads with high efficiency and environmental protection. It also marks the beginning of the introduction of the livability index by Philips Lighting in promoting the construction of “green roads”. A new era of market pointing.

Sustainable and livable city

"If the last century is regarded as an era of globalization, this century will become an era of global urban integration. The rise of Asian cities reflects a state of equilibrium in the global economy from the West to the East. In this context, Small and medium-sized cities will become larger and larger, and large cities will be transformed into super-regions,” said Zhong Dexuan, vice chairman of the World Cities Summit Working Committee and director of the Industrial Development and Investment Promotion Association of Singapore. A century ago, only 10% of the world's population lived in cities. By the beginning of the 21st century, this proportion had increased to more than 50%, and by the middle of this century it would reach 75%. In Asia, a United Nations study showed that in 2008, 45% of the population in Southeast Asian countries lived in urban areas. By 2030, this ratio is expected to reach 56.5%. At present, China is carrying out the largest urbanization movement in history. In 2008, China's urbanization rate reached 45.68%, and the city reached 655. Rapid economic growth and energy consumption have brought a series of new environmental problems to urban construction planners, putting more pressure on energy and the environment. These changes will also place a heavier load on infrastructure, including outdoor lighting.

How to make the city grow and develop, not to cause damage to the environment, and reduce the consumption of energy and resources to achieve a harmonious symbiosis between the city and the environment? The programmatic document in the history of modern urban planning, the New Charter of Athens, has proposed sustainable development and quality of life as the basic objectives of urban planning. This is also the core theme of Philips' City.People.Light (City. Residents. Lighting, CPL for short) concept. In the 1990s, Philips pioneered a series of research, and the idea of ​​a creative leader gathered around the world to form the entire set of CPL concepts and methodology. This is a highly integrated concept and methodology that breaks through existing knowledge and technology frameworks and looks to the future. By centralizing the views of all parties in urban development planning, it combines urban, human and lighting technologies and uses advanced lighting solutions. Make people's urban experience more abundant and convenient, and further improve the city's livability index. Since 2009, Philips has launched a series of seminars in China that focus on the CPL concept, making this concept of combining technology and human care a deep inspiration for the planning and construction of more Chinese cities.

A harmonious and harmonious city is one of the three themes of Philips CPL. Under this theme, Philips advocates that the city should be people-oriented and pursue sustainable development. While lighting meets the basic functions of people's living, work, health and safety, it is necessary to create more places where people and cities and people can communicate with each other. It also needs to bring a sense of belonging and pride to the urban residents. Buildings and roads form the surface texture of the city. With various means of transportation and access, people realize free flow in different regions and spaces. At night, the lights naturally become the baton of people and traffic, arranging the parallel between the pedestrians and the drivers.

A Battery Charger supplies current to the base plate. Once the AGV is in charging position and the collector has made contact with the base plate, the AGV computer turns on the current.

The base plate has chamfered entry/exit ramps to facilitate smooth drive-on/drive-off of the spring loaded collector.

A battery charging contact consists of a base plate, which is installed on the floor or laterally at a bracket adjacent of the AGV runway, and a current collector which is installed on the vehicle.


Battery charging stations may be installed anywhere within the system where the production process allows the AGV to stop (staging areas, turn arounds, loading stops etc.).
