In many countries, in particular, third world countries. The common issue is the energy issue and how to save it. That`s why smart systems considered now primary for life requirements.

This research work aims to solve the energy saving problem. We prepared a street model that contains several lampposts on both sides of the street, we placed three IR sensors between the lampposts alongside the street. The IR sensors are connected to the controller (in this work we used Arduino UNO). The controller takes the signal from the IR sensor, then it sends the command to the lamppost to turn on or off. Depending on the Number of cars passed (we took a sample of a number of cars that passed on an actual street) and through some formulas we calculated the power consumed by the lampposts in two cases, the first case is when the lights is always on. And the second case is when the Smart system applied. The results showed that the proposed smart lighting system is efficient and reliable in saving energy.
