ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the high-tech innovation project run by the universities of Bath, Surrey and Bristol, in England. The latest start-up of the project is Cplx, an electronic company, which is developing an infrared sensor-based chip for managing street-lighting. Surendra Kaushik, chief executive officer of Cplx, has been provided with a trial site. According to Kaushik, power consumption by seven million streetlights in Great Britain will be reduced to almost 50 percent.
