Facilities Operations and Development recently partnered with five Ohio State students on their 15-week EEDS (Environment, Economics, Development and Sustainability) Capstone project. The students created a multi-purpose Smart Street Light, designed to assist with security and sustainability. The light was engineered with sensors to detect three different types of data.
