Street light project main goal was to get people to enjoy the public places, to use the street for more then just a rode and to spend time in the public places. the street light, using human gestures trying to lead the people around to sit on the bench.
we used webcam detector (AS2) that sending the data to an AS3 code that process the data and send it to the arduino which moves the flashlight. The flashlight is moving with two stepper motors one to each axis, the steppers connected to potentiometers that is pointing all the time on the exact place. Also, we have another arduino responsible on the servo which is moving the dimmer.(2010)
