Successful Games, Wonderful City Lighting
——Description of the Whole-city Centralized Control System for Nightscape
Themed lighting in the 7th CISM Military World Games in Wuhan
To add luster to the Games, this outdoor lighting project in Wuhan focuses on three core areas, i.e., "two rivers & four banks, the green heart of the East Lake, and Wuhan Sports Center". There are 25 key routes connecting in series of major nodes such as the “one venue & three stations”, highlighted areas, and stadiums, forming the main structure of the whole city's outdoor lighting and creating a new impression of Wuhan as a night city. This construction covers 7 central urban areas, 3 functional areas, and 4 new urban areas in Wuhan. The construction philosophy is unified design, unified construction, and unified management.

East Lake: show the peace, elegance, and aestheticism of the oriental landscape painting focusing on mountains and waters in Chu Kingdom’s style and painting the East Lake.
Sports Center: It consists of a stadium, a gymnasium, and a swimming pool, and other ancillary buildings. It transmits peace to people of all ethnic groups in the world through sports events.
Routes of guarantee: the construction philosophy is based on 25 key guarantee routes, covering all the core construction areas in the latest Wuhan City
Master Pan (2017-2035), which not only forms the basic network for the successful hosting of the Games and the promotion of the city but also serves as a concentrated demonstration of Wuhan's urban construction and development achievements.
Let the light and shadow play, with intellectual control as its core.
Wuhan is the first city in China to adopt cloud platforms for centralized control of outdoor lighting on a citywide scale. As per the requirements of first-class domestic technical standards, Wuhan has carried out unified bidding and construction for network operators, cloud platforms, intelligent control systems, etc., and established unified technical standards and requirements to ensure the stability and advancement of the three core parts of the control systems.
The establishment of the Wuhan Centralized and Integrated Intelligent Management and Control Platform is the technical guarantee for the perfect show of Wuhan Light Show. As the main provider of lighting control systems and products for the 7th CISM Military World Games in Wuhan in 2019, Shenzhen EXC-LED Technology Co., Ltd. provides the EXC-ECCP2.0 Lighting Intelligent Cloud Control Platform for this project, which guarantees the nightscape lighting of Wuhan City in the whole process. This Wuhan outdoor lighting project uses the Internet of Things, Big Data, and Cloud Platform technology to build an intelligent lighting management and control platform with complete functions, efficient operation, flexible operation, strong expansibility, safety, and reliability.
The EXC-ECCP2.0 cloud control platform is an integrated comprehensive intelligent management and control platform that integrates weak current control, strong current control, laser performance, photoelectric glass media show, video monitoring, operation and maintenance management, etc. for city lights. The application of Wuhan integrated comprehensive intelligent management and control platform can effectively realize the visibility, controllability, and management of outdoor lighting in the whole of Wuhan City.
The Wuhan lighting project establishes a three-level (city, district, and building) control framework through control systems, operator’s networks, and cloud platform technology, thus forming effective management, control, operation, and maintenance mechanism and providing effective guarantee for stable operation of the project
Control system hardware
In this project, Shenzhen EXC-LED Technology Co., Ltd. not only provides Wuhan outdoor lighting intelligent management and control platform but also serves as the main provider of intelligent hardware equipment, providing most of the building-used strong and weak current intelligent control equipment for this project.
Intelligent weak current effect control equipment: the building-used intelligent weak current effect control equipment is the core part of the coordinated control system of the project. The control equipment provided in this project adopts a new generation of digital video processing technology, smart professional light control software with optimized algorithm model as its core, and real-time massive data processing technology, perfectly restores the color processing of video sources, and synchronously and smoothly reproduces perfect videos.
Strong current intelligent equipment: EXC-LED realizes the intelligent control of the strong current of the project by providing intelligent control modules, which can realize the functions of remote intelligent control, remote meter reading, mode setting (energy-saving mode, routine mode, theme mode), state detection, etc. and provide strong guarantee for the stable operation of the project
