Street Lighting & Cabling Detection - The Startup Challenge by Iberdrola
Iberdrola Group has launched the Startup Challenge Street Lighting & Cabling Detection, an international call for companies to present solutions that autonomously detect and validate public lighting points and cabling that are not recorded in the company’s database.

In some cases, even before a new allotment, light bulbs are already installed without being registered in the Iberdrola Database. Likewise, telephone and pay-TV cables from telecom operators are installed by default on the distributor's posts without the distributor receiving the appropriate sharing fees. This situation is especially recurrent in Brazil within the states of Sao Paulo, Mato Grosso do Sul, Bahia, Pernambuco, and Rio Grande do Norte.

Therefore, Iberdrola is looking for solutions to help update the database regularly and quickly by means of computer software, in order to improve infrastructure maintenance and reduce network energy losses. For example, via proposals that autonomously detect public lighting points and validates them using technologies such as deep learning, e.g. geotagging, object detection (CNNs), and more.
