Adaptive Controls & Simulations

Time resolved light field analysis and the multi-sensory fusion of information from several types of networked sensors, including time-of-flight and lighting color sensors, can be used to characterize the patterns of activity among occupants in a space to provide “smart” light, at the right time and in the right place.  Light sources and sensors integration driving future lighting system applications utilize novel architectures powered by new control algorithms that process networked sensor data to simultaneously optimize energy utilization and lighting system ergonomics – visual acuity, cognition, comfort and health. The Smart Lighting ERC is positioned to satisfy the unique challenges and explore the significant opportunities in the research and development of the new paradigm of advanced lighting enabled systems and services.
