Although "Intelligent lighting" has been known for some time and is becoming increasingly sophisticated, existing control systems are not human-centred and the lighting is not really "personalized". The PILCS project aims to develop the first fully user-centred, dynamic, personalized and intelligent lighting control system based on the vast scientific research and knowhow in the field of chronobiology, psychology, human centric lighting and human computer interaction.
- Novel Products: A state-of-the-art, compact and universal lighting control device; Software for intelligent and self-learning algorithms and models integration (used to translate users’ profile parameters into optimal lighting conditions) and drivers for hardware functionality and operating system; User-friendly interface for users’ data input (registration and logging).
- Prototypes: Lighting control module prototype for integration and testing, which will be used to create a detailed design package of the final product; Software prototypes consisting on Pre-alpha, Alpha, Beta version; User-Interface prototype (paper or interactive based screens).
- Demonstration and testing units: The intelligent lighting control module with the embedded software (including components listed above) controlled by a client and wirelessly connected to a LED luminaire for demonstration and tests.
- Scientific proof: The field study provides relevant insights in end-users’ experiences with the system, and validates its potential beneficial effects on office employees’ wellbeing and performance in everyday situations.
