Human Centric Lighting as a Real-Life Example of Smart Lighting

There are various fields of life where smart lighting can provide benefits. Some of the well-known areas are energy savings, security, ambient settings, and remote access via wired or wireless networks. There are also some less visible, or less known aspects of smart lighting, such as human-centric lighting, and this Webinar talks about this application and one possible implementation provided by Infineon and EBV.

Overview

This webinar will be broadcasted at 10 am New York, 7 am Los Angeles, 4 pm Berlin.

There are various fields of life where smart lighting can provide benefits. Some of the well-known areas are energy savings, security, ambient settings, and remote access via wired or wireless networks. There are also some less visible, or less known aspects of smart lighting, such as human-centric lighting, intelligent maintenance (for example: failure prediction, constant lumen over time, etc.), but also communication over visible light which can provide data throughput, much faster than conventional wireless data transfer options.

This presentation covers the fundamentals of human-centric lighting, its motivation and benefits, as well as technology required to realize a human-centric lighting system. In particular, this presentation will explain one typical use case and an implementation using XMC Industrial Microcontroller and OptiMOS MOSFETs from Infineon, as well as 5630 LEDs LM561B+ from Samsung and CY8CKIT-142 PSoC 4 BLE modules from Cypress, supplied by EBV. Discussion will also include an overview of current HCL research findings, including studies commissioned by Germany's ZVEI German Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers Assoc. and A.T. Kearney for LightingEurope.

Attendees will also learn the value of the software in these types of system, as well as benefits of DAVE™ IDE and DAVE™ Apps in realizing software for human-centric lighting.

Key Takeaways

  • Learn the potential of smart-lighting systems and its potential role in smart cities of future
  • Get an overview of benefits of human-centric lighting
  • Find out how to implement a human-centric lighting system using XMC microcontrollers and other components provided by Infineon and EBV
