Smart Lighting Workshop

2021-10-19 @ 09:00 - 12:05

IEEE Smart Lighting Project Invitation


Artificial light absorbs 13-14% of the world’s electricity annual production. Today, we are witnessing a transition from the conventional “analogue” lighting technologies towards “digital” lighting. Smart lighting will become the backbone for smart cities and homes. The objective is switching to smart human-centric lighting driven by both “efficiency” and “quality of light”.

Next-generation Street lighting systems should provide the “Right Light” with the best efficiency and quality, when and where it is needed. This Workshop will highlight all the above-mentioned issues and will focus on the future of lighting systems and their contributions to the sustainable development of smart cities.
