Human-centric lighting should benefit users, but the practicality of this is no clear-cut process. Light affects human health and wellbeing in many ways, and needs/preferences vary according to time of day, task or company, and the pressing need to save energy. Building on the latest insights into new light sources, Internet of Things and how lighting impacts human functioning, the project takes an integrative approach to developing algorithms to infer and even predict user context to accommodate user needs and preferences as well as innovative lighting and new design methodologies that allow optical designs which promote optimal efficiency, higher optical quality and better utilization.
