On 14 November 2017, the Intelligent Lighting Institute (ILI) of Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) organises the 2017 edition of its annual public outreach event. During this event we highlight recent developments in responsible research & innovation in science & technology in light & intelligent lightingand its applications in, for instance, health & well-being.

During the event the audience will also be able to get better informed about recentcurrent, and upcoming research & innovation projects carried out by researchers related to ILI by means of a series of poster presentations.

Program (tentative)

Registration with coffee/tea in Building MetaForum, Floor 4, Lounge

Opening & Welcome
by prof. dr. I.E.J. (IngridHeynderickx, scientific director of ILI

Presentation on “Atlas building and other Living Labs” program by dr. P.R. (PhilipRoss and dr. P.H. (Elkeden Ouden

Presentation on “Sound Lighting” research program
by prof. dr. Y.A.W. (Yvonnede Kort, program manager and prof. dr. ir. J.P.M.G. (Jean-PaulLinnartz

Invited talk entitled “The biology of non-visual effects of light
by prof. R. (RobLucas of University of Manchester

“It is now well established that the mammalian retina contains 3 types of photoreceptor: long appreciated rods and cones and more recently discovered intrinsically photosensitive retinal ganglion cells (ipRGCs). ipRGCs were first identified in attempts to understand how circadian rhythms are reset to external time and they are now known to drive an array of ‘non-visual’ responses to light that together adjust behaviour and physiology to the varying demands of the 24hr day. I will aim to give a brief overview of the discovery of ipRGCs and of their key features before turning to the ways in which an understanding of this biology can be applied to lighting design.”

Poster Pitches by Researchers of ILI

Lunch and Poster Presentations

Presentation on “Bright Environments” research program by dr. T. (TanırÖzçelebi, program manager

Invited talk entitled “Open architectures for IoT based Lighting” by Mr. J. (JohnSayer M.Eng. of Johnson Controls

OpenAIS is a European innovation project to insert Intenet-of-Things into lighting and present an open architecture to give the European lighting industry a headstart by studying and solving the hardest parts. Work continues towards a real life pilot installation in Eindhoven, in De Witte Dame. Along with TU/e, Johnson Controls and the other OpenAIS partners will report back next summer on the success of the pilot and the possible impacts on the industry. OpenAIS needs to solve SynchronicityScaleabilityGroup ControlSecurity and Interoperability and make wired and wireless work seamlessly together. The richness of data and control using Apps and BIM modelling will help save time and money and expand innovation opportunities across the total supply chain and project lifecycle. The worlds of Lighting Management, Building Management and IT are colliding and business models are under threat. Looking today at what could be done by a BMS or LMS or both emphasizes the choices and opportunities for innovators that will be enabled by the OpenAIS architecture. Technical and business models can be reinvented. Expanding the controlled lighting market will be a great benefit to suppliers and consumers.”

Presentation on “Light by Design” research program by dr. J.H.M. (Janten Thije Boonkkamp, program manager

Invited talk entitled “(R-)evolutions in Optical Design” by dr. M.C.J.M. (GillesVissenberg of Philips Lighting
“Illumination optics is a multidisciplinary effort: a good optical engineer should understand the language of physics, mathematics, computer science, materials science, process engineering, psychology, physiology, marketing, design, lighting standards and regulations. The transition to LED lighting changed the rules of optical design in most of these aspects. These changes will be illustrated with optical designs of office lighting luminaires. In particular the impact of LED-based luminaire designs on discomfort glare perception and glare standards will be addressed.”






What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
TU/e is very conveniently reachable via public transport and is located less than 10 minutes walking from Eindhoven Central Station. TU/e is also conveniently reachable by car. When you come by car, please park at a parking facility close to Building MetaForum and please note that TU/e has paid parking. Detailed information on how to get to TU/e Science Park, on how to get to the specific location on TU/e Science Park and on what specific road detour measures need to be taken into account is is available via our site.
