The IoT & Connected Lighting Forum and the Light & Health Forum headline the LIGHTFAIR International lineup, exploring the potential for future connected lighting systems and the non-visual effects of light on humans. Both will take place on May 22. LIGHTFAIR International Conference is set for May 19-23 at the Philadelphia Convention Center. The Pre-Conference LIGHTFAIR Institute is May 19-20 and the Trade Show & Conference are May 21-23.
The IoT & Connected Lighting Forum addresses connected lighting through a suggested design guide and a field study examining creation of reliable IT networks through smart lighting infrastructure, and using visible light through LiFi to carry data and information. It also addresses smart streetlights and master-planned connected cities. As the replacement of today’s lighting infrastructure with LED products offers the potential for future connected lighting systems, each luminaire becomes a point of intelligence that can share information on occupancy, activity patterns, changes in temperature or humidity and daylight levels, as well as integrating wireless communications into the lighting system.
The Light & Health Forum, which explores the non-visual effects of light on humans, returns with new courses including addressing whether the cones play a larger role in circadian response; optimizing human physiology through tunable lighting and whether tunable lighting for health is a fad or the future of lighting design; some new recommendations for circadian entrainment and addressing the WELL building standard provisions using daylighting and controls. The forum culminates with in an exploration of the non- visual effects of lighting for educational facilities.
