In Hampshire, the street lights tell the local authority when to salt the roads in winter. In Helsinki, they’ll find you a parking space. In Atlanta Airport, lights can track wheelchairs and other equipment, and in Singapore, the lights guide customers to bargains in a shopping mall.
Lighting is changing. Thanks to digital technology, it’s moving beyond illumination and creating exciting possibilities that were undreamt of a few years ago.
This revolution is transforming light fittings into smart devices which can monitor and control our environment. The lighting in our buildings and cities is set to form the backbone of a digital network which can engage and inform on an unprecedented scale.
To help get a grip on these bewildering possibilities, LuxLive 2017 – Europe’s largest annual lighting event – is bringing together the exerts and the technology at ExCeL London on 15-16 November.
There, visitors can experience the digital future of lighting for themselves.
A new for addition to LuxLive 2017 is the Smart Spaces Conference, powered by Holophane, which focuses on connected outdoor lighting. This special programme is open to engineers and advisors, owners and operators of large lighting estates. On Wednesday the focus of Smart Spaces will be on lighting the public realm, campuses and car parks whilst on Thursday, the sessions will be looking at issues relating to infrastructure, rail and transport. It is essential that you reserve your place at Smart Spaces and in doing so, you will automatically be registered to visit LuxLive.
On the exhibition floor, in the accompanying Smart Spaces Campus you’ll see sophisticated lighting systems with advanced features such as environment monitoring, asset management, parking information, lamp and ballast failure reporting and integration with third party systems and software.
At the heart of the show is the Gooee IoT Arena. This centrepiece stage and technology zone is where the digital future of lighting comes to life. Demonstrations, presentations, discussions and break-out talks will focus on connected lighting and the exciting possibilities it’s opening up to engage occupants and control our world.
At a time of heightened concern about building safety, the Escape Zone will focus on emergency lighting requirements and standards. Here you’ll learn how to do a risk assessment, best practice procedures, the latest innovations and how to ensure you installation is compliant with the regulations.
All this and more and best of all, LuxLive is FREE! Register for your free place at www.luxlive.co.uk and keep your finger on the pulse of this fast-moving industry.
