Swarm intelligence

Artificial intelligence revolutionises workplace lighting

Imagine walking through a building and everywhere you go along the lights turn on by themselves, show you the way and then go out again by themselves. Magic? Dreams of the future? Neither.

In the lighting sector, there are currently trend-setting developments that rely on autonomously acting luminaires with swarm intelligence. The realisation is easier than expected, because control is via mesh networks - a technology that can already be used everywhere with modern WLAN routers or Bluetooth. More about the future of light, what a mesh network is and can do is reported in the current trend paper.
