With new, even more open and energy efficient network options, I wonder what kind of beyond added value features or services we will see this year? With all that data collected, there must be something we can do with it? How can we help these self-driven cars to become safer? Or in a parking garage, how can lighting help guide the drivers to their pre-paid parking spot? Once in the office can the ambient light follow daylight colors to maximise my circadian rhythm? I sure wish I already had that installed in my office, so I could simulate a nice energizing sunny day to finish my blog article before 5PM on this rainy Friday afternoon.
I’m totally excited about Lightfair. Yes, I know it’s ironic how at one point in time, I said that I didn’t care about lighting, I’m just an EE electronic geek that happens to be sitting in an office at lighting company. You know that photon won’t change, there’s not much to innovate here. But these days are long gone, and I’m proud to say, “I AM A LIGHTING GEEK!”
I can’t wait to read what you have to say on new trends and techy stuff or to chat with all of you at #LFI2018! So much to discuss when we think about the future of lighting, smart poles, LIFI, plug and play network system for offices, Smart City sensors enabled by new IoT platforms such as the SR (sensor ready) platform.
I’ll be at the Philips Lighting booth #1402, looking forward to connecting on these topics or what ever else lighting means to you. See you there.
