Classroom Lighting as Study/Show

At the School of Engineering in Jönköping (JTH), an existing classroom will be refurbished and equipped with modern, flexible lighting and sensory systems to facilitate both a good learning environment for (lighting) students and simultaneously provide a research testbed for various study types. This project focuses on designing, installing, testing, and evaluating a testbed, including a pilot research study. It enables field study opportunities that can improve and translate laboratory findings into the real world. The use of IoT-based digital systems combined with user interaction enables studying different levels of data exchange and providing input for new knowledge-intensive building/lighting products.

The project started November 1st, 2022 and will run until December 31st, 2024.
