“Lighting as an Application Platform”

There is a greater opportunity with LEDs that can alter the trajectory of virtually every person on the planet - a new lighting infrastructure called a Light Sensory Network.

Imagine embedding networking technology and sensors within LED luminaires themselves, and using it as the foundation to deliver new global applications and services such

as video security, parking management, and retail or location analytics. LED luminaires then become smart devices capable of capturing and transmitting sensory big data from

the surrounding environment; a huge opportunity for light owners to turn their luminaire into a strategic asset.

Speaker: Joel Vincent, Sensity Systems.

Topic: Best Practices for Parking Structures - Design & Business

Have you worked on a lighting project in a parking structure lately?  If not, it won’t be long!  In the competitive business of parking, facility owners and operators work continuously to differentiate their parking experience for patrons and communities – maintaining safe, convenient and welcoming environments - while delivering profit to their bottom line.  With lighting operated an average of 6500 hrs/year in >30,000 US parking structures, the business case for dramatically improving energy performance and lighting quality is very compelling.  Leave this IES luncheon with a clear understanding of the latest lighting design best-practice and energy code requirements for new construction and renovation projects.
