Today the IOT enables a two-way dialogue between lighting appliances, sensors, and control systems.
Within the framework of a broader research and collaboration programme implemented with the Padua University, Artemide develops with the spin-off LightCube an active illuminance and colour temperature retroaction system that works through wireless communication among IOT-ready products.
The system is capable to record and integrate environmental changes in order to preserve a dynamic balance versus pre-set targets.
The opportunity to initiate a non-univocal dialogue does not result into simple control but rather into on-going sharing of information between the lighting appliance and its surroundings, on which outside actions can be performed to change the baseline parameters and the system’s balance.
Natural and ambient phenomena can interact with artifi cial light according to measured parameters.
