Our Project

LED-Lux is a smart lighting system designed around the human circadian rhythm. The LEDs will cycle through different colors and temperatures of light according to what the body expects at that time of day. In hospitals, patients can go multiple days without direct sunlight. With LED-Lux implemented, the more natural light better regulates a patient’s circadian rhythm, giving them a more restful sleep and making them more alert while awake.
LED-Lux is designed to be scalable. The smart light system will be comprised of a node-mesh network of lights, where each light is connected together sending and receiving data from a hub. This allows the system to span the entire hospital, ensuring that everyone gets the more natural light. LED-Lux is fully customizable. A user-friendly web application will allow users to adjust the spectrum based on what light works best for them. The node-mesh network will also allow for entire floors to be controlled from a single gateway, allowing the web app to fully control each individual light.
LED-Lux is intelligent. Using Machine Vision, our system can detect and track humans as they move through a room, as well as  how you interact with other objects. By utilizing machine vision, we can make the room turn on without having you touch a button.
All designed to make life a little brighter.
