My recent visit to Light & Build Frankfurt, confirmed my assumptions with regards to the direction our industry is moving and more specifically to the direction/evolution of luminaire design and development.

Fuelled by the Internet of Things ( IoT ) and Smart Buildings, luminaires are evolving into efficient, intelligent, adaptable interconnected devices, that have the potential to far exceed their original (primary) role, of providing light to a specified level.

This article identifies the potential, cross-industry partnership has to further innovation within the lighting industry, contributing to smarter buildings and ultimately sustainable environments that respond to an individual occupants preference.
