Leveraging User-Centric Intelligent Daylight and Electric Lighting for Energy Saving

The increase of automation in buildings in order to diminish electric lighting (EL) and increase daylight (DL) exposure for health, comfort and energy saving purposes suffers from negative user perception. The proposed project aims at studying the potential of a purposeful interplay between a user-centric interface design and an intelligent daylight and electric lighting control, in order to optimize comfort, promote its user acceptance and, in definitive, save electric energy.
