What If We Thought of a Lighting System as a Teammate?

22 June 2023 | 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT

« All Events

Have you ever thought of your phone or watch as a teammate? What about a lighting system? Or are you more apt to think of lighting controls as a foe? This presentation will explore how we can think about interaction between humans and lighting systems through the lens of human-machine teaming. Human-machine teaming research can serve as a useful guide for design and improved interaction with lighting systems. Join a human factors psychologist, lighting researcher, and lighting designer to consider how thinking of a lighting system as a teammate may change the way we design now and in the future.

The Illuminating Engineering Society (IES), in collaboration with Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), is pleased to offer a special, five-part, free webinar series on “Big Questions” in the lighting industry today. Advanced lighting systems can provide improved occupant health and productivity, better control, increased use of data, all with more sustainable product design. At the same time, new capabilities raise a host of questions with significant energy and environmental implications. Lighting researchers tackle big questions, and this webinar series will share the latest perspectives from PNNL experts and partners in pursuit of the best answers.
