Intelligent Lighting Lab

ILL - the Intelligent Lighting Laboratory - is working to develop lighting systems which are human-centric with a focus on the user experience and human well-being. ILL forms a part of a multidisciplinary platform for research focusing on Solid State Lighting (SSL), Visible Light Communications (VLC), Spectral Imaging and Micro and Nano Device fabrication.

The ILL will be able to serve as a full-scale lighting laboratory with facilities for photometric characterization of luminaires, spectral measurement of illumination, a light profiling system, a closed-loop controller for lights with wireless control, spectral Imaging and a VLC test bench.

The ILL is equipped with the state-of-the-art equipment such as spectrophotometers, integrating spheres, light booths, spectral imaging equipment, multi-spectral camera, tunable light sources, wirelessly controlled lighting systems, clean room fabrication facility and a VLC test setup.
