The first technology for development will be efficient intelligent lighting towards smart grid integration. The intelligent lighting solution shall be composed of high voltage dimmable LEDs that have the intelligence to adjust luminescence in relation to ambient light and human body presence.
The solution will have user-friendly preset conditioning via remote controller or internet. The smart grid platform for the intelligent lighting integration will be Lonworks by Echelon Technologies. Lonworks is a mature network that can be used for home are networks (HAN), building energy management and automation. The Lonworks platform provides a flexible technology that can be expanded as the needs of smart grid expand and can be used with other protocols, such as Zigbee.
