Light Energy – Efficient and Safe Traffic Environments

 
 
 
 

Objectives

• Increase energy-efficiency of outdoor lighting by providing
  criteria for smart lighting systems, taking into account
  visibility, traffic situation, safety and environmental and
  economic aspects

• Provide a holistic approach for optimising factors
  contributing to energy-efficient, safe and user-optimised
  better quality visual environments and lighting and traffic
  services for road users

• Provide international scientific basis for using mesopic
  photometry in dimensioning, design and measurement of
  outdoor lighting and in constructing traffic infrastructure

• Develop novel concepts and prototypes for low-energy
  sensor-based outdoor lighting

• Based on Living Lab, address user experience of outdoor
  lighting conditions

• Increase the educational expertise at Aalto on efficient
  and sustainable traffic infrastructure
