OpenAIS - integrating lighting into the Internet of Things

ESI contributed to OpenAIS with a virtual prototyping approach supporting development and validation of the next generation architectures of connected lighting systems.
Furthermore, ESI developed an effective digital-twin-based root cause analysis approach for open connected lighting architectures. Both were successfully demonstrated in the OpenAIS pilot system, which was installed and put into operation begin 2018 in the industrial heritage ‘White Lady’ building in Eindhoven.

OpenAIS White Lady

The EU-Horizon 2020 co-funded OpenAIS project, that successfully brought open IPv6-based control to the lighting world, has been completed as planned. A consortium of seven leading companies in lighting, IoT and building management and two knowledge institutes worked closely together for 3.5 years on IP-to-the-end-node connected lighting for professional buildings.

The architecture showed its great potential by serving a fully featured, full-scale office lighting installation with four hundred luminaires and embedded sensors in an independent environment. The pilot demonstrated that a mix of wired (PoE) and wireless (Thread) luminaires can be controlled as one system. The validation took place in the GGD offices of the industrial heritage building “White Lady” in Eindhoven. The pilot was demonstrated publicly during the OpenAIS Symposium on May 23, 2018.

Big Data meets Applied AI-congress 2018

TNO organizes the Big data meets Applied AI! congress. Big Data is becoming more mature, the focus of 'typical' Big Data topics such as storage and interoperability is shifting to application, such as predictive analytics, but also to pitfalls such as bias. Applied AI connects to these topics and adds: explainability, reasoning, autonomy and human interaction. Date: September 27, 2018. 12h00-17h00 Venue: New Babylon Meeting Center, The Hague (NL)
