Optimized lighting solution in terms of installation, energy efficiency, safety and comfort, for a combined management of light sources: LED, OLED or traditional

This project involves the development of an integrated lighting solution based on a feeder and centralized control (BOX). The proposed solution will allow the combined use of light emitting diodes - LEDs, organic LEDs -, integrated lighting infrastructures and traditional lighting.
The first applications focus on markets in the hotel industry and commercial property. Features addressed by this project focus on ease of installation and configuration, energy efficiency, safety and comfort.

Innovations that are proposed in this project allow overcoming three types of technological obstacles:
- Integration and miniaturization of the BOX (innovations: solid-state lighting loads recognition, SSL power allocation, optimization of the "power factor correction" mode)
- Identification of loads (SSL innovations: knowledge/OLED identification, SSL expenses integration in building materials)
- Development of new human machine interfaces (Innovation: HMI dedicated to the end user, HMI dedicated to the installer).
