Description: Adaptive lighting can contribute to sound sleep and a regular sleep-wake cyccle. This research project will investiagte the impact of lighting to the wellbeing and comfort of older people, by developing an assistive system. Its intelligent open-loop control and biofeedback will adapt light parameters in response to psycho-physiological data, while manual adjustments nd default values stay available. An application will help users in understanding their own affective/cognitive state and trying to regulate it. With its open architecture, the system could be easily extended to include other environmental factors such as temperature, acoustics or colour.
