LIGHTFAIR® International’s 27-year precedent of education innovation continues with the creation and launch of the LFI IoT & Smart Lighting Forum, a new one-day series of six 60-minute sessions designed to explore the impact of Internet of Things (IoT) and how it relates to smart lighting.
Within the 2016 Conference, which includes 82 courses, the IoT & Smart Lighting Forum strives to address both the potential and challenges of IoT and whether smart lighting truly extends beyond using connectivity for energy efficiency and maintenance. The Forum takes place on Wednesday, April 27 during LFI 2016 at the San Diego Convention Center April 24 – 28 (Pre-Conference LIGHTFAIR Institute®: April 24 – 25; Trade Show & Conference: April 26 – 28).
The Forum sessions cover IoT, smart lighting, controls, adaptive outdoor lighting, personalized environments, IT-based lighting systems, networking technology, sensors and more. Registration for LFI 2016 opens on February 2 and Forum sessions will be available as a package or individually.
The six sessions in the IoT & Smart Lighting Forum are:
