Smart Lighting is a Myth: LEDs, Illumination, and Future Possibilities


Smart Lighting is a Myth: LEDs, Illumination, and Future Possibilities

Illumination business and technology changes wrought by the introduction of LED's for lighting will continue to evolve, even as energy efficiency fades as a driver for LED lighting adoption.  The role of lighting in smart systems and services will largely depend upon the battle for the socket (or pole and ceiling) where sensors, intelligence with local edge computing, communications and access to power reside.  As the lighting industry wrestles with relevance in interconnected smart buildings and smart city systems, new opportunities for illumination science and engineering are continuing to evolve in human wellbeing, communications, architecture and even displays, and the trajectories of some of these new opportunities will be reviewed.

Webinar participants are eligible for one (1) IES Continuing Education Unit (CEU).

Date of Webinar: 6/13/2019 12:00 PM Eastern Time

Presenter: Robert (Bob) F. Karlicek, Jr

LESA Director and Rensselaer Professor of Electrical, Computer Systems Engineering

Robert (Bob) F. Karlicek, Jr. received his PhD in Physical Chemistry from the University of Pittsburgh. Prior to joining RPI, he spent over 30 years in industrial research and R&D management positions with corporations including AT&T Bell Labs, EMCORE, General Electric, Gore Photonics, Microsemi, Luminus Devices and SolidUV.

Bob’s technical experience includes epitaxial growth of high performance LEDs and lasers, advanced device fabrication and high power LED packaging, thermal management, control systems design and applications in solid state lighting as well as other novel LED uses such as IR and UV LED applications.
