Connected lighting and the Internet of Things (IoT) are disrupting what has been a stable lighting industry and opening amazing potential for manufacturers of LED-based solid-state lighting (SSL). The industry, of course, could not approach the connected age with a blank sheet of paper, but has faced the challenge of bringing connectivity and IoT features into their existing portfolios while also contemplating a future where the connectivity implementation is ideal.
The LED driver sits at the heart of most luminaires and is perhaps the subsystem most impacted by the move toward connectivity. The SSL industry is seeing schemes where legacy drivers are being augmented with adjacent smart modules and ultimately LED drivers with integrated smarts. This webcast, sponsored by Tridonic, will examine the landscape and opportunity for smart lighting and then look at the role of drivers in wired and wireless environments and how luminaire manufacturers can make their portfolios IoT ready.
