Spotlight on Aggression

"A short article describing the project in the magazine of TU/e's Intelligent Lighting Institute".

Almost on a daily basis, the media report of aggression. Defusing aggressive escalation in such situations is no mean feat and sometimes requires the active intervention of experts. But in De-escalate, a strategic research project funded by NWO, researchers investigate whether interactive lighting may help serve to confine, contain and control aggressive events.

Smart Urban Lighting

"Increasing quality of life and reducing costs and energy seem like conflicting requirements. But the interesting thing is that new technologies for public lighting offer the opportunity to do both at the same time".
