This talk will present the design and application of Circadian adjusted LED lighting in different use cases (hospital, elderly apartments, school) from various projects run by the Lighting Design Research Group of Aalborg University Copenhagen. To date, the designs of lighting systems are simple and primarily made to support only visual acuity without taking into account other parameters. But people may have higher demands from the quality of light.
In this context, the talk showcases the development of an intelligent system to adjust the lighting to improve well-being and comfort levels, as well as to meet the needs of people indoors. To this goal, Circadian adjusted LED-based (CaLED) lighting is used, which can reflect the rhythm of outdoor daylight. CaLED lighting seems that may positively influence age-related needs, mood, cognition, alertness, sleep and improve well-being in general.
