Purpose and goal
The project is development of a prototype; an instrument for performing a new method of analyzing a light environment and specifically colour, intensity, contrast and spatial resolution in one shot. The method provides a method to evaluate and compare all aspect of a light environment, relevant to people, simultaneously, in a repeatable measurement. The project comprises product-, electronics-, UX-design, SW development and implementation of analysis calculations.
Expected results and effects
The project outcome is a functional prototype. All primary functionality has been implemented and desired performance related to measurement and analysis was achieved. All design aspects were preceded by a design process according to the design thinking principles. This results in a product that exhibits simplicity, yet precision and credibility.
Planned approach and implementation
The first critical phase was evaluating and choosing the right partners. All design aspects were preceded by a design process according to the design thinking principles. Great emphasis was put map out the specific needs and preferences of the target groups. Development of product- and electronics design as well as design of the user interface was then performed. Last phase was implementation of user interface and embedded SW development.
