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.

The project description has been provided by the project members themselves and the text has not been looked at by our editors.
