User-centric study of interaction with a state-of-the-art daylight/electric light control algorithm in an office setting

The increase of automation in buildings in order to diminish electric lighting and increase daylight exposure for health, comfort and energy-saving purposes suffers from negative user perception. The project aims to study the potential of a purposeful interplay between a user-centric interface design and an intelligent daylight and electric lighting control, in order to optimise comfort, promote user acceptance and, ultimately, save electricity.
