Light control reinvented: control the darkness – Results of the ITEA project PRO-HEAL

The most efficient LED light only turns on when needed. In fact one could say: “It’s important to control the darkness”. But how do you control the lights, without a complex and expensive system? Chess Wise, a founding partner of PRO-HEAL project coordinator DevLab, aims at replacing the traditional wired systems by a wireless light control solution.

The ITEA project PRO-HEAL (Automated Self Protection and Self-Healing Software Solution), which ran successfully from January 2014 to June 2017, included partners from the Netherlands and South Korea. The project focussed on implementing self-management into the existing IoT devices, services and application domains.

One of the key outcomes of the PRO-HEAL project for Chess Wise was the development of MyriaMesh Light Control, an extremely scalable, resilient, self-organising and self-healing wireless mesh network for large LED Lighting systems.

MyriaMesh Light Control uses smart light control components like drivers, controllers, sensors and switches and is developed to be applied with any make and type lighting fixture. Without the use of cables, light control is fully integrated with LED lights. All components automatically form a strong mesh network. The wireless network software enables remote management of the Smart LED Lighting system for As-a-Service business models.

MyriaMesh Light Control is already being used in both commercial real estate and industrial projects, (in cooperation with Trilux, Dietal and Luminext):

MyriaMesh is running for the Accenture Innovation Awards that will be handed over on 27 October 2017 in Utrecht.
