EON Reality Inc., a heavy hitter in Virtual Reality based knowledge transfer for industry, education, and edutainment — and Tridonic, a major international supplier of integral lighting solutions, have forged a new partnership.
Together, the partners will develop an augmented reality control and provisioning interface for Tridonic’s IoT enabled industrial lighting solution — net4more.
We’re told that the AR application will be officially announced and demoed at CeBIT as part of Tridonic’s keynote: “Lighting as the backbone for the Internet of Things.”
By using AR, controlling and provisioning banks of LED lights becomes substantially easier. Lights can be identified and controlled visually through the Augmented Reality application which interfaces with the device over a sophisticated mesh network allowing users locally or from around the world to view device performance or control the light itself.
“Lighting will play a decisive role in the Internet of Things as it is everywhere, digital, and connected. It thus forms the ideal backbone for the IoT through which all the other devices can be connected. With our system net4more we will not only be able to connect luminaires, but offer value that goes beyond lighting,” explains Mathias Burger, Director Product Management Controls, Tridonic. “Together with EON Reality, we are now exploring how lighting, IoT, and Augmented Reality can be combined to enable further services and make e.g. lighting control or maintenance easier for the user.”
