ALIAS – Ambient Lighting Integrated Assistance System


The goal of this thesis is the development of a personalised wireless ambient lighting for assistive environments. The main idea is to use ambient lighting as a communication channel and as a health support system. This should be provided by using ‘Philips Hue’ Personal Wireless Lighting system. The system will be mainly composed by a web portal and an Android module, which will allow for configuration of the system and to interoperate with ‘Philips Hue’ bridge (which controls the lights). This enables the possibility of configuring and interacting with the system from anywhere.
