“Safety in footcandles” is the default mindset for illuminance. Such thinking is the bane of lighting designers and a major challenge when designing spaces for pedestrians. Lighting design based on pedestrian activities at night requires very different requirements from vehicular roadway-centric lighting. This session will explore the human interaction with contrast, color rendering, and glare reduction that shape and enhance the visual experience while protecting the environment. Participants will learn the basics of LED technology and become familiar with concepts to help evaluate LED lighting for future projects.
At the end of this program, participants will know:
• To learn how glare reduction, color rendering, and effective uniformity are important components of the visual experience, each benefiting visibility and perception of safety.
• To understand the basic components and functionality of a LED and what has made these light sources the best choice for pedestrian and path lighting applications.
• To explore basic luminaire design concepts and how utilizing quality components in combination with proper luminaire design forms a high-performing system that creates an enhanced visual experience.
• To understand types of luminaires, light distribution, and other technical components that need to be considered when specifying lighting.
• To examine the adverse effects of using lighting that mimics daylight and how that can impact our health, our safety, and the environments that we live in.
