Wipro Lighting has, over the past two decades, has strived to create products which transform the way we see lighting. Their current aim is to make human-centric lighting solutions.
The aim is to offer lighting solutions that are ambient and comfortable, using the latest technologies. This approach also brings about cost and energy savings, according to Anuj Dhir, Vice-President, Business Head, Wipro Lighting.
Over the past 25 years, the company has been focusing on design and innovation, and this has enabled them to look beyond offering simple lighting solutions.
The first of few LiFi technology-based wireless communication and lighting solutions, brought out in partnership with Scotland-based pureLiFi, will be unveiled in the coming months. pureLiFi is a ‘light communication’ company, founded in 2012 as a spin-out of the University of Edinburgh, that creates OEM components including LiFi drivers and receivers.
‘LiFi’ is a bidirectional fully networked wireless communication technology that uses visible light rather than radio frequencies. It can offer greater security, data rates and densities to support more robust and reliable wireless networks that complement and enhance existing cellular and Wi-Fi networks.
It is now about providing connected and smart lighting for not just a home, a large commercial building, a city lighting system or even a smart city has now evolved into something about ‘internet of lighting’ that makes its management smart and simple. For example, if we take a system of over 10,000 lights in a smart city, it can be remotely managed since there will be information 10,000 lights are not functioning well due to the use of smart solutions.
