Intelligent lighting control system using ToF depth cameras


Customer: Zumtobel Group


In modern lighting control, unprecedented user comfort and energy savings can be achieved by controlling each luminaire smartly and separately. This requires advanced sensors, but using video cameras as sensors pose a risk to persons’ privacy.


VTT developed an intelligent lighting control demonstration that utilises Time-of-Flight depth cameras as sensors.

  • Comfortable and energy efficient lighting
  • User privacy is assured
  • New gesture based lighting control is possible


From start to finish of the project we had regular and constructive discussions and the VTT team was very responsive. Furthermore, we were impressed by the enthusiasm and commitment as well as the profound expertise of each team member which enabled them to come up with convincing solutions.
