Node is an interactive lighting system comprised of a network of connected LED lights that respond to the presence of a human. When an LED unit detects motion, it increases its brightness and communicates with its neighbour, which also then illuminates. This results in an outward propagation of light from the motion source which spreads across the entire network. The system is modular which means it is scalable and versatile in its configuration.
System and Properties
Each modular unit is equipped with an infrared proximity sensor and a ring of LED lights. The behaviour of the system is completely reprogrammable due to the fact that each unit contains an independent microprocessor. The designer is therefore able to reconfigure the visual dynamics of the system.
