  1. 1. Complicated Shadows : the Aesthetic Significance of Simulated Illumination in Digital Games

    Author : Simon Niedenthal; Malmö högskola; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Interaction design; Game design; Game studies; Game aesthetics; Game lighting; Lighting design; Digital games; Lighting; Simulated Illumination;

    Abstract : A common feature of many digital games is that they are played in a simulated 3D environment, a game world. Simulated illumination is the lighting designed into a game world. This thesis explores the influence of simulated illumination in digital games upon the emotion and behavior of the player. READ MORE

  2. 2. Light Design : Outdoor Urban Public Places : - Urban Lighting: Design and Technologies -

    Author : José Nuno Sampaio; Björn-Erik Erlandsson; Izael Pereira Da Silva; KTH; []
    Keywords : Light-based Technologies and Design; Energiteknik; Energy Technology;

    Abstract : Most of the present time outdoor lighting investments seem to be focused on road and automotive traffic facilities or oriented toward safety, security and efficiency. We can identify this in many of the world cities, as a globally spread common practice, where lighting is still highly perceived as a pure matter of quantities’ distribution.

  3. 3. Lighting simulation for a more value-driven building design process

    Author : Anahita Davoodi; Thorbjörn Laike; Peter Johansson; Annika Moscati; Högskolan i Jönköping; []
    Keywords : lighting simulation; lighting design; lighting quality; energy efficiency; perception;

    Abstract : Concerns about global warming are increasing, hence, the urgency to cut carbon emissions. Reducing energy consumption, including lighting energy, is seen as the primary solution. Yet, solving the environmental factor should not come at the cost of other pillars of sustainable development. READ MORE

  4. 4. Do lighting control and user interface design matter to occupant behaviour? The case of optimal lighting use in non-residential buildings

    Author : Pimkamol Mattsson; Institutionen för arkitektur och byggd miljö; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; characteristic; design; energy reduction; energy-saving behaviour; lighting control; light switch; lighting use; non-residential building; perception; user interface;

    Abstract : The lowering of energy use from artificial lighting in buildings is vital to reaching the goal of reducing CO2 emissions. Hence, changes in individuals’ behaviours regarding lighting use have received increased attention. Feedback on energy use has often been used to change individuals’ behaviour. READ MORE

  5. 5. Lighting Control Systems for Energy Saving and User Acceptance: State-of-the-art and future directions

    Author : Niko Gentile; Energi och ByggnadsDesign; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Indoor lighting; lighting control system; lighting control; energy saving; energy efficiency; user acceptance; human factor; occupancy strategies; absence sensor; presence sensor; lighting switch; manual switch; daylight harvesting system; daylight-linked system; photoelectric dimming; photosensor.;

    Abstract : Lighting accounts for one-fifth of global electricity use. In Sweden, energy demand for lighting corresponds to 20% of the total electricity use in office buildings. Lighting retrofit measures are considered to be among the most cost-efficient way to reduce energy use in buildings. READ MORE
