Volatiles Lighting is a Berlin-based lighting technology company that combines traditional glass mosaic tiles with modern LED technology. The company creates sophisticated smart surface illuminations for design and light enthusiasts.
Volatile Lighting converts static surfaces into interactive lighting scenes. Their challenge was to provide immersive experience to their customers based on mood and location of the installation. They were looking for an expert IoT Development company with proven expertise in design, development of mobile apps, backend services, and expertise in managing hardware devices.
TechAhead provided a full-integrated solution from mobile app development to consulting on hardware devices. We developed mobile apps which allows user to seamlessly select from a multitude of different light scenes and adjust settings for perfect light experience.
User can choose from a library of dynamic light scenes as well as static unicolor scenes. One can adjust the brightness, color temperature, the speed of light scenes, tweak the background color of certain light scenes and activate or deactivate touch sensor functionality. We used ubiquitous WIFI-standard (WLAN 802.11 b/g/n at 2.4 GHz) for data communication and encrypted it for safety.
Project required development of complex lighting patterns with advanced haptic feedback to create touch sensitive lighting effects. We used MiniZed 7Z007S board for advanced light effects which gave us the required bandwidth and hardware playground to prototype and develop the advanced effects and interfacing options.
TechAhead created a fully integrated smartphone app for iOS and Android platform to control and facilitate management of the Volatile lighting system. The app is equipped with 15 preinstalled light scenes to give the mosaic surface a new design at a click.
We suggested MiniZed single core Zync 7Z007S processor with inbuilt wireless LAN and bluetooth 4.1 adaptor. MiniZed board also features advanced interface with inbuilt motion and temperature sensor and a digital microphone.
