Philips Lighting, a global leader in lighting, today announced the opening of its new Lighting Application Center (LAC) at the Philips APAC Center in Singapore. Philips LAC is supported by the Economic Development Board and serves growing demands for the Internet of Things (IoT) and connected systems in growth markets — ASEAN Pacific, India, Japan, Middle East & Turkey, Russia & Central Asia, and the Africas.
With Singapore as the company’s regional hub, its LAC supports the testing and development of innovative applications for connected and sustainable systems. In fact, Philips Lighting is already in collaboration with CapitaLand, Toll Holdings, as well as educational institutions Temasek Polytechnic and Admiralty Secondary School to demonstrate the value of such systems and drive the next wave of innovation.
In addition, the LAC will showcase the latest digital lighting innovations: interactive multimedia pixel wall, multi-experience stadium lighting, visual light communications for indoor positioning, warehouse lighting, Power-over-Ethernet for offices, luminous panels and textiles, connected street lighting, and more. The LAC serves as the largest and only demonstration space for Philips Lighting in ASEAN Pacific with indoor and outdoor applications for innovative lighting, with 80 per cent of the centre covered with technologically-advanced LED luminaires that are programmed with interactive and connected features.
