After the smart city and the smart web,light too becomes intelligent. We have lamps and bulbs that realize when we enter a room, that detect how many of us are there and where we are going, turning themselves off when we are no longer there. Lights that are controlled with an app from a smartphone, or a voice assistant; lights that brighten the most dangerous zones of the city, and revert into stand-by when no one passes, saving energy and costs for the public administration. Recently data and light have begun to travel together, through network cabling, with a strong impact on the form of the city and architecture, profoundly altering our conditions of life. This is the great opportunity for the design of smart lighting.
