Jeongmin Lee presented an extended abstract entitled, “PicLight: User-Centered Lighting Control Interface for Residential Space” on the 33rd Annual ACM Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI 2015) in Seoul, South Korea. Kyungah Choi has co-authored the paper. Their study aims to develop PicLight, a user-centered lighting control interface based on the behavior of photo editing as an analogy for controlling light. This study demonstrates that intuitive, context-based lighting control interface can help users explore the effects of colored illumination in creating a diverse range of user experiences.
This study aims to develop PicLight, a user-centered lighting control interface based on the behavior of photo editing as an analogy for controlling light. The PicLight application allows users to takes photos of a space, then uses those photos to display simulations of lighting scenarios through filter effects, providing users with guidance for easy selection of optimal lighting conditions. We formed 20 lighting presets each of that engages user activity, affection. In order to determine whether the presets were suitable, we conveyed a validation test and validated context-based presets are effective features for designing lighting control interfaces.
