This project was conducted in a team of four fellow students in the scope of a Philips Creative Challenge. The central theme in this challenge was ‘Hospitality’, the art of treating guests.

After considering different hospitality contexts and settings in the first week, we decided to go for a context that is not quite like the traditional hospitality fields: the metro system. We value the fact that this is a very dynamic public space, involving many different people who are not only the guest of the metro operator, but who are also hosts and guests of each other. We also highly value the potential of such an environment for the application of intelligent systems. In a dynamic public space like the metro system, intelligent technologies can really have a societal impact.

The result is an intelligent lighting system for metro carriages taking care of an increased perception of safety and allowing the host to have higher maintenance efficiency.

Please, do share!
