WORKSHOP 5 1:00PM - 5:00PM
NETWORKED OUTDOOR LIGHTING CONTROL SYSTEM FUNDAMENTALS
The growing adoption of LED technology into the outdoor infrastructure is bringing with it an opportunity to control outdoor lighting
that was not previously possible. This workshop will provide attendees with a comprehensive understanding of the full capabilities of
market-available outdoor lighting control systems, focusing on the following key learning objectives: 1) Understand the underlying
technologies and building blocks that compose networked outdoor lighting control systems; 2) understand the value propositions
offered by networked outdoor lighting control systems, current real-world barriers to adoption, and the status of relevant research,
standards and regulations; 3) understand the importance of building block compatibility, interoperability and interchangeability
– as well as why and when to specify each, and related industry consortium developments and; 4) understand how to align
value propositions with the needs of relevant stakeholder groups, create strategies for overcoming barriers to adoption, and draft
specifcations that meet user needs today, and in the future.
Dave Cavalcanti, Project Leader, Philips Research North America, GE Lighting, PNNL
Dave has been a project leader at Philips Research North America since 2005. He received his PhD in computer
science and engineering in 2006 from the University of Cincinnati. His experience includes wireless communications
and networking, cognitive radio, TV white spaces, machine to machine (M2M) applications, lighting controls, and
energy management systems. He has contributed to development of multiple industry standards, (including IEEE
802.11, 802.15, 802.22, and ECMA 392), and currently serves as the technical editor for the TALQ Consortium, and the
Chair of the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Simulation (TCSIM).
Mark Wilbur, System Manager, GE Lighting
Mark is system manager at GE Lighting with 20 years of RFIC and wireless network design experience. During his time
at Anadigics and Intersil he contributed to the design of multiple RFIC chipsets used for WLAN and CATV and cellular
product lines. More recently Mark has focused on product design and network deployment for lighting and smart grid
metering products. He has contributed to development of multiple industry standards, including ANSI C136, ZigBee
Light Link, IEEE 802.15.4G, 802.154K, and TALQ. Currently, he serves as the vice chair for the ZigBee LightLink Technical
Committee, and on the TALQ Consortium Technical and Steering Committees.
