Philips Lighting and Renault have teamed up to develop a combination concept car/smart home that treats a self-driving electric car as a stylish extra room that also serves as a lighting control center: The Renault Symbioz.
Imagine pulling up to your home which recognizes you and automatically allows entry. Some smooth jazz ( if that’s what you’re into otherwise insert music type here) turns on as does a path of light right to the kitchen as your cappuccino machine starts to make your afternoon shot of caffeine. This is a look at the future where the Internet of Things connects your whole world together and all your needs are presupposed through experiential learning and algorithms. For the time being however, a smart lighting control system by Lutron and available at Bee Ridge Lighting can be your stop gap to get you prepared for all the robot glory that lies ahead.
