TerraSwarm Interactive Pedestrian Lights Installed in San Leandro

TerraSwarm Interactive Lights have been installed around the perimeter of Casa Peralta, a museum and historic landmark, in San Leandro, California.

The team for this project includes TerraSwarm PI Bjoern Hartmann. In designing the installation the project team considered elements of function, safety, and aesthetics with a focus on creating a positive user experience. The installation is intended to encourage pedestrian traffic by providing energy efficient interactive lighting to the area. It uses exiting infrastructure, is cost efficient, and contributes less light pollution then conventional lighting options.

The presence of a pedestrian activates the lighting pattern. Sensors and stored data are used to regulate the lighting schemes, incorporating the elements of pedestrian speed and direction in the interactive display.
