Human centered design approaches places the experiencing human at the center of concern, situated in relation to the dynamics of the environmental condition and the variables of the system of control and sensing.
Taking the approach of enacted design methods to enforce the experience of the inhabitant as core in human-centered design solutions, the intelligence of the connected sensors is suggested to be developed as an actual learning and self-adjusting adaptive environment, where the adaptive system is part of a negotiation with users on the qualities of the environment.
We will present a fully functional sketching environment for adaptive sensor-control systems, which enable integration of the complex situation of everyday activities and human well-being.
The proposed sketching environment allows for the development of sensor systems related to lighting conditions and human occupancy and activity, driven by detailed encounters with human centered investigations and experiential accounts.
The sensor system is a test environment, using a very elaborate system design to enable extensive variations in the sensor and network parameters. But, the suggestion is, that by using this kind of high-level, detailed and open design tools, the lighting designer and the system designer are able to develop the adaptive design parameters on site and in situ.
