NaPiOn Motion Sensors used in M.I.T. Light Bridge

Panasonic Electric Works donated NaPiOn infrared motion/proximity sensors to the MIT Light Bridge project.

The MIT project is a dynamic interactive LED array that responds to pedestrians on the Massachusetts Avenue bridge in Cambridge, MA. The 10,000 pixel display is activated by sensors (proximity sensors, cameras, buttons, microphones, mobile phones) that respond to the movement and activities of viewers in the area.

By combining sensors and programmable lighting, the project illustrates the potential for user-driven urban screens and new configurations of low-resolution displays to blur the boundaries between traditional city lighting and the responsive infrastructures of tomorrow.
