16th St. Mall Interactive Lighting

The project goal was to create an user interactive light display. There are three types of light displays that the user can interact with, changing such items as colors, brightness and light patterns. Following that the user can select one of three games matching colors, light patterns, or stopping an ever quickening strobing light. The control panel used touchless sensors so the user interaction did not require any physical touching. Number of light points in display is variable and can be built in to almost any shape or object, in this case the street lights along the mall. The independent lights in the display used point to point WiFi for communications so wiring was kept to a minimum, only power was required. Entire system is programmable so other displays/games can be created, and other types of user input devices (such as control by user phone) can be selected if desired.
