Samsung Announces New Smart Lighting Module


Module is designed for smart building and smart city IoT devices.

Today technology giant Samsung, known for everything from mobile phones to components, announced the launch of its new Smart Lighting Module (SML). Designed as part of the company’s Smart Lighting Platform, the company stated that it will provide a core building block for a variety of potential smart lighting systems and allow most devices to talk to one another by supporting all wired and wireless communication protocols, offer power metering, and over-the-air updating.

“After announcing our smart lighting platform concept last year, we are now rolling out what can be considered the most critical component in a smart lighting system,” said Dr. Jacob Tarn, executive vice president of Samsung’s LED Business Team, in the announcement. The company’s smart-lighting platform “solves many of the problems that OEMs are finding in today’s smart building and smart city IoT applications.”

The smart lighting platform is designed to integrate with LED systems and transform them into digital nodes, the company stated in their announcement. “This Internet of Things (IoT) platform incorporates processing capabilities, firmware, connectivity and an open architecture connected to sensors for collecting data and creating new applications,” the announcement added.

Samsung added that they plan to form partnerships with providers of smart components, LED drivers, gateways, as well as cloud, analytics, and IoT services. So far they have already done so with Daintree, Silver Springs Networks, and FLIR.

The modules are slated to ship to OEMs next month.
