(mentor) Faculty Industrial Design Engineering Department Industrial Design Date 2015-08-14 Abstract In this thesis I investigated the use of lighting to nudge people in their decision for a seat in a waiting area. Subconscious effects of several lighting parameters were examined and the results used in an integral lighting concept for Schiphol. This concept enables three functionalities: monitoring of the waiting area, determining the preferred locations for new travelers and adjusting the lighting in order to nudge these travelers to these respective locations. The concept monitors the area using passive infrared sensors, a low-cost solution to determine the crowd densities. The lighting consists of two elements; ambient lighting with variable luminance at the seats and an array of focused lighting at the walkway crossing the waiting area. Travelers can be nudged to specific seats by increasing the luminance level at these respective places. Additionally, the light beam frequency at the walkway can be increased as well, attracting attention from the travelers. As the Schiphol piers can be crowded, the lighting effects are not only designed to illuminate the floor, but also the ceiling. In this way the efficiency of the system is enhanced and its influence on the travelers increased.
