Lighting sticks

Authors: Przemysław Barański MSc and Marcin Morański MSc

Supervisor: Associate Professor Michał Strzelecki MSc PhD DSc

The thesis placed third the competition for the best MSc thesis in the academic year 2006/2007 organized by the Polish Association of Electric Engineers (SEP) and the Faculty of Electrical, Electronic, Computer and Control Engineering of the Technical University of Lodz.

The main purpose of our master thesis is to create a device that can greatly speed up the designing work of architects. The idea of lighting
sticks is based on the normal sticks used to outline future buildings.

The deployment of the sticks in a graphic form has to be accessed by a computer. The locations of the sticks are to be read out from the computer.

The circumference of a proposed building is outlined by the sticks’ positions. Lighting sticks should visualize their state (e.g. membership to a selected group of sticks) by light indicators.
