Robotic measurement used in installation of Signify’s LED pitch lighting


Aichi’s Toyota Stadium is the first in Japan to install Signify’s LED pitch lighting using robotics.

Signify has installed its connected lighting system, Interact Sports, at the Toyota Stadium in Aichi, Japan. It’s the first outdoor stadium in Japan to install connected LED pitch lighting in combination with high-performance Philips ArenaVision LEDs. Unique to the project was its use of robotic measurement while installing the connected lighting system.

The robotic measurement is part of Signify’s innovative commissioning method. It helps to reduce installation time and significantly improves accuracy compared with traditional measurement methods. Aiming of floodlights, horizontal illuminance, color temperature and rendering are just a few of the components put to the test. The total service package installed in Japan’s first LED outdoor stadium includes software-based lighting design, 3D visualization and video aiming.

Already in operation in stadia around the world, Signify’s LED lighting system brings an immersive bowl lighting experience by integrating color changing floodlights with entertainment lighting moving color spots. The new lighting meets the stringent broadcast standards for flicker-free Ultra-HD 4K television and super-slow-motion action replays, enabling viewers at home to clearly see every detail.

The 45,000-seat Toyota Stadium also upgraded its pitch floodlights with 554 energy-efficient LED lighting fixtures. It now uses Interact Sports Lighting management software to control and manage Philips ArenaVision LED Field of Play (pitch) lighting.
