Phillips is working on a smart lighting system for stores that will help consumers locate what they need while gathering all sorts of shopper intel. Apple has been testing a similar concept with their iBeacon system which detects consumers as they move past a display. The system can send out a coupon or a recipe or other related information to encourage the consumer to stop and shop.
Phillips’ system takes that concept to a new level by placing those sensors in the ceiling lights giving the system an overview of shoppers as they move around the store. (The image of a mouse in a maze comes to mind.)
