The World’s First Standards for the Digitalization of Artificial Lighting Have Been Developed

30 December 2020

The Russian Lighting Research Institute named after Sergey Vavilov (VNISI) has developed new national standards in the field of digitalization of innovative artificial lighting. The work was carried out with the support of the RUSNANO’s Fund for Infrastructure and Educational Programs to facilitate the implementation of the Digital Economy in the Russian Federation national program and aimed at forming a regulatory framework for digital technologies in the field of LED-based artificial lighting.

The following standards have been prepared in the state certification system for mandatory conformity assessment:

  • GOST R “Artificial Lightning. Information Technologies. Internet of Things. Information Support for Inventory of Lighting Objects. Terms and Definitions”
  • GOST R “Artificial Lightning. Information Technologies. Internet of Things. Information Support for Inventory of Lighting Objects. Classification of objects”
  • GOST R “Artificial Lightning. Information Technologies. Internet of Things. Information Support for Inventory of Lighting Objects. Requirements for Integration with Adjacent Information Systems”.

A preliminary national standard (PNST) has also been developed:

  • PNST “LED Lamps. Information Technologies. Smart Manufacturing. Requirements for a Typical Digital Model”.

The developed set of standards, which have no Russian or international analogues, is intended to become the regulatory and technical basis for the information support of artificial lighting for the development of smart LED lighting production, inventory of lighting facilities, and their digital integration into information and analytical systems, such as Smart City, Smart Road, etc.

The standards are supposed to be used for technical inventory and certification of lighting systems and lighting control systems, the preparation of input data for the design, operation, overhaul, and reconstruction of lighting systems and objects, as well as for creating digital models of physical and logical objects of lighting systems for their use in information modeling in the design, and also for creating "digital twins" of lighting systems.

The experts from Svetoservice-TeleMekhanika LLC (LightService-TeleMechanics) were involved in the development of the standard. Draft standards were publicly discussed with the participation of the Technical Committee on Standardization “Cyber-Physical Systems” (TC 194), the Institute of Light Sources named after A.N. Lodygin, the Association of Manufacturers of LEDs, and other enterprises. 

The standards are planned to be approved and put into effect in early 2021.

The Fund for Infrastructure and Educational Programs was established in 2010 in accordance with Federal Law No. 211-FZ “On reorganization of the Russian Corporation of Nanotechnologies.” The Fund aims to develop the innovative infrastructure in the sphere of nanotechnology and implement the educational and infrastructure programs already started by RUSNANO.

The supreme collegial management body of the Fund is the Supervisory Board. Under the Fund’s Charter, the competence of the Supervisory Council, in particular, includes the issues of determining the priority directions of the Fund’s activity, as well as its strategy and budget. The Chairman of the Fund’s Executive Board, the collegial management body, is the Chairman of the Board of Management Company RUSNANO LLC Sergey Kulikov.
