Influence of Illuminance on Sleep Onset Latency in IoT based Lighting System Environment
Granada, May 2019. Maksym Gaiduk has presented the results of research on the Influence of illuminance on sleep onset latency by 7th International Work-Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedical Engineering.

The exposure to the light has a great influence on human beings in their everyday life. Various lighting sources produce light that reaches the human eye and influences a rhythmic release of melatonin hormone, that is a sleep-promoting factor. The research was conducted on healthy young subjects after being previously exposed to the preconfigured illuminance for at least three hours before bedtime. The results indicate a correlation between sleep onset latency and exposure to different illuminance before bedtime. In a dimmed environment, the subject fell asleep in average 28% faster compared to the brighter environment.
