open in viewer

Homes in Mandi, India are poorly lit during the daytime, and the residents are forced to use electricity to illuminate interiors. The goal of our project is to improve the lighting of these households through use of alternative day lighting solutions. We researched the available day lighting technologies for various building types. Our collaborative team of students from IIT Mandi and WPI surveyed local villages to confirm the interest and need for our project. We then combined our knowledge of interior lighting systems with our interview results to develop prototypes and subsequently implemented them into select houses. Finally, after a trial period, we solicited feedback from the residents of the implemented houses and made recommendations for solving this problem worldwide.
