Self-Driving Walls – LiDAR by ENESS

Self-Driving Walls LiDAR by ENESS

LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) is the latest in tracking technology, used in self-driving cars for companies like Uber, Mercedes, Tesla and Google. New media design studio ENESS is already taking self-driving car principles into the built form.

The technology was used in a recent interactive wall installation for Cabrini Hospital Malvern, Australia, where moonlit scenes were programmed to appear at night-time, to bring a visual slice of the outside in for children who can’t step outside.

ENESS continues to use this interactive technology for projects in every context, from public foyers and atriums, to collaborative workspaces and airports. ENESS is keen to speak to collaborators and architects interested in designing world-class immersive spaces, and interested in learning about LUMES interactive potential in architecture.
