Signify has installed a connected lighting system at Toyota Stadium in Aichi, Japan, using robotic measurement to reduce installation time and provide accuracy compared to traditional methods.

Toyota Stadium is the first outdoor stadium in Japan to install connected light emitting diode (LED) lighting using Philips Arena Vision LEDs. The lights installed include software-based lighting, 3D visualization and video aiming.

The lighting system integrates color-changing floodlights alongside moving color spots. The lighting provides flicker-free Ultra-HD 4K television and slow-motion action replay so people in the stands and watching on TV can see all of the details. Other stadiums that use this lighting include Madrid's Wanda Metropolitano Stadium and Juventus' Allianz Stadium in Turin, Italy.

The lighting includes 554 energy-efficient LED lighting fixtures across its 45,000-seat stadium combining seven different light distribution characteristics, which make it possible to capture each player’s action.
