Perceptual Intelligence Lab

The Perceptual Intelligence Lab (π–Lab) is a centre of expertise for the study of human perception and the ecological properties of the physical world. Although we study all modalities we presently focus on human vision and optical properties of light and materials.Our expertise includes the functional understanding of human perception and the ecological constraints of the world. 

The π–Lab is a collaborative effort of the groups Man Machine Interaction (MMI, faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science) and Human Information Communication Design (HICD, faculty of Industrial Design Engineering) of the Delft University of Technology.

The main aim of the π-lab is to apply the expertise in perception to the design of user-centered applications. We have defined three specific projects, namely:

  • Intelligent lighting solutions
  • Collaboration at a distance in computer mediated settings
  • Virtual and mixed reality for social interaction
