|MoTUS – Urban climate measuring equipment
A 27 m mast for the monitoring of urban climate parameters
>> Urban simulation group
Testbed for field measurements in the context of daylighting research. Dimensions of typical office space.
>> Daylighting group
A direct sunlight simulator (Heliodon) as well as a scanning sky (diffuse light) simulator as well as a photogoniometer for the study of directional light transmission and reflection properties of fenestration systems allow testing of scale models and samples.
>> Daylighting Group
A photobiological laboratory was recently set up for studies and research on the effects of light on physiology and behavior in humans.
