Abstract. In this article we present an approach to an adaptive lighting system as an intelligent object supporting urban space, especially for the elderly. This intelligent lighting system is used as an instrument to improve the feeling of safety in everyday life by overcoming barriers such as dark areas at night. The intelligence of this system is based on a personalized and position-dependent adaptation of light, whereby intensity and color can be varied. This article focuses on the technical implementation of a corresponding lighting system. In this context, the main point of emphasis is the overall architecture, especially from the point of view of an application system.
