Interface Development of Ship Indoor Lighting

In this research study, a lighting interface was designed to draw lighting wiring diagrams of ships using a Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) program. By means of the utilization factor method for calculating the lamp number in the cabin, the luminaires and wiring are drawn with an AutoCAD drawing. From the design concept and manufacturing cost, the VBA program can build a construction layout, indoor lighting systems drawing, description of the luminaires, and cost estimation. Illumination experiments can calibrate the lamp number and illumination correctness; last, the authors use ant colony algorithms to calculate the optimized path and reduce the costs.
