A reaction known as the Pupillary Light Reflex (PLR) regulates the pupil’s size in response to the amount of light hitting the eye. The adaptation brightness primarily affects the ocular width. The PLR has been recognized as a significant passive marker of autonomic nerve system activity. In the past, it was believed that paths coming from regular photoreceptors are what power the PLR. Over the past century, significant attempts have been made to create formulae and statistical models that can forecast pupil sizes under various lighting circumstances.

Watson and Yellott created a uniform formula for steadystate pupil size based on a number of hypothesized formulae, taking into account photopic luminance as a regulating factor. How the visual system can recognize precise shifts in environmental irradiance to regulate the PLR is still a mystery. For a very long period, lighting has evolved into a crucial component of our modern way of living. Light-Emitting Diodes (LEDs), which have high energy efficiency, have replaced incandescent and fluorescent lights as the primary lighting goods. However, it is now challenging to add value solely through the production of LEDs due to the widespread production of inexpensive LEDs in China and Southeast Asia. As a result, the industrial sector is becoming more servitized.


The identification of Intrinsically Photosensitive Retinal Ganglion Cells (ipRGCs) in the early 2000s, which have numerous extensions in the outer shell of the Olivary Pretectal Nucleus (OPN) for facilitating the PLR, may offer new information about how to respond to this query. In addition to their own inherent signal, ipRGCs also receive external signals from rods and cones, just like other varieties of RGCs. For a longer period stimuli durations, over the first 200 ms following the begin of incremental light stimuli, the primary constriction of the pupil is mediated merely by classical photoreceptors, following which the pupil eventually increases to a relatively stable state due to the light adaptation to classical photoreceptors and the participation of melanopsin if the light intensity is greater than the threshold of melanopsin.

Light strikes rods and cones during a process in the visual pathway, whereas light strikes inherently responsive retinal ganglion cells during a process in the non-visual pathway. (ipRGCs). There are two methods for measuring light’s non-visual stimulus. The melanopic Equivalent Daylight Illuminance (EDI) is determined by measuring the spectral reaction of the photopigments in the cones, rods, and ipRGC photoreceptors, whereas the circadian stimulus is determined by measuring the reduction of melatonin. By taking into account the melanopic impacts of ocular light in human-centric illumination, many organizations have tried to standardize HCL assessment standards. The HCL structure has been used in numerous efforts to create Light-Emitting Diode (LED) Spectral Power Distributions (SPDs) for human users.

Psychophysical investigations have demonstrated that LED lights which can increase a contrast gamut region in contrast to the reference light source are likely to be favored by investigated consumers’ preference and approval under LED lights that existing the ability to dominate or de-saturate distinctive colors in a workplace environment. They discovered that subjects preferred and accepted LED lights with higher values on the CQS color quality scale, gamut area scale, CQS color preference scale, and gamut area index than LED lights with lower values on the Qg, Qp, and GAI. Compared two LED lights to determine which was favored by users: Blue Pumped LED (BP-LED) lamps and BP-LED lamps with lessened yellow emission (YD-LED). The PLR is frequently used as a noninvasive instrument for fundamental brain study, physiological and psychiatric clinical evaluation, etc. It can be viewed as an important sign of autonomic nervous system function. Numerous studies on people have been conducted on the PLR. Office HCL color characteristics should have a suitable brightness level and take user approval into account. This research is anticipated to serve as the foundation for creating an office-specific LED lighting system that considers customer acceptance.


The majority of study in the area of HCL concentrates on specific domains, like the medical effect, design, and platform, to summarize the literature survey. While these are crucial for the development of the HCL industry, study from a macro viewpoint, including services, platforms, and business strategies in an integrated way, is required to increase the use of HCL and revive the sector. Therefore, a service model is created for the sustainability of HCL in this research based on the eco-science approach, and it is then experimentally validated.
