The Detroit People Mover is an elevated, light rail system that circles Detroit. While it provides efficient transportation for business travelers, tourists, residents, and downtown employees, it is also a cultural experience. This station features mixed media art installations so breathtaking that the station itself is an attraction. Located in an elegant corporate center and office complex, Millender Center Station offers direct access to the Renaissance Center and easy access to the COBO Center. Traxon & e:cue’s dynamic lighting and control products were used to create a dazzling, dynamic display at this prominent station. Traxon’s weather-resistant Media Tube RGB was produced in custom lengths and artfully applied to a main wall, creating an illuminated mural that is visible from both inside and outside the station. Traxon’s color-changing Graze XB RGB and Graze XB Warm White were installed along the glass station enclosure, adding interest to the walkway and creating a gallery-like atmosphere at Millender Station. e:cue’s Lighting Control Engine fx(LCE-fx) and Butler XT were employed to manage the shifting illumination patterns. These advanced controls handle the complex pre-programmed cues that trigger the artistic lighting displays; moreover, these controls allow the system to be easily operated, overridden, and remotely controlled by DPM staff.
