  • Patent number: 11002412
    Abstract: First adapter (10) and second adapter (40) are each separately securable to a respective automotive light bar (200, 201) at mutually facing lateral light bar end caps (206). The adapters (10, 40) interfit, such as first adapter (10) having one or more tenons (14; 18) received in shape-conforming recess or mortise (44) of second adapter (40). The coupling assembly formed from interfit first and second adapters (10, 40) sufficiently supports a midspan region of conjoined light bars (200, 201) to permit omission of mounting L-brackets (208) conventionally required at the mutually facing light bar ends (206), thus allowing fewer holes to be drilled in vehicle roof or bumper (212) and resulting in an aesthetically cleaner presentation of the overall lengthened light bar assembly.

  • Patent number: 10995923
    Abstract: A vehicle lamp capsule 32 having a base 34 having a spring 5 which, when lamp capsule 32 is installed, biases an inner surface of a vehicle lamp reflector 12. Spring 5 is monolithically formed with base 34 along with at least one reflector-locating structure on the base such as circumferentially extending exterior locating surface 44 and/or retaining keys 42. Base 34 and spring 5 may be molded of a plastics material. In other embodiments base 34 and spring 5 are made in one piece of sheet metal. The spring 5 formed unitary with the lamp base 34 meets regulatory requirements and avoids a risk of dislodgement of a conventional separate piece-part metal spring which could cause an electrical short when the lamp is installed in the field. The lamp capsule 32 is suitably an H13-style lamp.

  • Patent number: 10993388
    Abstract: Various implementations disclosed herein includes a method for operating lighting fixtures in horticultural applications. The method may include receiving a user input of a desired irradiance for a first color channel of one or more lighting fixtures that irradiates a plant bed, in which each of the one or more lighting fixtures comprises at least one light emitting diode (LED) array, determining, for each of the one or more lighting fixtures, a PWM setting of the first color channel such that each of the one or more lighting fixtures irradiate the plant bed at the desired irradiance based on calibration data stored in each of the one or more lighting fixtures, and applying, to each of the one or more lighting fixtures, the determined PWM setting of the first color channel.

  • Patent number: 10958577
    Abstract: Optimized routing in localized dense networks is provided. A packet is received at a first network device in a network. An optimal route for the packet to a neighbor network device in the network is determined using a Source Routing Table (SRT), wherein the SRT includes an optimized routing table and a standard routing table, and wherein the optimized routing table comprises a list of neighbor network devices that the first network device can route to directly and wherein the standard routing table comprises a ZigBee source routing table. The packet is routed using the optimal route.

  • Publication number: 20210082142
    Abstract: Techniques and architecture are disclosed for mobile transport systems configured to determine vehicle positions within an area using light-based communication signals. The system includes a plurality of luminaires located in an area and configured to transmit luminaire position data recognizable by a sensor disposed on a vehicle. The sensor receives an image of a luminaire including a light-based communication signal encoded with luminaire position data. Luminaire position data can be combined with luminaire layout information to determine a known location of the luminaire. A vehicle position relative to the known luminaire location can be determined based on mathematical relationships. Vehicle orientation relative to the area can be determined based an asymmetric fiducial pattern or multiple known luminaire locations. The system can combine a vehicle position relative to a known luminaire location with vehicle orientation relative to the area to determine a vehicle position relative to the area.

  • Patent number: 10914539
    Abstract: A heat sink includes an extruded component, a cast component, and an interface layer. The extruded component includes a first aluminum material and is configured to be coupled to a solid state light source. The cast component includes a second aluminum material overmolded onto a portion of the extruded component to form the interface layer. The interface layer is formed of at least one of the first and the second aluminum materials and abuts against and couples the extruded component to the cast component.

  • Publication number: 20210016920
    Abstract: A method and system for storing an electronic device, such as an LED 34 component having metallic conductive leads 36, 38 or a light engine 30 having LEDs soldered to a PCB 32, within a container 100 formed of paper material. The container interior surface 14, 16 is coated with a barrier 20 bounding the interior volume 18. Barrier 20 occludes an emission of sulfur-containing gas from the paper material into interior volume 18. Barrier 20 is a polymer, e.g. a thermoplastic material, either in the form of a sheet or a spray or liquid coating, preferably applied to the paper material blank 10 before it is folded into the container shape 100. Barrier 20 may further comprise electro-static discharge material.
