  • Publication number: 20190207852
    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: 20190208605
    Abstract: A network power distribution system includes a plurality of networked digitally controlled lighting devices and a network powered network controller. Each of the digitally controlled lighting devices includes a device driver that coupled to the network. The device driver is selectively transitionable between a first operating mode in which the device driver provides a first voltage and a first current to the network and a second operating mode where the driver does not provide a voltage or current to the network. The network controller autonomously determines a number of device drivers that, in the first operating mode, at least meet the current draw of the network controller. The network controller then transitions the determined number of device drivers to the first operating mode. The network controller monitors the device drivers for faults and autonomously swaps device drivers to maintain network power.

  • Patent number: 10334703
    Abstract: A connected lighting fixture network system has a plurality of multi-channel lighting fixtures. Each lighting fixture (device) has a plurality of services that reside within an application layer of the device. A controller is coupled to the device and configured to send query and command message to the device and to receive reply messages from the device. One service available to the device is a lighting command and control service. The device is configured to receive a query message from the controller. The controller is configured to generate a lighting control and command message, which can include a channel illumination field (CIF) and an illumination payload. The CIF indicates the channels of the device to be commanded based on the status of the channels received in the first reply message. The illumination payload indicates the intended illumination level for the corresponding channel.

  • Publication number: 20190190600
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for programming a luminaire with location information, referred to herein as commissioning. Location information may include relative location information (e.g., the position of the luminaire relative to a reference point) and/or absolute location information (e.g., global coordinates for the luminaire). A commissioned luminaire can be configured to emit its location information via light-based communication (LCom). In some cases, the luminaire can be commissioned manually, by hard coding the luminaire with its location either at the luminaire itself or using a device (e.g., a smartphone, tablet, or a dedicated luminaire commissioning device) to program the luminaire with location information. In some cases, the luminaire can be commissioned automatically. In some cases, the luminaire may be configured to provide visual, aural, or tactile feedback to indicate that the luminaire has not received location data or that the luminaire has been moved.

  • Patent number: 10327303
    Abstract: A method for controlling a chromaticity of total light provided by a lighting system includes detecting the total light by a sensor system, determining a component of the total light that is attributable to uncontrolled light, and selecting a calibration for a sensor based on the uncontrolled light, and using the calibration to adjust the output of the sensor system. The calibration tables may be based on spectral responsivity of the sensors in the sensor system and calibration functions rather than physical light sources. Relative intensities of controllable light sources having different xy values are then adjusted to cause the total light provided by the lighting system to approximate a target chromaticity. A daylighting system implementing this method includes controllable light sources with different xy values. The intensities of the controllable light sources are adjusted to augment sunlight to control the chromaticity of total light provided by the daylighting system.

  • Patent number: 10327295
    Abstract: A multi string controller with independent current setting for each string is designed for solid state lighting applications. This controller can regulate multiple channels of LEDs. Each string may have a different forward voltage and current setting. A constant buck regulator is also integrated inside this controller to regulate the total current, which is fed into the LED output channels. The circuit also contains a feedback loop in order to precisely control the current passing through each string and is immune to transient conditions.
