  • Patent number: 11166220
    Abstract: To promote efficient and reliable communication of beacons among neighboring nodes in a wireless network, instead of having each node transmit beacons over its operational channel and switch to a different channel to receive its one-hop neighbors' beacons, nodes may transmit beacons over a different channel (i.e., different from the operational channel) and receive beacons over their operational channels. These outgoing “visitor beacons” may contain the usual beacon information but most importantly specify the operating channel of the transmitting node over which conventional beacons may be transmitted and received.

  • Publication number: 20210286119
    Abstract: In accordance with certain embodiments, illumination systems incorporate light-emitting diodes emitting light of different colors, as well as one or more phosphor materials, which may be engineered for the emission of light of different optical properties such as correlated color temperature. For example, phosphor materials may be interchanged or adjusted in thickness and/or intensity, and/or the relative light-emission intensities of different light-emitting diodes may be adjusted for control of the emitted light. Illumination systems may also be configured to improve areal uniformity of light emitted from solid waveguides or combinations of waveguides.
