  • Publication number: 20180376558
    Abstract: The invention provides a lighting unit, comprising a light source and a light sensor arrangement. An optical feedback path is provided from the light source (or another light source in the same overall system) to the light sensor arrangement. The light source is turned on in response to an external input and is maintained on as a result of the optical feedback path. This lighting unit can be turned on using an signal such as an optical signal which is received from an external source, and then maintained on using optical feedback from the light source itself. This makes it possible to control a lighting unit area such as a wall using an external device such as a torch or laser pointer, without the need for complex electronic protocols.

  • Patent number: 10085329
    Abstract: A lighting device (100) is provided comprising optically transmissive emitters and receivers. The receivers are configured to receive power via an optical signal transmitted from a light source (102). Furthermore, the receiver is provided with functionality for converting the optical signal to electrical power and supply an emitter with the electrical power. The optical signal may further comprise an address such that a receiver-emitter pair of the device may be wirelessly individually addressed and controlled. The optical signals of the device are not guided but are free to propagate through optically transmissive receivers, optically transmissive emitters or other optically transmissive materials of the lighting device. This enables a lighting device which provides new light effects in a simple manner.
