  • Patent number: 10863602
    Abstract: There is provided a driver having a primary output, for a primary load, and an auxiliary output, for an auxiliary load. A power supply of the driver supplies power to both outputs. Connection or disconnection of an auxiliary load is determined by detecting a change in power consumption at the auxiliary output, and an action is performed by a driver controller in response to this change in power consumption.

  • Patent number: 10768271
    Abstract: A device, method and computer program for determining the distance or position of a camera relative to a light source based on an image of that light source captured by the camera. The device comprises a coded light detection module for detecting a coded light signal modulated into the light from the light source. The coded light detection module is configured to retrieve one or more physical dimensions of the light source based on the coded light signal from that light source. Further, the device comprises an image analysis module configured to determine a distance of the camera from the light source, by performing a geometric perspective calculation to compare the one or more retrieved physical dimensions with one or more apparent dimensions of the image of the light source.

  • Patent number: 10243689
    Abstract: This invention generally relates to interference mitigation, and more specifically to interference mitigation in wireless communications networks. The proposed solution takes advantage of the clear channel assessment (CCA) function used by WLAN networks. Hence, by jamming the interfering WLAN channel during a predetermined time period, the interfering WLAN network is forced to withhold transmissions on the WLAN interfering channel during a backoff period of time. The solution of the subject application makes use of this backoff period to enable a WPAN network to transmit critical information such as, but not limited to, a request for changing the current working frequency.

  • Patent number: 10091826
    Abstract: In a wireless environment, a dockee informs a docking station of the dockee's access point connection credentials and parameters in order for the docking station to become an intermediate proxy for the connection between the dockee and the access point. The docking station takes over the connection between the dockee and the access point.

  • Patent number: 9885775
    Abstract: A luminaire is provided for use in determining an orientation of a camera based on an image of the luminaire captured by the camera. The luminaire comprises a light source having an on state in which it emits light and an off state in which it does not emit light, and being of a shape having a symmetry in the off state. The luminaire also comprises a controller configured to control the light source to emit said light in the on state with a lighting effect that breaks said symmetry. A device comprising receives an image of the light source from a camera, and determines an orientation of the camera relative to the light source by performing a geometric perspective calculation based on the image of the light source. An ambiguity in the orientation is resolved by detecting the asymmetry in the light emitted by the light source.

  • Patent number: 9693410
    Abstract: Methods, apparatus, and systems are disclosed herein for projecting lighting effects (124, 224, 324, 424) carrying light messages onto surfaces. A first of one or more light-emitting diodes (LEDs, 554) of a lighting fixture (120, 220, 320, 420, 520) may be selectively energized to produce a first coded light signal conveying a first light message associable with a first location. Light emitted from the first LED may be projected onto a first surface, e.g., as a spatially-limited lighting effect. In some embodiments, a second of the one or more LEDs of the lighting fixture may be selectively energized to produce a second coded light signal conveying a second light message associable with a second location distinct from the first location. Light emitted from the second LED may be projected onto the first surface or a second surface. Alternatively, lighting effects of various shapes and hues may convey information.

  • Patent number: 9686030
    Abstract: Efficiency for mixing audio signals from one or more portable user devices in an audio system employing a number of docking station is achieved by a docking station that includes a controller for detecting the presence of an activated mixer associated with another docking station in the system. The controller activates its associated mixer when no activated mixer associated with another docking host in the system is detected. When its associated mixer is activated, the controller in the one docking station causes its associated mixer to be connected both to the audio sound system for supplying an input signal thereto and indirectly to the output(s) of the one or more portable devices. Transfer of mixing from one docking station to another in the same system upon the occurrence of a particularly defined event is also described.
