  • Publication number: 20200329543
    Abstract: An electronic device is for identifying a LED driver which is a switched mode power supply. For example the LED driver is part of an LED luminaire. An interface (24) is adapted to be coupled to a high frequency power commutation component of the switched mode power supply, for sensing the high frequency power commutation of the switched mode power supply in driving the LED. A mapping is made between identifications of LED drivers which are switched mode power supply and characteristics of the high frequency power commutations in driving the LED of a respective switched mode power supply. Thus, a LED driver which uses a switched mode power supply can be identified corresponding to extracted characteristics of the high frequency power commutations in driving the LED. This identification can be used for energy monitoring and fault diagnosis purposes, for use in a universal low cost LED driver.

  • Publication number: 20200161739
    Abstract: The invention provides an antenna structure comprising a plurality of wire segments formed in a loop. Connecting units are provided between the wire segments, each of which is switchable between a conductive state and a reactive state. With the connecting units in the conductive state a loop antenna is formed with a first (longer) signal range and with the connecting units in the reactive state an antenna structure is formed with a second (shorter) signal range. Said reactive state is adapted to introduce a phase delay between the adjacent wire segments. This enables the same antenna to be used for long range signal communication and short range communication, for example for system configuration or commissioning. The antenna structure may be used with luminaires of a lighting system.

    Abstract: A driving event recording method and system for non-image-based car accident cause determination are disclosed. The system includes an external-event determination unit, an internal-driving-behavior-event determination unit, and a processor electrically connected to both determination units. The method is carried out as follows. The external-event determination unit generates information about an external event, and at the same time the internal-driving-behavior-event determination unit generates information about an internal driving behavior event. The processor receives the external-event information and the internal-driving-behavior-event information and uploads both pieces of information to a cloud storage space in a text or program code format for storage in a blockchain.
