  • Patent number: 11170296
    Abstract: Disclosed herein is system level occupancy counting in a lighting system configured to obtain an indicator data of a RF spectrum signal (signal) generated by a number of receivers at a number of times in an area. At each respective one of the number of times, for each respective one of the receivers, apply one of a plurality of heurist algorithm heuristic algorithm coefficients to each indicator data of the signal, based on results of the application of the heuristic algorithm coefficients, generate an indicator data metric value for each of the indicator data for the respective time. The lighting system is also configured to process each of the indicator data metric value to compute a plurality of metric values for the respective time and combine the plurality of metric values to compute an output metric value for each of a plurality of probable number of occupants in the area for the respective time.

At each respective one of the number of times, for each respective one of the receivers, apply one of a plurality of heuristic algorithm coefficients to each indicator data for the respective time, based on results of the applications of the coefficients to indicator data, generate an indicator data metric value for each of the indicator data for the respective time, and process the indicator data metric values to compute an output value. The lighting system is further configured to compare the output value at each of the plurality of times with a threshold to detect one of an occupancy condition or a non-occupancy condition in the area and control the light source in response to the detected one of the occupancy condition or the non-occupancy condition in the area at each of the number of times.

  • Patent number: 10761202
    Abstract: The disclosure provides an example of a system including a radio frequency (RF) wireless communication network (network) including a plurality of nodes in an area and a computer coupled to the network. Each of the nodes includes a transmitter and a receiver. At plurality of times, each transmitter transmits RF spectrum signals (signals) and each receiver receives the signals and also generates an indicator data of a signal characteristic of the received signal propagated in the network. When each time among the plurality of times is a current time, the computer obtains the indicator data of the signal, determines a modification in the indicator data at the current time from the indicator data at a preceding time due to a movement of an occupant in the area and detect an occupancy condition in the area based on the modification in the indicator data and a parameter of a configuration of the network.

  • Patent number: 10412814
    Abstract: Disclosed herein is a lighting system including a detector, which is configure to obtain an indicator data of a RF signal. The detector compares the indicator data with a baseline indicator data to generate a difference value and determines a rate of change from the indicator data. The detector also determines a data metric based on the rate of change and the difference value and compares the data metric with a transition threshold to detect one of an occupancy condition or a non-occupancy condition in the area. The lighting system also includes a light source, which is controlled in response to the detected one of the occupancy condition or the non-occupancy condition in the area.

  • Patent number: 10238541
    Abstract: The procedures described herein may involve using one or more treatment beams to induce one or more therapeutic benefits. In some embodiments, a series of short duration light pulses may be delivered to ocular tissue at a plurality of target locations with a thermal relaxation time delay to limit the temperature rise of the target ocular tissue and thereby limit a thermal effect to only a desired portion of the ocular tissue. The thermal relaxation time delay may be roughly equivalent to a duration of a scan of the treatment beam between each of the target locations. Such procedures may be used to treat diabetic retinopathy, macular edema, and/or other conditions of the eye. The treatment beam may be delivered at each target location within a sufficiently short duration so as to produce a visual appearance of a treatment pattern on the ocular tissue of the patient's eye.
