  • Patent number: 10593128
    Abstract: Techniques for providing indirect local geo-positioning using AR markers are disclosed. A first moveable AR marker can be located or found by a computing device. A location of the first moveable AR marker can be known and shared with the computing device. The location of the first moveable AR marker can be based on distance between the first moveable AR marker and a fixed AR marker. A distance to the first moveable AR marker can be determined. Based on the known location of the first moveable AR marker and the distance to the first moveable AR marker from the computing device, an estimate of the location of the computing device can be determined without having line-of-sight (LOS) to the fixed AR marker.

  • Patent number: 10595383
    Abstract: A portable apparatus is provided for configuring and/or programming lighting drivers without mains power application. An apparatus housing comprises first and second connectors and an antenna. During a first mode wherein the first connector is coupled to an external computing device, a battery receives and stores power therefrom, and a first controller receives and stores at least driver configuration settings therefrom. When the external device is disconnected the battery powers the apparatus, which polls a transceiver circuit to detect a driver antenna proximate to the apparatus antenna. The apparatus housing is configured to mount to a luminaire comprising the detected driver, wherein the second connector is coupled to the driver and the battery provides power to a driver controller. The first controller also during this second mode transfers the stored at least driver configuration settings to the driver controller via the operably proximate antennae, for example via bidirectional negotiations therewith.

  • Publication number: 20200082562
    Abstract: A system may include a camera, a display, one or more memories, and one or more processors communicatively coupled to the one or more memories. The system may output a bounding shape for presentation on the display. The bounding shape may be superimposed on an image being captured by the camera and presented on the display. The bounding shape may bound an object in the image. The system may determine 3D coordinates of an intersection point associated with the bounding shape. The intersection point may be a point where a projection of the bounding shape into 3D space intersects with a horizontal plane identified in the image. The system may determine 2D coordinates for presentation of an augmented reality object on the display based on the 3D coordinates of the intersection point, and may superimpose a representation of the augmented reality object on the image based on the 2D coordinates.

  • Publication number: 20200082325
    Abstract: The disclosed invention includes methods and systems for tracking a moveable asset. Embodiments include receiving, from a stationary receiver, an indication of a first signal strength of a beacon signal originating from a beacon attached to a moveable asset, and an identifier of the beacon signal. A first mobile computing device may receive an indication of a second signal strength of the beacon signal, the identifier of the beacon signal, and an indication of a location of the first mobile computing device. A normalized signal strength corresponding to the identifier may be determined based on dividing the indication of the second signal strength by the indication of the first signal strength. A location of the moveable asset may be determined based at least in part on the normalized signal strength and indication of the location of the first mobile computing device.

  • Patent number: 10588205
    Abstract: A luminaire otherwise lacking connectivity is provided hereby with an isolated method for connecting to a lighting control system.

  • Patent number: 10565720
    Abstract: Disclosed embodiments include methods and systems for utilizing a structured projection pattern to perform depth detection. In some instances, the structured projection pattern forms a dot pattern, which is projected by a projector, wherein the projector includes one or more infrared (IR) light dot pattern illuminators for projecting an IR light dot pattern to a surrounding environment. The IR dot pattern light that is at least partially reflected off one or more objects in the surrounding environment is detected by one or more cameras attached to a head-mounted display (HMD). The HMD, which is physically untethered from the projector, utilizes the captured IR dot pattern light reflections to track movement of the HMD and/or perform depth detection of one or more objects in the environment surrounding the HMD.
