|20130169189||Variable Operating Mode Solar Lighting System - A solar lighting system includes a record of a plurality of lighting profiles. The particular profile that governs the operation of the lights of the system at any given time is selected by each lighting element according to its determination of the time of year or season. The invention allows the more efficient use of solar energy collected at various time of the year.||07-04-2013|
|20130057181||DISTRIBUTED CONTROL INTELLIGENT LIGHTING ARRAY - An array of lights in which a coordinator collects sensed lighting transition times from each light in order to determine and select a median transition time. The individual light having the selected transition time assumes control of the lighting array, controlling and synchronizing the light transitions of the array, until the coordinator collects another group of transition times and appoints a new synchronization leader.||03-07-2013|
|20120313531||SOLAR LIGHTING RADIO COMMUNICATION METHOD AND APPARATUS - A solar-powered light assembly that communicates by radio with other assemblies is configured such that its radio is operable, in either a long period sleep mode or a short period sleep mode. When in the short period sleep mode, a network of light assemblies can collectively react relatively quickly to motion detection at one assembly. The long sleep period mode allows for conservation of power at times when the system is not intended to be responsive to motion detection.||12-13-2012|
|20120268014||Comparative Lighting Network - A network of lighting elements controlled by a control system, in which the control system receives and analyzes operating conditions from the lighting elements in the network, from which it can determine whether any lighting elements are operating at unacceptable levels. The analysis is carried out by averaging the values received from the lighting elements to determine a baseline value and determining whether any deviate from the baseline value by more than a pre-determined amount. Alternatively, the analysis may be done by finding the distribution of the values and mode value, and determining whether any individual values are outside an acceptable distribution.||10-25-2012|
|20120098669||Solar Powered Devices Using Location-Based Energy Control and Method for Operation of Solar Powered Devices - A solar powered device and a method of operating such a device to allow it to receive and store information about its physical location, from which it can determine the minimum expected solar energy levels that will be available to it. Based on the minimum expected levels, the device then limits its configurable settings to preferably enable only those configurations having maximum energy demands that can be met or exceeded by the minimum expected energy levels.||04-26-2012|
|20120020058||Solar Powered Airfield Light - A solar-powered airfield light provides high angle light up to about 90°. A solar panel is mounted atop the enclosure but does not overlie a curved transparent shoulder extending upward from the transparent generally cylindrical side walls of the enclosure. An optical element within the enclosure surrounds an LED light source so as to direct light emanating from the LED in two preferential beams, one directed to the shoulder and the other directed to the side walls. A portion of the light impinging on the curved shoulder is redirected to high angles to comply with high angle light requirements for airfield lights.||01-26-2012|
|20110242802||ADAPTIVE SOLAR POWERED SYSTEM - An apparatus for powering a load from solar energy comprises logic is coupled to the converter to control its conversion rate. A detector is coupled to the converter and detects its power output. The logic is operable to adjust the conversion rate until the solar panel operates at the smaller of a maximum power point of the solar panel and a power point of the solar panel that results in a maximum desired power and second logic adjusts the energy consumption over a period of time as a function of the energy available from the solar panel over a previous same period of time.||10-06-2011|
|20100201267||Intelligent Area Lighting System - An area lighting system is composed of a plurality of lighting elements that are responsive to the movement and progression of a user through the area. Each lighting element comprises at least one light, means for powering the lighting element, a processor, communication means and is associated with a motion sensor. Detection of a user is communicated to other lighting elements that provide an appropriate level of illumination depending on the distance from the user. The lighting elements are substantially self-configurable and may be set for either a radial proximity lighting protocol or a path network lighting protocol.||08-12-2010|
|20090058681||Method and System for the Wireless Remote Control of Marker Lights - A system for wirelessly controlling marker lights comprising a remote controller comprising a transmitter and one or more marker lights. Each of the marker lights comprise a receiver and processing means, and each of the marker lights have a configuration mode in which the processing means is adapted to cause the receiver to wirelessly receive data from the transmitter This data comprises one or more group identifiers to assign one or more groups to the marker light. In addition, the processing means of each of the marker lights is adapted to cause the receiver to wirelessly receive one or more commands from the transmitter for controlling the operation of the marker light. The processing means is adapted to carry out the command when the commands comprise the same one or more group identifiers that correspond to the one or more groups to which the marker light was assigned.||03-05-2009|
