Title (EN) VARIABLE LIGHTING SYSTEM FOR OPTIMIZING NIGHT VISIBILITY
(FR) SYSTEME LUMINEUX VARIABLE A OPTIMISATION DE LA VISIBILITE LA NUIT
Abstract:
(EN) A variable lighting system ('VLS') for optimizing object visibility at night by setting a base level of lighting, adding a variable light to that base level of lighting, and a synchronizing the timing and sequence of the base level of lighting and the variable lighting. The variable lighting system varies light by intensity, color, direction, or a combination thereof. The variable lighting system also optionally includes a detector for detecting motion, noise, and other occurrences. The variable lighting system can be implemented as a fixed lighting source, a movable lighting source, or a vehicle mounted lighting source. The VLS improves visibility at night for viewers or motorists thereby reducing accidents and damage costs. The VLS saves energy and improves the environment and enhances quality of life by reducing light pollution and light trespass.
(FR) Ce système lumineux variable ('VLS') optimise la visibilité d'un objet la nuit en définissant un niveau de base lumineux, en ajoutant une lumière variable au niveau de base lumineux et en synchronisant la séquence du niveau de base lumineux et la lumière variable. Ce système fait varier la lumière selon l'intensité, la couleur, la direction ou leur combinaison. Il comprend éventuellement un détecteur détectant le mouvement, le bruit et d'autres apparitions. Il se présente sous forme de source lumineuse fixe, de source lumineuse mobile ou de source lumineuse montée sur un véhicule. Le VLS améliore la visibilité la nuit pour des observateurs ou des personnes motorisées, avec pour effet de réduire les accidents et les coûts des sinistres. Il économise l'énergie et améliore l'environnement, tout en garantissant une qualité de vie en raison de son niveau réduit de pollution et d'atteinte lumineuses.
