Title
(EN) APPARATUS, METHOD, AND SYSTEM FOR ROADWAY LIGHTING USING SOLID-STATE LIGHT SOURCES
(FR) APPAREIL, PROCÉDÉ ET SYSTÈME POUR ÉCLAIRAGE DE CHAUSSÉES À L'AIDE DE SOURCE LUMINEUSES À SEMI-CONDUCTEURS
Abstract
(EN)
Disclosed herein are apparatus, methods, and systems for illuminating roadways, paths, tunnels, bridges, and areas adjacent to such in a manner which minimizes glare and/or other adverse lighting effects commonly experienced by night-time drivers. According to aspects of the invention, horizontal and vertical aiming of a plurality of solid-state light sources permits projected light from a fixture to be tailored to roadway features (e.g., bends in the road) and in some cases, permits the mounting height of fixtures to be reduced which can make the envisioned system a cost-effective alternative to traditional roadway lighting.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un appareil, des procédés et des systèmes pour éclairer des chaussées, des chemins, des tunnels, des ponts et des aires adjacentes à ceux-ci d'une manière qui réduit au minimum l'éblouissement et/ou autres effets lumineux gênants éprouvés communément par les chauffeurs durant la nuit. Selon des aspects de l'invention, l'orientation horizontale et verticale d'une pluralité de sources lumineuses à semi-conducteurs permet à une lumière projetée d'une installation fixe d'être adaptée aux caractéristiques de la chaussée (par exemple, virages de la chaussée) et permet, dans certains cas, de réduire la hauteur de montage des installations fixes, ce qui peut faire du système envisagé une solution de rechange économique pour l'éclairage classique des chaussées.
