Title: SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR LIGHTING CONTROL
Abstract:
A lighting control system (1) and a method for controlling a lighting function from a light source (2) are provided. The lighting control system (1) comprises a transmitter (4) for transmitting a probing signal (5) within a transmitting range and a plurality of receivers (6) for receiving a return signal (7). The return signal (7) is a part of the probing signal (5) that is reflected against a target (8) present within the transmitting range. A processing unit (9) is in communication with the plurality of receivers (6), wherein the processing unit (9) is configured to predictively estimate the location of the target (8) based on the return signal (7). Moreover, the processing unit (9) is configured to control the lighting function of the light source (2) in accordance with the predictively estimated location of the target (8).
