Title: AUTOMATED GROUPING OF MULTIPLE WIRELESSLY COMMUNICATING LAMP UNITS WITHIN A LUMINAIRE
Abstract:
A first lamp for use in a luminaire, the first lamp comprising: a transmitting circuit configured to transmit, and/or a receiving circuit configured to receive, one or more signals via a constrained signalling channel whereby propagation of the signals is constrained by a physical characteristic of the luminaire; and a controller configured to detect, based on the transmission and/or reception of these one or more signals via the constrained signalling channel, that one or more other, second components (e.g. other lamps) are present in the same luminaire as the first lamp, and to identify the one or more second components based on the transmission and/or reception of the one or more signals.
