Claim of US Patent No. 10,161,599

1. A motor control system, comprising:a motor driver, configured to cause changes in a physical position of an automated luminaire;
a motion sensor mechanically coupled to the drive system and configured to detect changes in the physical position of the automated luminaire; and
a processor, electrically coupled to the motion sensor and the motor driver and configured to:
determine changes in acceleration of the automated luminaire;
determine resonance-induced changes in the physical position of the automated luminaire; and
create drive signals for the motor driver to counter the determined resonance-induced changes in the physical position of the automated luminaire based on premeasured resonance characteristics of the automated luminaire that are stored in a memory of the automated luminaire.
