Claim of US Patent No. 10,189,399

1. A light system comprising:a time-of-flight image sensor configured to generate a zone distance measurement;
a control unit configured to receive the zone distance measurement and to generate a control signal based on the zone distance measurement; and
a light unit configured to adapt an output of the light unit based on the control signal, wherein the time-of-flight image sensor comprises a distributed network of time-of-flight image sensors and the light unit comprises a distributed network of light units, wherein each of the distributed network of time-of-flight image sensors is arranged to be physically discrete from each of the distributed network of light units and located between adjacent ones of the distributed network of light units.
