Claim of US Patent No. 10,398,001

1. A control method comprising:determining geometric information about respective geometries of respective housings of a plurality of light sources, wherein the geometric information comprises positions of one or more lighting elements on each of the plurality of light sources;
determining a photographic representation of an environment in which the plurality of light sources are provided;
determining spatial information about the plurality of light sources based on the geometric information and based on the photographic representation;
determining control information for the plurality of light sources based on the spatial information,
wherein determining the control information comprises mapping a lighting effect to the plurality of light sources based on the spatial information, and modulating timing and color space parameters of the plurality of light sources to smoothly span the lighting effect across the environment based on the spatial information; and
controlling the plurality of light sources based on the control information to operate sequentially, so as to create the lighting effect, wherein the lighting effect appears to travel across the plurality of light sources.
