Claim of US Patent No. 10,485,076

1. An illumination control method of an automatic illumination control apparatus including an illuminance calculator, a contribution calculator, and a luminance calculator, the illumination control method comprising:calculating, by the illuminance calculator, illuminances of a plurality of lighting apparatuses on at least one flat target surface on the basis of information regarding the lighting apparatuses stored in a database and flat target surface information received from a user;
calculating, by the contribution calculator, an illuminance contribution of each of the lighting apparatuses on the at least one flat target surface on the basis of the illuminances of the lighting apparatuses on the at least one flat target surface; and
calculating, by the luminance calculator, a luminance value of each of the lighting apparatuses on the basis of a target illuminance received from the user and the illuminance contribution of each of the lighting apparatuses to thereby control a luminance of each of the lighting apparatuses for luminance of the lighting apparatuses.
