Claim of US Patent No. 10,772,171

1. A method for controlling a light system comprising a plurality of indexed light emitting elements, comprising:determining a pose of a light emitting element of the plurality, comprising:
progressing the light system through an orientation pattern comprising: sequentially operating the plurality of light emitting elements in a high emission mode; and
storing an index of the light emitting element in association with a reference frame;
receiving a set of lighting control instructions comprising a light control vector;
determining a subset of light emitting elements of the plurality aligned with the light control vector, based on the pose and positioning of the subset of light emitting elements relative to the light emitting element; and
selectively controlling the subset of light emitting elements using a processor of the light system.
