LumenRadio granted US patent for Cognitive Coexistence

Swedish-based LumenRadio, the technology leader company in wireless lighting controls, are pleased to announce that they have been granted the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) patent for their Cognitive Coexistence technology (US 8,457,023).

The granted patent covers all of LumenRadio’s CRMX product lines. LumenRadio’s Cognitive Coexistence technology allows the radio to ensure optimum performance even when other wireless systems are operating in the same area.

As the world becomes more and more wireless; systems such as Wi-Fi, ZigBee, Bluetooth, wireless microphones, wireless cameras, smart phones and even microwave ovens all occupy the same wireless frequency range. This frequency range is often congested and this can affect the performance of all these systems, with radio systems transmitting on top of one another or canceling each other out. CRMX enabled products constantly scan the wireless frequencies, detecting activity from other networks and where gaps are available. The radio modules then “hop” into these available frequencies, making best use of the available space whilst reducing the effects on other networks to almost zero.

“Being granted this patent shows that we have a truly innovative and unique technology, which has never been seen before. We now have our technology protected, which gives our customers confidence that they really are buying the most reliable wireless system on the market. I can reveal that we have more patents coming up in the near future”, explains Niclas Norlen, CTO of LumenRadio.
