Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) have emerged as a prime candidate for the light source of the future. To enable easy user interaction with a future lighting system consisting of many LEDs, this paper proposes a method to accurately measure and estimate the local light contributions of a large set of LEDs. This is enabled through tagging the light of each LED with an unique identifier. To this end, we propose a new family of modulation and multiple access schemes in this paper, named code-time division multiple access-pulse position modulation (CTDMA-PPM) and CTDMA-pulse width modulation (CTDMA-PWM). These schemes satisfy illumination constraints, are compatible with the commonly used PWM dimming of LEDs, and meet the multi-signal separation requirements for simultaneous measurement of illumination strengths. Based on these modulation methods, the paper develops algorithms to estimate illumination. Finally, performance analyses show that even for a very large number of LEDs, the sensing performance of the proposed system satisfies the requirements up to an adequate range.
