There are 30 sensors in the space, each of which has sensor spatial
response file and use rsensor to calculate illuminance values. If I use
three phase method to conduct annual simulation. My current method is to
use: rsensor -h -vf view.vf . to generate the 10000 rays and use these
rays to calcualte V matrix. in other words, I am using three phase method
to calculate 10000 sensor points. At the end, only a single sensor values
are calculated. Is there any better way?

Thanks Andy! I was thinking to calculate all the readings for 10,000 rays
and then adding them together, which is incorrect and computational
expensive.

Hi Jia,

You can use the -c option in rcontrib to average the coefficients of the
10,000 rays.

The command would look something like this:
rsensor -rd 10000 (MoreArguments) . | rcontrib -c 10000 (MoreArguments)
model.oct > sensor.vmx
