  • Publication number: 20200232785
    Abstract: A first camera and a second camera oriented at different angles and spaced a separation distance to determine surface height measurements. The cameras are focused at a lens focal length to a surface area to record a captured image pair of x-y pixels having common features of the surface area. Correlation of the captured image pair is performed to measure a set of disparity distances between the common features in the captured image pair using a fiducial to assist. The set of disparity distances is converted to a set of z-height measurements with a resolution incorporating the separation distance, the lens focal length, the set of disparity distances, and a calibration error factor.

  • Publication number: 20200226480
    Abstract: A multisensory system provides both temporal and spatial coverage capacities for auto-detection of bird collision events. The system includes an apparatus having a first circuitry to capture and store a series of images or video of a blade of a wind turbine; and a memory to store the images from the first circuitry. The apparatus also has one or more sensors to continuously sense vibration of the blade or for acoustic recordings; and a second circuitry to analyze the sensor data stream and/or the series of images or video to identify a cause of the vibration and to trigger the camera(s). A communication interface transmits data from the second circuitry to another device, wherein the second circuitry applies artificial intelligence or machine learning to control sensitivity of the one or more sensors.
