  • Patent number: 10277263
    Abstract: A radio receiver, configured to use an impulse UWB, includes: a reception antenna which receives the impulse UWB, a reception unit which amplifies the received impulse UWB and detects an envelope of the impulse UWB, maximum-peak and minimum-peak detection units which detect a maximum value and minimum value of the envelope, respectively, a comparator which acquires signal data from the envelope with an initial threshold value, a baseband unit which measures an error rate of the signal data, an MPU which calculates a correction value based on the error rate, and an arithmetic unit which calculates a corrected threshold value based on the maximum, minimum and correction values. The arithmetic unit transmits the corrected threshold value to the comparator. The comparator acquires the signal data from the envelope based on the corrected threshold value transmitted from the arithmetic unit.

  • Patent number: 8712678
    Abstract: Provided is a work measuring method by which a deviation quantity of a work measuring point from a reference position can be measured in a short time. A work surface is set as a reference point when the measuring point is positioned at the reference position, and a distance from a photographing device to a reference surface is set as a reference distance. A deviation quantity of the measurement point in a direction intersecting a photographing direction on the reference surface is measured by the photographing device, and a deviation quantity of the measuring point in the photographing direction is measured by a laser distance sensor. Then, based on the deviation quantity measured by the photographing device, the deviation quantity measured by the laser distance sensor, and the reference distance, a deviation quantity of the measuring point in a direction intersecting the photographing direction is calculated.
