  • Patent number: 11097908
    Abstract: A linear conveyor to transport an article includes a base platform provided with a stator, movers configuring the linear motor and holding members for holding an article provided on the movers. The holding member is arranged at a position which is radially outwardly apart from the traveling track of the mover by a predetermined distance. When the movers travel on a curved traveling track served by the stator, the controller controls the interval of the adjacently arranged movers to narrower than the interval when the movers travel on an immediately preceding linear traveling track, and so that when the movers travel on a linear traveling track on the stator, the interval between the adjacently arranged movers is wider than the interval when the movers travel on the immediately preceding curved traveling track, thereby setting the interval between the holding members of the adjacently arranged movers to be constant.

  • Publication number: 20210199435
    Abstract: A change in geoid height is measured easily. A geoid measurement method of the present invention executes an inertial measurement data acquiring step, a comparison data acquiring step, a state variable estimating step, and a geoid calculating step. In the inertial measurement data acquiring step, data related to velocity, position, and attitude angle is acquired as inertially-derived data based on the output of an inertial measurement part having a three-axis gyro and a three-axis accelerometer attached to a moving body. In the comparison data acquiring step, data related to velocity is acquired as comparison data from a source other than the inertial measurement part. In the state variable estimating step, state variables including a plumb line deviation are estimated by using the inertially-derived data and the comparison data to apply a Kalman filter in which the plumb line deviation is included in the state variables.
