  • Patent number: 8479986
    Abstract: An RFID-based book return apparatus has dual touch screen and operation interface that conforms to a standard for barrier-free design. It has the following features: automatically detecting RFID tags attached on the identification cards of borrowers and attached to books to be returned, and enabling a panel covering a book-return gate to open; adopting a high-density optical sensor array to prevent the borrower's hand from being clamped accidentally by the cover panel of the book-return gate; enabling an access panel of the book return apparatus to open/close automatically according to the RFID tag detection book return apparatus, facilitating the maintenance and repair of the book return apparatus; preventing any components, papers and books in the book return apparatus from wet damage due to rainfall or moisture by installing a waterproof device on the RFID-based book return apparatus.

  • Publication number: 20120136604
    Abstract: A method and an apparatus for estimating 3D attitude are disclosed. The method comprises following steps. A set of current angular velocity, a set of current magnetic flux and a set of acceleration of a carrier are sensed. A set of estimated attitude angles are estimated according to the set of current angular velocities, a set of history attitude angles and a motion model. A disturbance parameter is calculated according the set of current magnetic flux and a set of history magnetic flux. It is determined whether the disturbance parameter is more than a disturbance threshold or not. If yes, the set of estimated attitude angles are updated according to the set of current accelerations not the set of current magnetic flux. If not, the set of estimated attitude angles are updated according to the set of current accelerations and the set of current magnetic flux.

  • Publication number: 20100250020
    Abstract: A space sensor apparatus suitable for a mobile carrier is provided. The space sensor apparatus includes a posture angle calculation module, a position calculation module, and a processing system. The posture angle calculation module calculates the current posture angles of the mobile carrier corresponding to different direction axes in a space according to signals input by one or multiple sensors. The position calculation module calculates the current position of the mobile carrier in the space according to the posture angles and an acceleration parameter and outputs a positioning information to the processing system. The processing system further obtains an environment information through a mechanical wave transceiver. After that, the processing system generates a real-time calculation information for controlling the movement track of the mobile carrier in the space according to the positioning information and the environment information.

  • Publication number: 20100164807
    Abstract: A system and a method for estimating a state of a carrier are provided. The system includes the carrier, an electromagnetic wave sensing device, a motion sensing device, and a controller. The electromagnetic wave sensing device detects an electromagnetic wave emitted by at least one feature object in an environment around the carrier. The motion sensing device detects motion information of the carrier moving in the environment. The controller estimates state information of the carrier in the environment through a probabilistic algorithm according to the electromagnetic wave and motion information detected by aforementioned sensing devices. Thereby, in the present invention, the location and posture of the carrier in the environment can be precisely estimated according to the motion information of the carrier and existing information of the environment around the same.
