  • Publication number: 20190281879
    Abstract: A method of automatically orienting symmetric and asymmetric produce items, such as apples for example, is provided. Individual items of produce are manipulated by a programmable manipulator within the view of one or more depth imaging cameras. Digital three dimensional characterizations of the surface of the produce items are generated by the depth imaging camera or cameras and are utilized by a computer connected to the depth imaging camera or cameras to locate the stem and blossom of each produce item. Asymmetric produce items, such as apples with dropped shoulders as well as symmetric produce items can be properly oriented and processed automatically.

  • Publication number: 20130194078
    Abstract: An antenna device in a reading device has a main radiation direction and receives a signal transmitted by a transponder. An electronic assembly calculates a direction from the reading device to the transponder using the received signal. An orientation detector in the reading device, for example an electronic compass, detects an absolute orientation of the reading device with respect to an exterior region. While the main radiation direction of the antenna is pivoted in the region and the signal strength is measured, the orientation in the region is simultaneously detected. A correlation of the orientation that is detected at a point in time to the signal strength that is measured at the same point in time allows determination of the direction to the transponder because it can be assumed that the signal has a maximum when the main radiation direction points in the direction of the transponder.

  • Publication number: 20120050016
    Abstract: A method and a system for determining the distance, speed, and/or direction of movement of a radio frequency identification (RFID) transponder, wherein a RFID reading device transmits a power supply carrier signal that is modulated during some phases to interrogate the RFID transponder. A radar module simultaneously transmits a radar signal that is received and reflected by the RFID transponder. The reflected radar signal is re-received by the radar module. The position of the RFID transponder can be determined from the reflected, received radar signal. The radar signal is transmitted especially when no interrogation data is modulated onto the power supply carrier signal, where the power supply carrier signal and the radar signal have different frequencies.

    Abstract: For monitoring a combustion process in an internal combustion engine wherein a fuel-air mixture is ignited with a high-frequency plasma it is provided to determine the impedance of the plasma. A high-frequency signal is applied to the resonator with a capacity that is so low that no arcing-over forms on the electrodes and the high-frequency current and the high-frequency voltage are measured. The impedance of the ignited mixture is determined from the high-frequency current and the high-frequency voltage.

  • Patent number: 7889119
    Abstract: Radial gap measurement on turbines by a microwave measuring method and an evaluation of a Doppler effect which varies according to the size of the radial gap is described. At least one radar sensor embodied as a transmission and reception unit is provided in the wall of a turbine housing which is radially oriented towards the centre of the turbine. The relative speed of an outer end of a turbine blade, dependent on the size of the radial gap, is evaluated many times in relation to the radar sensor during the passage of the blade end past the same, and the course of the relative speed over time on the zero crossing constitutes a measure for the radial gap on the basis of the relation between the absolute value of the relative speed and the incline thereof in the zero crossing.

  • Publication number: 20090215408
    Abstract: There is described a backscatter system comprised of a base station and of a completely passive transponder. The transponder is capable of reading out quantities from sensors and an energy stand-alone manner, of transmitting the readout quantities to the base station, and to carry out a runtime-based and thus highly precise distance measurement between a completely passive tag and base station. The power supply of the transponder ensues from the radio field emitted by the base station.
