  • Patent number: 10082521
    Abstract: A system that measures six degrees-of-freedom of a remote target, the system including a dimensional measuring device having a camera, the remote target including a retroreflector, at least three light markers, and a pitch-yaw sensor, the six degrees-of-freedom determined based at least in part on measured 3D coordinates of the retroreflector by the dimensional measuring device, on a captured image of the at least three light markers by the camera, and on readings of the pitch-yaw sensor.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 9122005
    Abstract: Switchable retroreflector devices that are modulated via electrowetting. The devices include an electrically-conductive polar fluid and a non-polar fluid that is immiscible with the polar fluid. The polar and the non-polar fluids differ in at least one optical property. The fluids are contained in a fluid vessel, or an array of fluid vessels. The fluids are at least partially viewable. A voltage source is configured to selectively apply an electromechanical force to the polar fluid causing repositioning and/or geometrical change of the fluids such that retroreflection in created, or suppressed, by optical refraction or by optical attenuation.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 5774690
    Abstract: A method for generating a thinned array having an optimal directional response wherein an initial population of possible element occupancy patterns is generated and a relative fitness value for each of the element occupancy patterns in the initial population is determined. Successive populations are generated by manipulating the element occupancy patterns using reproduction, crossover, mutation, elitism, and equality operators. The array response of each occupancy pattern in the successive population is evaluated to determine a fitness value for each. The process of generating and evaluating successive populations is repeated for a specified number of generations, until the maximum population fitness does not significantly increase between generations, or until the population diversity decreases.
