  • Publication number: 20110147606
    Abstract: The deflection apparatus (1) for the deflection of electromagnetic radiation, in particular of a laser beam, includes a drive apparatus (2) and includes a beam deflection apparatus (4), in particular a mirror (4), which is arranged with the drive device (2) such that the drive apparatus (2) determines the alignment of the beam deflection apparatus (4), and includes a friction apparatus (5) which is arranged and made such that it brings about static friction or sliding friction onto the movably journaled beam deflection apparatus (4), with the drive apparatus (2) being made such that it can generate a drive force which overcomes the static friction, and includes a control apparatus (10) for the control of the drive apparatus (2).

  • Publication number: 20060209013
    Abstract: A method of controlling a machine connected to a display comprising an absolute pointing method providing a wearable apparatus (1) including an image sensor (61) worn on an operator's head (58) or ear and adjustable so that the pointing direction (57) of the image sensor (61) is congruent with the operator's focus point on said display (45) when relative head-eye movements are small. A processor (33) analyzes images (103) of the display environment taken by the image sensor (61) and determines the pointing direction (57) of the image sensor with respect to the display outline (50). The wearable apparatus (1) further includes a microphone (8) for initiating actions on said machine by audio commands. Other means for initiating actions includes detecting certain head movements and a special keyboard driver. The method further comprises means for feedback from the wearable apparatus (1) to the machine.

  • Patent number: 7108659
    Abstract: A respiratory analyzer comprises a flow module, having a flow tube through which the flow rate of gases is determined using a flow rate meter, and a computation module, in communication with the flow module, operable to determine a flow rate of respired gases. The computation module may also be operable to determine a metabolic rate of the subject.
