  • Publication number: 20210132195
    Abstract: A mobile apparatus for capturing an object space includes a frame and at least one single scanner mounted on the frame and a multiple scanner mounted on the frame above the single scanner. This multiple scanner has a plurality of emission units integrated in one component, a receiver for detecting reflected rays, and a scanning device for changing the emission directions of the signal beams of the emission units. Furthermore, the mobile apparatus has an evaluation device which is designed to generate and output in real time, at least from the reflected rays detected by the receiver, a graphical representation of those areas of the object space through which the mobile apparatus can be moved and/or has been moved. Finally, the mobile apparatus has a data interface designed to output data to a memory device for post-processing. A corresponding method for capturing an object space is also disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20120155777
    Abstract: A computer implemented signal processing method to perform a cross-calculation between a first and a second signal by performing a cross-correlation for segments of said first signal with said second signal to obtain a plurality of partial cross correlation functions, obtaining a combined cross-correlation function by combining said partial cross-correlation functions to obtain a combined cross-correlation function, applying an outlier detection or outlier removal approach to identify or remove those segments which are disturbed or corrupted, and re-combining said partial cross-correlation functions without the ones which have been identified as disturbed or corrupted to obtain a less disturbed or less corrupted final cross-correlation function.

  • Patent number: 8106823
    Abstract: A receiver operating with satellite navigation signals estimates its position by means of a multiplicity of signals each transmitted by another satellite. A subset of satellites is used to calculate the position estimation and checking the pseudoranges of all received satellite signals that did not contribute to this particular estimate with respect to their consensus with this estimate. The subset with the best consensus is determined by combining the subsets with respect to the consensus with all ranging sources in view. Consensus in this context refers to pseudoranges that coincide in a position solution in a consistent way. The satellites with a bias in pseudorange higher than a threshold are identified as faulty satellites, after knowing all consistent satellites. This identifying information is then used to exclude the faulty satellites for the determination of position, velocity, and time in the receiver.

  • Publication number: 20110122315
    Abstract: A method determining the temporal relationship between a first video sequence and a second video sequence, said method comprising: obtaining from said first video sequence a first parameter such that the evolvement of said first parameter over time corresponds to the change of the entropy of said first video sequence over time; obtaining from said second video sequence a second parameter such that the evolvement of said second parameter over time corresponds to the change of the entropy of said second video over time; matching the evolvement of said first parameter over time to the evolvement of said second parameter over time to thereby determine the temporal relationship between the two video sequences.
