  • Publication number: 20190056255
    Abstract: A subject behavior monitoring device is for monitoring the behavior of a subject based on their usage of a plurality of fluid outlets of a fluid supply system in a building. An acoustic measurement unit is adapted to generate an acoustic monitoring signal which varies in dependence on a fluid flow from the plurality of fluid outlets. A signal processor processes the acoustic monitoring signal and is adapted to detect usage of each of the plurality of fluid outlets and determine which usages were carried out by the subject being monitored. In this way, the behavior of a subject, in terms of their usage of fluid outlets, such as water taps and gas appliances, can be detected and also discriminated from other occupiers of the building in which the subject is resident.

  • Patent number: 9268121
    Abstract: A sensor device and a method for a double telecentric optical system includes a single focusing element, such as a lens. The device and method further include a mirror element arranged at a focal point of the single focusing element to reflect incoming light rays back to the single focusing element. The incoming and reflected light rays pass through different parts of the single focusing element to allow for a spatially separated arrangement of an object and its image.

  • Patent number: 8952888
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method for conveying an emotion to a person being exposed to multimedia information, such as a media clip, by way of tactile stimulation using a plurality of actuators arranged in a close vicinity of the person's body, the method comprising the step of providing tactile stimulation information for controlling the plurality of actuators, wherein the plurality of actuators are adapted to stimulate multiple body sites in a body region, the tactile stimulation information comprises a sequence of tactile stimulation patterns, wherein each tactile stimulation pattern controls the plurality of actuators in time and space to enable the tactile stimulation of the body region, and the tactile stimulation information is synchronized with the media clip. An advantage with the present invention is thus that emotions can be induced, or strengthened, at the right time (e.g. synchronized with a specific situation in the media clip).

  • Patent number: 8723471
    Abstract: This invention relates to a servo system for operating an exoskeleton adapted to encircle an object of interest and for supplying a force thereon. A servomotor is coupled to a power source and operates the position of the exoskeleton and thus the force exerted by the exoskeleton on the object of interest. A measuring unit measures a raw driving current signal Iraw supplied by the power source to drive the servomotor. A low pass filter applies a low pass frequency filtering on the measured a filtered current signal Ifiltered. A processing unit determines an actuated current signal Iactuated based on the servomotor setting parameters, where Iactuated indicates the contribution to Iraw from the servomotor when operating the position of the exoskeleton. The processing unit also determines a driving force current signal Iforce indicating the force exerted by the exoskeleton on the object of interest, where Iforce is proportional to the difference between Ifiltered and Iactuated.

  • Publication number: 20130134293
    Abstract: The invention relates to a sensor device (100) in which the spatial distribution of an input light (L1) emission from a light emitting area (121, 122) of a light source (120) can selectively be changed. The input light is propagated through an optical system (110) to produce some output light (L2). Changes of the input light are taken into account when the detected output light (L2) is evaluated. Thus it is for example possible to detect and/or eliminate optical disturbances occurring in the optical path outside an object region (3). The light source (120) may particularly comprise a plurality of a light emitting segments (121, 122) that can selectively be switched on or off.
