  • Patent number: 10935521
    Abstract: A mass sensor is provided for measuring a particle mass within an aerosol. The duration of a sensing cycle is set such that a pre-set change in mass resulting from particles deposited is caused. In the absence of cleaning, the lifetime of the sensor is dependent on the total mass deposited. As a result, the lifetime is made essentially constant by this approach, because each sensing operation is made to give rise to a constant amount of deposited particle mass. This means the lifetime can be predicted more accurately.

    Abstract: The invention describes a laser sensor module (100) for particle density detection. The laser sensor module (100) comprising at least one first laser (110), at least one first detector (120) and at least one electrical driver (130). The first laser (110) is adapted to emit first laser light in reaction to signals provided by the at least one electrical driver (130). The at least one first detector (120) is adapted to detect a first self-mixing interference signal of an optical wave within a first laser cavity of the first laser (110).

  • Publication number: 20200113514
    Abstract: A method of characterizing a patient's disordered breathing during a sleeping period includes performing a first partial characterization of a time axis of an audio signal in order to learn the most prominent and highly relevant events. Only at a later stage, i.e., after sufficient observation of the highly relevant events, is a full segmentation of the entire time axis actually carried out. Linear prediction is used to create an excitation signal that is employed to provide better segmentation than would be possible using the original audio signal alone. Warped linear prediction or Laguerre linear prediction is employed to create an accurate spectral representation with flexibility in the details provided in different frequency ranges. A resonance probability function is generated to further characterize the signals in order to identify disordered breathing. An output includes a characterization in any of a variety of forms of identified disordered breathing.

  • Patent number: 10365197
    Abstract: An optical particle sensor has at least first and second threshold settings applied to an optical sensor or a sensor signal to obtain first and second optical sensor readings. The first and second optical sensor readings are processed to determine a parameter which is dependent on a type of pollution event. The parameter is used to determine from at least one of the first and second optical sensor readings a mass of all particles below a first particle size. In this way the mass of all particles below a desired size can be evaluated, even though the optical sensor may not be responsive to the smallest particles.

  • Patent number: 10363514
    Abstract: The invention provides a sensor device which comprises an input flow channel (10) for receiving a gas flow with entrained matter to be sensed. A thermophoretic arrangement (14a, 14b) is used to induce a thermophoretic particle movement from a first, warmer, region (16) of the input flow channel to a second, cooler, region (18) of the input flow channel (10). A sensor (24) comprises a particle sensor component at or downstream of the first region (16) of the input flow channel (10). The invention provides the benefit of pre-filtering (e.g. removal of most suspended solids/liquids) without the need for a physical filter that can become blocked.
