  • Patent number: 4441854
    Abstract: Damage to tools and/or equipment (such as measuring equipment) mounted on industrial robot systems or other positioning systems tending to drop when electrical power is cut off, is eliminated by auxiliary equipment which prevents such dropping.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: August 5, 1981
    Date of Patent: April 10, 1984
    Assignee: Robotic Vision Systems, Inc.
    Inventors: Paul Di Matteo, Joseph Ross
  • Patent number: 4392182
    Abstract: An arrangement is disclosed, in form of various embodiments, for more rapid scanning of an addressed point in space with programmable angular relationships, using either merely rotary motion for angle and reduced motion for position in two or three dimensions, or simply rotary motion for displacement with a consistent angular relationship in two or three dimensions.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: June 12, 1981
    Date of Patent: July 5, 1983
    Assignee: Solid Photography, Inc.
    Inventor: Paul Di Matteo
  • Patent number: 4357108
    Abstract: A method for reproducing an object surface wherein a time succession of spatially encoded different radiant energy patterns are projected at the object surface and records are made of the object surface during such projections from two or more spatially separated locations. The sets of records recorded at the separate spatial locations are then utilized to determine the spatial points on the object surface.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: June 6, 1980
    Date of Patent: November 2, 1982
    Assignee: Robotic Vision Systems, Inc.
    Inventors: Howard K. Stern, Joseph A. Ross, Paul Di Matteo
  • Patent number: 4335962
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for determining spatial information regarding the points on an object situated in an object space wherein substantially planar laterally spaced diverging radiant energy beams are applied to the object space and a recording means records the reflected radiant energy in such space from a position whereat the radiant energy from points in the space and along the radiant energy beams is uniquely defined.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: July 20, 1979
    Date of Patent: June 22, 1982
    Assignee: Robotic Vision Systems, Inc.
    Inventors: Paul Di Matteo, Joseph A. Ross
  • Patent number: 4018448
    Abstract: There is disclosed a rotatable record for use in the artificial reproduction of sounds, such as musical notes, tones, chords, words, voice phonemes or the like, in which there is at least one endless data track on at least part of which there is recorded one or more sounds to be reproduced and, associated spatially with the sound track, is an endless track on which is recorded information indicating the locations of the component parts of the recorded sound.
