  • Publication number: 20100321235
    Abstract: An imaging method is provided for imaging or locating an object with a wave-based sensor. A wave field emanates from the object as an object signal, with this object signal emanating from a sensor is received at a sensor position, and wherein the sensor(s) and the object assume a number of spatial positions with respect to each other and form a synthetic aperture, and an echo signal is sensed at each of these sensor positions, a number of function values is extracted from the echo signals, which are allocated to a space coordinate of the object, and a signal with a residual phase characteristic is formed from the function values. Based on a residual phase characteristic that is due to a deviation of real sensor positions from assumed or measured sensor positions, an image point, the object position or the relative movement of the object is determined.

  • Publication number: 20090215408
    Abstract: There is described a backscatter system comprised of a base station and of a completely passive transponder. The transponder is capable of reading out quantities from sensors and an energy stand-alone manner, of transmitting the readout quantities to the base station, and to carry out a runtime-based and thus highly precise distance measurement between a completely passive tag and base station. The power supply of the transponder ensues from the radio field emitted by the base station.
