  • Publication number: 20210122500
    Abstract: A sampling method includes: obtaining topographical information about a predetermined wide area by using a first sensor on a work machine; selecting a candidate area within the wide area, the candidate area is less than an area of the wide area, and setting a movement route based on the information about the wide area, the movement route allows a distal end portion of an arm provided on the work machine to reach a preparation position without coming into contact with an obstacle, the preparation position being located above the candidate area; moving the distal end portion of the arm along the movement route to the preparation position, and obtaining topographical information about the candidate area by using a second sensor on the distal end portion of the arm; and specifying a sampling point based on the information about the candidate area and performing sampling at the specified sampling point.

  • Patent number: 6811115
    Abstract: A method comprises: launching observation means configured to observe upper air environment immediately before launching an airship to acquire ambient air data on the actual conditions of the upper ambient air including altitude, pressure, wind direction, wind speed and temperature; determining an ascension profile for the airship by simulation using the ambient air data on the actual conditions of the ambient air; determining an initial quantity of Helium gas conforming to the actual conditions of the ambient air; and adjusting the quantity of Helium gas in the Helium room to the initial quantity of Helium gas to set an initial buoyancy. The method sets hull parameters for the hull of the airship to provide an ascension profile conforming to the actual conditions of the ambient air.
