  • Patent number: 10061287
    Abstract: This disclosure relates to an apparatus for monitoring a usage of an item. The usage characterises a physical handling of the item. The apparatus comprises a sensor configured to measure the usage of the item and to generate usage data based on the measured usage; a processing unit configured to determine based on the generated usage data a characteristic indicative of the usage of the item; and a wireless communication unit configured to transmit the determined characteristic indicative of the usage of the item and/or the generated usage data.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: December 9, 2014
    Date of Patent: August 28, 2018

  • Patent number: 8712742
    Abstract: The present invention proposes methods, devices and computer program products. To this extent, there is defined a set X including N distinct parameter values x_i for at least one input parameter x, N being an integer greater than or equal to 1, first measured the physical quantity Pm1 for each of the N distinct parameter values x_i of the at least one input parameter x, while keeping all other input parameters fixed, constructed a Vandermonde matrix VM using the set of N parameter values x_i of the at least one input parameter x, and computed the model W for emulating the physical quantity P based on the Vandermonde matrix and the first measured physical quantity according to the equation W=(VMT*VM)?1*VMT*Pm1. The model is iteratively refined so as to obtained a desired emulation precision. The model can later be used to emulate the physical quantity based on input parameters or logs taken from the field and thereby support device design optimization.

  • Publication number: 20130013270
    Abstract: The present invention proposes methods, devices and computer program products in relation to providing for establishing a model W for emulating a physical quantity P which depends on at least one input parameter x. To this extent, there is defined a set X including N distinct parameter values x_i for said at least one input parameter x, N being an integer greater than or equal to 1, first measured the physical quantity Pm1 for each of the N distinct parameter values x_i of the at least one input parameter x, while keeping all other input parameters fixed, constructed a Vandermonde matrix VM using said set of N parameter values x_i of said at least one input parameter x, and computed the model W for emulating the physical quantity PE based on the Vandermonde matrix and the first measured physical quantity according to the equation W=(VMT*VM)?1*VMT*Pm1. The model is iteratively refined so as to obtained a desired emulation precision.
