  • Patent number: 9767356
    Abstract: A system including an interface for receiving inspection image data of an inspection image of an inspection object. The inspection image data includes information of an analyzed pixel of the inspected image and of reference pixels of the inspected image. The system further includes a memory and a processor device operatively coupled to the interface and the memory to obtain an inspected value representative of the analyzed pixel of the inspected image, and a reference value for each of the reference pixels of the inspected image. For each reference pixel, the processor devices calculates a difference between the reference value of a respective reference pixel and the inspected value of the analyzed pixel, computes a representative difference value based on the differences and determines a presence of a defect in the analyzed pixel based on the representative difference value.

    Abstract: A continuously height adjustable mattress support and apparatus therefor is disclosed. The mattress support is vertically displaceable by means of at least one drive unit for applying a vertical force to a corresponding solely vertically displaceable driven component and is stabilized during vertical displacement by at least one stabilizing means connected thereto. The driven component is connected to, or is in supporting relation with, the mattress support, so that a height of the mattress support above a floor surface is settable and continuously adjustable by means of at least one actuator associated with the at least one drive unit. In one embodiment, a locking device for preventing displacement of the mattress support following inadvertent actuation of the at least one drive unit is employed.

  • Patent number: 7990546
    Abstract: A method for characterizing a surface of a sample object, the method including dividing the surface into pixels which are characterized by a parameter variation, and defining blocks of the surface as respective groups of the pixels. The method further includes irradiating the pixels in multiple scans over the surface with radiation having different, respective types of polarization, and detecting returning radiation from the pixels in response to each of the scans. For each scan, respective block signatures of the blocks are constructed, in response to the returning radiation from the group of pixels in each block. Also for each scan, a block signature variation using the respective block signatures of the blocks is determined. In response to the block signature variation, one or more of the types of polarization for use in subsequent examination of a test object are selected.
