||PCT/NO2014/050131||ICD SOFTWARE AS||SALEN, Ingolf Martin|
Apparatus (100) and method for providing active motion compensation control of an articulated gangway (200) which comprises at least one fixed part fixedly mounted on a sea going vessel, a movable part being movable relative to the fixed part, and at least one actuator for moving the movable part relative to the fixed part. A first position reference device provides position and attitude information (m) of the vessel referenced to earth. A second position reference device provides position and attitude information (y) of the movable part referenced to the gangway. An actuator driver generates an actuator control output in response to a regulator signal (R). An active motion compensation controller device receives the position and attitude information m and y, an operator control input (J), and the velocity information (ẏ) of the movable part. A differential kinematic (DiffKin) device compute and outputs a current position (p) and velocity (v) of the gangway endpoint from m and y. An active motion compensation (AMC) device computes and outputs a reference position (p̅) and velocity (v̅) of the gangway endpoint from J, p and v computed by the DiffKin, An inversekinematic (Inv) device computes and outputs a position reference ( α ) and velocity reference (α̇ ) of the gangway endpoint from ̅p and v̅ computed by the AMC. A regulator (Regulator) device computes and outputs said regulating signal (R) in response to inputs of said a position reference ( α ) and velocity reference (α ̇) computed by the AMC.

The invention concerns generally an opener, more particularly a system for splash proof tins. It is an objective of the present invention to provide a system for and a method for (manufacturing) splash proof tin openers. It is also an objective that this can be made manually and just by using one hand for holding the tin and one hand for opening it. It is very much to desire to do this without using additional aiding means beyond what is following the tin. The present invention achieves the objective stated above by arranging a first and a second opener in opposite sides of a lid region defined by a surrounding weakened region, so that when a user opens the lid towards a common limited portion along the long sides of the contour, the lid can be removed without releasing tension forces.
