Title: (EN) SYSTEMS TO AUTOMATE ADJUSTMENT OF WATER VOLUME RELEASE TO A TOILET BOWL TO CORRESPOND TO BOWL CONTENTS, TOILETS INCLUDING THE SYSTEM AND RELATED METHODS
(ZH) 自动将释放到马桶便池的水量调节成与便池内容物一致的系统、包括这种系统的马桶以及相关方法
Abstract: front page image
(EN) A method and system having a water-flush toilet having a toilet bowl that is in fluid communication with a water source and is mounted with a sensor. The sensor includes a transmitter to transmit an ultrasonic signal and a receiver to receive an ultrasonic signal. The sensor may measure a Time of Flight (ToF) of the signal to obtain a ToF measurement. A microcontroller is electrically connected tothe sensor and may receive and process the ToF measurement using an algorithm to determine a bowl status. The toilet also includes at least one water valve that is disposed between the bowl and the water source, and that is electrically connected to the microcontroller for instructing the at least one water valve to move from a first position to a second position for a duration of time, wherein the duration of time corresponds to the bowl status.
(ZH) 一种包括冲水马桶的方法和系统,所述冲水马桶具有与水源流体连通并且安装有传感器的马桶便池。传感器包括用于发送超声信号的发射器和用于接收超声信号的接收器。传感器可测量信号的飞行时间(TOF)以获得ToF测量值。微控制器与传感器电连接,并且可接收和使用算法来处理ToF测量值以确定便池状态。该马桶还包括至少一个水阀,该水阀设置在便池与水源之间,并与微控制器电连接以指示所述至少一个水阀从第一位置移动到第二位置以持续一持续时间,其中该持续时间与便池状态相对应。
