Title (EN) VISION SYSTEM TO CALCULATE A FLUID VOLUME IN A CONTAINER
(FR) SYSTEME DE VISION DESTINE A CALCULER UN VOLUME DE FLUIDE DANS UN CONTENANT
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Broadly speaking the present invention is directed to a system for calculating a volume of fluid that is disposed within a container. The system includes (1) an imaging device that captures and stores an image of at least the volume of fluid in the container; (2) a background disposed behind the container so that at least the volume of fluid in the container is disposed in front of the background; and (3) a processor that performs at least one operation on the stored image to calculate the volume of the fluid within the container.
(FR)L'invention concerne un système destiné à calculer un volume de fluide disposé dans un contenant. Ledit système comporte (1) un dispositif d'imagerie capturant et stockant une image d'au moins le volume de fluide dans le contenant ; (2) un arrière-plan disposé dans le contenant de telle manière qu'au moins le volume de fluide dans le contenant soit disposé en face de l'arrière-plan ; et, (3) un processeur réalisant au moins une opération sur l'image stockée afin de calculer le volume de fluide dans le contenant.
