Title
(EN) AN APPARATUS FOR DETERMINING A DIMENSION OF A SELECTED SURFACE OF AN OBJECT
(FR) DISPOSITIF POUR DÉTERMINER UNE DIMENSION D'UNE SURFACE SÉLECTIONNÉE D'UN OBJET
Abstract
(EN) There is provided an apparatus configured to be used with a processing unit for determining a dimension of a selected surface of an object, the apparatus comprising i) a piece of stretchable fabric having a shape adapted to fit the selected surface of the object such that the piece of fabric stretches proportionally to the dimension of the surface when draped thereover; ii) a plurality of uniquely identified beacon devices disposed on the piece of fabric when unstretched in accordance with a first spatial configuration known a priori, where, when the piece of fabric is draped over and stretched by the surface, the beacon devices automatically shift position and form a second spatial configuration as a function of the dimension of the surface; and ii) electronic means for detecting the second spatial configuration and for generating data representing the second spatial configuration; where the processing unit is configured to receive data associated with the first and second spatial configurations and to determine the dimension of the surface as a function thereof.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif configuré pour être utilisé avec une unité de traitement afin de déterminer une dimension d'une surface sélectionnée d'un objet. Ce dispositif comprend: i) un morceau d'étoffe étirable dont la forme est conçue pour épouser la surface sélectionnée de l'objet, de sorte que ladite étoffe étirable s'étire proportionnellement à la dimension de cette surface quand elle est drapée sur celle-ci ; ii) une pluralité de dispositifs de balise identifiés de façon unique, placés sur le morceau d'étoffe quand celui-ci n'est pas étiré, selon une première configuration spatiale connue a priori, de sorte que lorsque le morceau d'étoffe est drapé sur la surface et étiré par celle-ci, les dispositifs de balise changent automatiquement de position et forment une deuxième configuration spatiale en fonction de la dimension de ladite surface ; et ii) des moyens électroniques pour détecter la deuxième configuration spatiale et produire des données représentant celle-ci. L'unité de traitement est configurée pour recevoir des données associées aux première et deuxième configurations spatiales et déterminer la dimension de la surface en fonction de celles-ci.
