Title (EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR DETERMINING THE POSITION OF SENSOR ELEMENTS IN A SENSOR ARRAY
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ DE DÉTERMINATION DE LA POSITION D'ÉLÉMENTS DE CAPTEUR DANS UN RÉSEAU DE CAPTEURS
Abstract:
(EN) Systems and methods are provided for determining the position of sensor elements in an sensor system (1000). The sensor system includes a plurality of sensor elements (1040). The platform comprises a plurality of MEMS IMUs (1020), each associated with one of the sensor elements (1040), measuring the acceleration and angular rate of the sensor elements. A controller (1030) determines the position and attitude of the sensor elements (1040), based on the acceleration and angular rate measured by each of the MEMS IMUs (1020).
(FR) La présente invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés de détermination de la position d'éléments de capteur dans un système de capteurs (1000). Le système de capteurs comprend une pluralité d'éléments de capteur (1040). La plate-forme comprend une pluralité d'IMU MEMS (1020), chacun étant associé à l'un des éléments de capteur (1040), mesurant l'accélération et la vitesse angulaire des éléments de capteur. Un dispositif de commande (1030) détermine la position et l'attitude des éléments de capteurs (1040), sur la base de l'accélération et de la vitesse angulaire mesurée par chacun des IMU MEMS (1020).
