Title (EN) CAPACITIVE PROXIMITY SENSING
(FR) DÉTECTION DE PROXIMITÉ CAPACITIVE
Abstract:
(EN) A capacitive proximity sensor may include a proximity sensing capacitor to provide a voltage output based on a voltage input, the capacitor including a ground plane and an electrode loop capacitively coupled to the ground plane. The proximity sensor may include a processor to detect an object proximity based on a change in the voltage output. This proximity sensor provides automated detection of a person, and thereby reduces the need for a vehicle occupant or child caregiver to activate a sensor by pressing a button. The use of a capacitance-based proximity sensor reduces issues associated with fabric, clothing, or other materials separating the proximity sensor from a person.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un capteur de proximité capacitive qui peut comprendre un condensateur de détection de proximité pour fournir une sortie de tension sur la base d'une entrée de tension, le condensateur comprenant un plan de masse et une boucle d'électrode couplée de façon capacitive au plan de masse. Le capteur de proximité peut comprendre un processeur pour détecter une proximité d'objet sur la base d'un changement de la sortie de tension. Ce capteur de proximité permet une détection automatisée d'une personne, et réduit ainsi la nécessité qu'un occupant de véhicule ou un soignant d'enfant active un capteur par pression d'un bouton. L'utilisation d'un capteur de proximité à base de capacité réduit les problèmes associés à un tissu, un vêtement ou d'autres matériaux séparant le capteur de proximité d'une personne.
