Title (EN) METHOD OF COUPLING A MOTION SENSOR TO A PIECE OF EQUIPMENT
(FR) PROCÉDÉ DE COUPLAGE D'UN CAPTEUR DE MOUVEMENT À UN ÉQUIPEMENT
Abstract:
(EN) Method for coupling a sensor to a piece of equipment, such as a golf club, baseball bat, or tennis racket, that ensures that the sensor is in a known position and orientation relative to the equipment. Compensates and calibrates for degrees of freedom introduced in manufacturing and installation. The method may include manufacturing a sensor receiver that aligns with equipment in a fixed orientation, and that holds a sensor housing in a fixed orientation relative to the receiver. Remaining uncertainties in sensor position and orientation may be addressed using post- installation calibration. Calibration may include performing specific calibration movements with the equipment and analyzing the sensor data collected during these calibration movements.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé de couplage d'un capteur à un équipement, tel qu'un club de golf, une batte de baseball ou une raquette de tennis, qui garantit que le capteur se trouve à une position et sous une orientation connues par rapport à l'équipement. L'invention permet de compenser et de calibrer les degrés de liberté introduits lors de la fabrication et de l'installation. Le procédé peut comprendre la fabrication d'un récepteur de capteur qui s'aligne avec l'équipement sous une orientation fixe, et qui maintient un boîtier de capteur sous une orientation fixe par rapport au récepteur. Les incertitudes subsistant relatives à la position et à l'orientation du capteur peuvent être résolues à l'aide d'un étalonnage post-installation. L'étalonnage peut consister à effectuer des mouvements d'étalonnage spécifiques avec l'équipement et à analyser les données de capteur collectées lors de ces mouvements d'étalonnage.
