Title: METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR DETERMINING A FILL LEVEL OF A STORAGE CONTAINER
Abstract:
A method for determining a fill level of a storage container is proposed. The method includes the generation of a magnetic excitation field. The magnetic excitation field is designed to excite contents of the storage container for the purpose of generating a magnetic response field. The method also includes the determination of at least one measured value for the magnetic response field. The method also includes the determination of the fill level of the storage container on the basis of a position of the storage container and a comparison of the at least one measured value with reference measured values. A fill level of the storage container is assigned to each of the reference measured values.
