(FR) MOTEUR D'ARTICLE CHAUSSANT DE LAÇAGE AUTOMATIQUE AYANT UN CODEUR À TAMBOUR ROTATIF
Abstract
(EN)
An article of footwear, method, and motorized lacing system includes a motor, including a motor shaft, a spool, coupled to the motor shaft, configured to spool and unspool the lace based on the turning of the motor shaft, a processor circuit, and a three-dimensional encoder. The three-dimensional encoder defines a major axis and has a surface having a tabs extending from a drum, an optical sensor, positioned within optical range of the cylindrical encoder, configured to output a signal to the processor circuit indicative of a detected one of the tabs, and a beam break, positioned between the three-dimensional encoder and the optical sensor, forming a pair of slits. The optical sensor is positioned to view the tabs through the pair of slits, wherein the processor circuit is configured to operate the motor based, at least in part, on the signal as received from the optical sensor.

L'invention concerne un article chaussant, un procédé, et un système de laçage motorisé comportant un moteur, comprenant un arbre de moteur, une bobine, accouplée à l'arbre de moteur, conçue pour enrouler et dérouler le lacet en fonction de la rotation de l'arbre de moteur, un circuit de processeur et un codeur tridimensionnel. Le codeur tridimensionnel définit un axe principal et présente une surface ayant des pattes s'étendant à partir d'un tambour, un capteur optique, positionné à l'intérieur de la plage optique du codeur cylindrique, configuré pour délivrer un signal au circuit de processeur indicatif d'une patte détectée parmi les pattes, et une rupture de faisceau, positionnée entre le codeur tridimensionnel et le capteur optique, formant une paire de fentes. Le capteur optique est positionné pour visualiser les pattes à travers la paire de fentes, le circuit de processeur étant configuré pour faire fonctionner le moteur sur la base, au moins en partie, du signal tel que reçu en provenance du capteur optique.
