    Collision avoidance apparatus ( ) is mounted on a host vehicle ( ) to detect the presence of an adjacent vehicle ( ) within a monitored zone ( ). A sensor module ( ) includes a plurality of discrete sensor systems for monitoring unique portions of the monitored zone ( ), each of which comprises an emitter ( ) emitting a fixed frequency modulated beam ( ) of light energy ( ) with a predetermined burst length into its unique portion of the monitored zone ( ), and a receiver ( ) having a field of view ( ), substantially aligned with emitted beam ( ) to produce a fixed optical overlap area (A), and for sensing light energy ( ) and generating a received signal. A frequency generator ( ) produces two or more predetermined different fixed frequencies for use by the emitter ( ) to emit beams ( ) at each frequency. A phase shifter ( ) produces a phase shifted reference signal with a different predetermined phase delay relationship to each fixed frequency. A mixer ( ) mixes each received signal and each phase shifted reference signal to produce demodulation signals from for each frequency.

  • US Patent:
    55866840, Dec 24, 1996
  • Filed:
    May 2, 1994
  • Appl. No.:
    8/235893
  • Inventors:
    James H. Halsey - El Dorado AR
    Scott Juds - Everett WA
    James W. Erwin - El Dorado AR
  • Assignee:
    IDX, Inc. - El Dorado AR
  • International Classification:
    G07F 1106
  • US Classification:
    221 90
  • Abstract:
    A vending apparatus of the type having drop shelves, wherein the shelves are retained in an upright position by a solenoid, and wherein, when so positioned, the solenoid forms a series electrical circuit with the shelf, such that the position of the shelf can be tested by testing the integrity of this series electrical circuit. The vending apparatus can be equipped with an acoustic input, such that upon receiving a particular acoustic input signal, the machine will automatically test the position of the shelves by testing the shelf/solenoid circuit, and in this way, an inventory of the contents of the vending machine can be performed.
  • Method And Apparatus For Testing Photoelectric Circuits

    view source
  • US Patent:
    49908952, Feb 5, 1991
  • Filed:
    May 15, 1989
  • Appl. No.:
    7/351793
  • Inventors:
    Scott M. Juds - Everett WA
  • Assignee:
    Opcon, Inc. - Everett WA
  • International Classification:
    G08B 2100
  • US Classification:
    340635
  • Abstract:
    The operability of a photoelectric sensor is tested by creating both an ON TEST and an OFF TEST. During the ON TEST a test light source, such as a light-emitting diode (LED), located in the vicinity of the light-detecting elements of the photoelectric sensor, is enabled to be energized. Alternatively, the light-detecting elements of the photoelectric sensor are by-passed and the output of the light-detecting elements directly energized. The ON TEST LED (or the by-pass) is interconnected with the circuit that controls the energization of the normal or operational light source(s) of the photoelectric sensor such that the ON TEST LED will only ignite (or the by-pass will only operate) if current flows through the operational light source(s). If the operational light source(s) are damaged and, thus, current cannot flow, the ON TEST LED will not light (or the by-pass will not produce an energizing voltage). A fault is indicated if the sensor output does not indicate the detection of light when the ON TEST is being conducted.
  • Photoelectric Compressed Analog Signal Strength Indicator

  • US Patent:
    48516600, Jul 25, 1989
  • Filed:
    Jan 12, 1988
  • Appl. No.:
    7/143354
  • Inventors:
    Scott M. Juds - Everett WA
    Robert J. Jackson - Bothell WA
  • Assignee:
    Opcon, Inc. - Everett WA
  • International Classification:
    H01J 4014
  • US Classification:
    250214H
  • Abstract:
    A compressed analog signal strength indicator that produces a light signal proportional in intensity to the relative alignment of an associated photoelectric transmitter and photoelectric receiver pair is disclosed. A sensor (10) detects a light signal (18) received from the associated photoelectric transmitter and produces an electrical signal. A nonlinear circuit (12) compresses the electrical signal and supplies an output to a peak hold circuit (13), which controls the current flow to an indicator (14). A threshold detection loop, which includes: a demodulator (15); an integrator (16); and, a comparator (17), senses the amplified signal of sensor (10) and produces a noticeable step increase in the brightness of the indicator (14) when the light signal (18) is first detected by the sensor (10).

    Nov 30, 1993
  • Appl. No.:
    8/159992
  • Inventors:
    Scott Juds - Everett WA
    Paul Mathews - Langley WA
  • Assignee:
    Auto-Sense, Limited - Denver CO
  • International Classification:
    G01V 904
  • US Classification:

    G08G 116
  • US Classification:
    340904
  • Abstract:
    A method of defining a sensing system for detecting the presence of an object in a volume of space under surveillance by determining the optimal placement of a plurality of energy beams which are projected into the volume which comprises the steps of (A) placing the object at a preselected position within the space; (B) directing a plurality of sample beams of energy, which have a predetermined orientation, from a source onto the object; (C) detecting the reflections of the sample beam energy from points on the object by energy detectors; (D) recording the preselected position of the object, the predetermined orientation of sample beams, and the detection status of the energy detectors; (E) changing the equatorial and azimuthal angles of each of the beams and repeating steps (B), (C) and (D); (F) moving the source of the sample beams relative to the object; (G) repeating steps (B) through (F) to produce spatial maps of the locations at which the object is positioned when each of the energy detectors detect reflected sample beam energy; and (H) using the spatial maps so produced to select the optimal orientation of a set of energy beams which will maximize the detection probability of an object located in the volume of space under surveillance. This method is repeated for a plurality of different vehicles.
  • Noise-Insensitive, Photoelectric Transceiver Including A Digital Stability Indicator

    view source
  • US Patent:
    52431819, Sep 7, 1993
  • Filed:
    Jun 5, 1992
  • Appl. No.:
    7/894712
  • Inventors:
    Vadim Bondarev - Bellevue WA
    Scott M. Juds - Seattle WA
  • Assignee:
    Eaton Corporation - Cleveland OH
  • International Classification:
    H01J 4014
  • US Classification:
    250214B
  • Abstract:
    This invention provides a photoelectric transceiver (10) for detecting the presence and absence of objects (16) in a selected region (12). The transceiver (10) includes a light source (18), a light sensor (22), and electronic circuitry (13). The transceiver (10) generates a timing signal (MDCLK) that synchronizes its operation. In synchrony with the timing signal, the transceiver emits pulses of light (14) into the selected region (12) and senses light (24) coming from the selected region. When an object (16) is present in the selected region (12), the emitted light pulses (14) are reflected back to the transceiver (20). Based upon the light sensed, the transceiver generates an output (OUTOD) indicating whether or not an object is present. The transceiver includes three features that reduce the effect of interfering noise on the output (OUTOD). First, the output (OUTOD) is generated by a digital count hysteresis process to reduce the effect of random noise.
