Magnetic acoustic localisation

Wireless localisation systems aim at finding the 1D, 3D or even 6D positions of one or several objects in a defined detection space. For such systems CEDRAT TECHNOLOGIES has developed innovative active detection techniques using both emitters and receivers, based on either magnetic or acoustic effects.  

Typical new applications are:

  • underground urban pipes localisation based on low-frequency acoustic emission
  • object localisation and identification using tags based on Magnetic Resonant Sensors
  • 6D localisation for Computed Assisted Medical Interventions in surgery and robotics ...
  • 1m-range 6D Magnetic Alignment Localisation & Tracking (MALT) System for XRay imaging

Description

In the frame of ROXTAR, a MINALOGIC project dedicated to develop the next generation of XRay sensor for medical application, it has been spotted by our partner TRIXELL the interest to develop the capability of a blinded alignment between the imager and Xray emitter. Cedrat Technologies (CTEC) designed and developed an accurate contactless magnetic long range (1.5 m) alignment function, based on magnetic technologies.

Applications

Magnetic alignement, localisation, tracking, detection, X-Ray machines
