ABSTRACT
It is a well-known factor that our activities of daily life play an important role for staying healthy. In order to validate different motion analysis techniques for clinical and therapeutic purposes Fraunhofer FIRST set up a sensor-controlled testbed. The technologies investigated include time-of-flight cameras, bio-inspired optical stereo-sensors, laminar pressure and proximity sensors as well as body-worn devices including inertial sensors. This paper presents these technologies and sketches the process of sensor fusion and motion analysis being under implementation in the Fraunhofer Motion Technology Validation Lab.

    Current-mode neutron time-of-flight detectors (e.g., a scintillator and photomultiplier tube) are frequently used as sensitive detectors for laser fusion neutron yield measurements. For very low yields, as in the measurement of secondary (dt) neutron, s from deuterium targets, some subtle...

    A new scintillation-type anion time-of-flight detector of high transmittance is reported. The precursor type of this detector, which is known as the Daly detector, is often used in molecular beam experiments in combination with time-of-flight mass spectrometry. We present an improved and simple...

    In the present paper we describe an experiment performed on the reaction 238U + 4He (40 MeV) using a two-arm TOF-E (time-of-flight vs. energy) spectrometer with micro- channel plate detectors and mosaics of PIN diodes. This experiment has aimed at searching for fine structures in the total...

    We realized a \ery fast and large Superconducting Strip Line Detector based on a parallel configuration of nanowires. The detector with size 200×200 μm2 recorded a sub-nanosecond pulse width of 700 ps in FWHM (400 ps rise time and 530 ps relaxation time) for lysozyme monomers/multimers...
