As the patent's abstract describes, the technology would be "a method for determining an orientation of a photosensor of a controller with respect to a projector." In layman's terms, it means that projectors, beams and light could be used to determine a user's real-world location.
[125] recently described a novel photosensor for OTC biosensing based on a signal "switch off-on" strategy, conjugating a hairpin DNA probe and Cd/Te QDs immobilized on the ITO/Ti[O.sub.2] electrode by sulfur bonds.
rerio Opn4m1 found in the cell membrane likely works as a photosensor, while the nuclear melanopsin (Opn4m2) could function as a transcription factor.
The camera also uses a nearly half-megapixel solid-state photosensor array that directly records X-rays, visible light or particles.
Included are I/O connectors for thermistor and photosensor for system monitoring or closed loop intensity control.
Light absorbed by the red blood cells is measured with a photosensor. As the heart beats, the changing blood volume scatters the amount of light received." The Analog Devices ADPD142 optical module has a complete photometric front end including current sources, LEDs, and an integrated photosensor.
For on/off control, the photosensor was assumed to be placed at 7.5 m (25 ft) from the window to ensure adequate light was available on majority of the desks when all the lights were turned off.
