I compared all of Galileo's angular measurements with the reconstructed elongations, obtained using TheSky 6 Professional Edition.
The answer, researchers found, lay in using lightweight materials and miniaturizing the sensors, which fall into two categories: angular measurement systems that are based on magnetic principles; and acceleration and rate-of-rotation sensors.
UNTERPREMSTAETTEN, Austria -- austriamicrosystems (SIX:AMS), a leading global designer and manufacturer of high performance analog ICs, has announced the AS5165, a contactless magnetic angle position sensor for accurate angular measurement over a full 360[deg].
The AS5145 is a contactless, complete system-on-chip magnetic rotary encoder for accurate angular measurement over a full turn of 360x with a resolution of 0.
Royal Philips Electronics (NYSE:PHG)(AEX:PHI) today announced a new magnetoresistive sensor that will be launched in vehicles in 2004 for automotive angular measurement applications including electronic throttle control (EGAS) and variable valve timing (VVT), which increases fuel efficiency in the car.
To do this, Hubble observations and subsequent analysis were fine-tuned to make angular measurements (needed for estimating distances) that are so fine that if your eyes had a similar capability you could read a car's license plate located as far away as the Moon
