Using the optical mouse sensor as a two-euro counterfeit coin detector
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper, the sensor of an optical mouse is presented as a counterfeit coin detector applied to the two-Euro case. The detection process is based on the short distance image acquisition capabilities of the optical mouse sensor where partial images of the coin under analysis are compared with some partial reference coin images for matching. Results show that, using only the vision sense, the counterfeit acceptance and rejection rates are very similar to those of a trained user and better than those of an untrained user.

Using the image acquisition capabilities of the optical mouse sensor to build an absolute rotary encoder Tresánchez Ribes, Marcel; Pallejà Cabrè, Tomàs; Teixidó Cairol, Marcel; Palacín Roca, Jordi (Elsevier, 2010)In this paper, the optical mouse sensor is proposed as the main sensor of an absolute rotary encoder. The image acquired by the optical sensor is used to read a positioning binary code printed on an internal rotary surface ...
Characterization of a Low-Cost Optical Flow Sensor When Using an External Laser as a Direct Illumination Source Font Calafell, Davinia; Tresánchez Ribes, Marcel; Pallejà Cabrè, Tomàs; Teixidó Cairol, Mercè; Palacín Roca, Jordi (MDPI, 2011)In this paper, a low cost optical flow sensor is combined with an external laser device to measure surface displacements and mechanical oscillations. The measurement system is based on applying coherent light to a ...
Tresánchez Ribes, Marcel; Pallejà Cabrè, Tomàs; Teixidó Cairol, Mercè; Palacín Roca, Jordi (Elsevier, 2010)In this paper, the inexpensive optical sensor of a common computer mouse is proposed to measure yarn diameter. This measurement allows a progressive control of the yarn production processes in the textile industry. The ...
