    • Measuring yarn diameter using inexpensive optical sensors 

      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 ...
    • The optical mouse for indoor mobile robot odometry measurement 

      Palacín Roca, Jordi; Valgañón, Ignasi; Pernia, R. (Elsevier, 2006)
      In this work the optical mouse is proposed for indoor odometry measurement in mobile robot applications. The optical mouse is a very low-cost sensor and has the advantage that the measured displacement is independent from ...
    • The optical mouse sensor as an incremental rotary encoder 

      Tresánchez Ribes, Marcel; Pallejà Cabrè, Tomàs; Teixidó Cairol, Mercè; Palacín Roca, Jordi (Elsevier, 2009)
      In this paper, a new application and capabilities of the sensor of the optical mouse are presented. An inexpensive incremental rotary encoder is built based on a mechanical assembly where the sensor is at a fixed distance ...
