  • String Potentiometers-Image
    String Potentiometers - (37 companies)
    String Potentiometers are used to measure the movement and displacement of objects. A cable or wire is attached to an object, and as the object moves, the transducer produces an electrical signal proportional to the wire's linear extension. How...

  • Interferometers-Image
    Interferometers - (111 companies)
    Interferometers measure distance in terms of wavelength and determine the wavelengths of light sources. They use two or more flat mirrors to split off or pick off beams from a light source such as a laser, lamp, or star. The beams are then combined...

  • COMPARISON OF PORTABLE SPEED MEASUREMENT DEVICES
    A test vehicle with a calibrated Nitestar distance - measuring instrument (DMI) made 100 passes through the test site at two speed levels (50 passes at 55 mph, 50 passes at 35 mph), and speed was recorded by each device for each pass.
  • QUALITY AND ACCURACY OF POSITIONAL DATA IN TRANSPORTATION
    For example, the NITESTAR ® distance measur- ing instrument can measure distances to ±1 foot over the course of 1 mile.
  • PORTABLE SCOUR MONITORING EQUIPMENT
    … allow it to record data into a computer, which can be viewed by Nitestar software or by … Therefore, it was replaced with a standard surveying measuring wheel attached to the back of the truck … … serial data string, pulse counters were added to the wheel to register electroni- cally the distance traveled. To provide sonar measurement capability, a sonar instru- ment with all the electronics built into the transducer head was selected (Figure 27).
  • Modeling Road Centerlines and Predicting Lengths in 3‐D Using LIDAR Point Cloud and Planimetric Road Centerline Data
    Road lengths can be ob- tained via technologies such as ground surveying, global positioning systems (GPS), and Distance Measurement Instruments (DMI). The DMI used to collect measurements was an NITESTAR Model NS-60 (Nu-Metrics, Inc.
