Presence sensing for product "Board" on a 12' saw, within (not aligned) an area to be cut. It had to detect the leading edge (but not activate output) and the trailing edge where it then activated an output to stop the saw carriage - brought the saw up, and cut through the product. Without initially activating when it goes in or out of the home enclosure. The Light Guide (fiber optic) must look up through 3/8" slot to see the product, of different colors, at a distance of 3"~4".

I have a project which entails bringing light from the outdoors to the interior of a NYC Condo apt. I wish to make a minimum penetration through the outside wall and transmit daylight approximately 20 to 30 feet.

Nothing yet, but I know they can be of almost any size, and can be used for anything from solar day lighting ,LED electronic applications, LED architectural lighting to optical systems. There are even several patents for CPV applications.
