Below are the active patents related to Capacitive Sensor Market.

Patent Number: US8847613B2 Capacitive sensing system Abstract A capacitive sensing system (1) which includes an electrical charge providing unit (4) like an electret foil for providing a permanent electrical charge at a sensing site (6) of the object (3) and a capacitive sensor (2) including a sensing electrode (5) for generating a sensing signal by capacitively sensing the object (3) at the sensing site (6) of the object (3). By providing a permanent electrical charge at the sensing site (6) of the object (3), the bias between the object (3) and the sensing electrode (5) of the capacitive sensor (2) is intentionally preferentially made large, thereby increasing the sensitivity towards mechanical motions. The resulting sensing signal substantially caused by these mechanical motions between the object (3) and the sensing electrode (5) is generally larger than a signal generated substantially by an electrophysiological field. Application filed: 2010-05-31 Application Granted: 2014-09-30 Current Assignee: Koninklijke Philips NV Patent Number: US8432173B2 Capacitive position sensor Abstract In one embodiment, a method includes receiving one or more first signals indicating one or more first capacitive couplings of an object with a sensing element that comprises a sensing path that comprises a length. The first capacitive couplings correspond to the object coming into proximity with the sensing element at a first position along the sensing path of the sensing element. The method includes determining based on one or more of the first signals the first position of the object along the sensing path and setting a parameter to an initial value based on the first position of the object along the sensing path. The initial value includes a particular parameter value and is associated with a range of parameter values. The range of parameter values is associated with the length of the sensing path. Application filed: 2011-05-27 Application Granted: 2013-04-30 Current Assignee: QRG Ltd, Neodron Ltd Patent Number: US7602376B1 Moving dielectric, capacitive position sensor configurations Abstract A capacitive sensor configuration is capable of determining position and/or velocity for rotary or linear translation using a movable dielectric element coupled to an elongate member. The dielectric element is supported between at least one detection plate and a plurality of transmitting plates. By measuring the charge on the detecting plate, the capacitances of the assembly at a given point in time can be determined, and this measurement is used to solve for position of the member. The dielectric need not be rigid, and the dielectrics distance from the plates does not have to be tightly controlled. The apparatus can be used to measure the position or velocity of a variety of devices, including computer peripherals such as mice, keyboards, joysticks, and other input control panels and pointing devices Application filed: 2000-10-06 Application Granted: 2009-10-13 Current Assignee: P I Engineering Inc
