Knowledge in a Nutshell

What Is the Light Section Method?

The light section method, also known as laser line triangulation, is based on the proven triangulation principle and used to detect height and width information. A laser line is projected onto an object and recorded by an image sensor inside the device at a specific angle. Depending on the distance between sensor and object, the diffuse reflected laser light hits different positions on the camera chip. From an exact calculation of the angles between the object and the returning laser light, precise height and width information can be derived.

Brain Teaser

Uncle Paul got a birthday cake that he wants to share with his guests. Some of them are really hungry, others less so. Therefore, the cake pieces do not have to be cut to the same size. How can Paul cut his birthday cake into as many pieces as possible with only four straight cuts? He is only allowed to cut vertically (2-dimensional).

How many pieces does Uncle Paul get out of the cake?
