What if you could use magnets to make your sliding doors slide?
That’s what researchers from the University of Waterloo and the University at Buffalo have done with a device that allows them to control sliding doors.
They developed a magnetic door sensor that can detect a change in a magnetic field.
They’ve tested the device in a sliding door in a lab and in real life using a sliding lock at a gas station in Rochester, New York.
“The device has been tested in real-world conditions to determine the effectiveness of its ability to detect a magnetic change in the environment,” said the university’s Jeffrey Caudill.
“We were able to demonstrate that the device can detect magnetic changes in the presence of a magnetic sensor, and in a way that is consistent with our own expectations.”
The device uses a simple circuit that takes advantage of the fact that the walls of a sliding sliding door are magnetic.
When the door opens, a magnetic component in the walls vibrates.
The magnetic component pushes the door open, which causes the door to move forward.
The device detects changes in a magnet field and can detect changes in other magnetic components inside the door.
“This sensor allows us to control a sliding or sliding door, or any other type of door, using only magnetic information,” said Caudills.
“It has no electrical circuitry.
It’s a simple and cheap device that can be easily configured and installed in a variety of different applications.”
Caudells team is using the new sensor to control two types of sliding doors at a convenience store in Rochester.
The first type of sliding door is a small wooden door with a rounded front and a small rounded back.
The sliding door’s sliding door sensor senses a change to the magnetic field inside the sliding door.
When this happens, the door starts to open.
The second type of opening is a large wooden door that has a rounded door opening.
The sensor detects changes to the magnet field inside that door.
The door starts moving forward when the magnet component in that door vibrates and the door begins to open when the door does not.
“Our system is able to detect both types of opening,” said co-author Mark Hoeffel, associate professor of mechanical engineering and director of the Computer Systems Engineering Program at the University.
“With the small door opening, we’re able to control the door, but not both openings.”
The team’s research is published in the journal Scientific Reports.
“In our study, we have demonstrated the ability of the sensor to detect changes to magnetic fields in a room, but it can also detect changes at a distance, which is a common problem with sliding doors,” said study co-lead James T. Lopresti, an assistant professor in the University’s Electrical Engineering Department.
The researchers also designed their sensor so that the door would only vibrate when the magnetic component changed. “
Although our sensor can detect small changes to a door’s magnetic properties, it needs to be configured so that it can detect any changes in either direction,” he added.
The researchers also designed their sensor so that the door would only vibrate when the magnetic component changed.
“If we were to use a device with a much higher frequency, it would be much harder to detect small variations in the magnetic components,” said Lopsti.
“A sensor that could detect small magnetic changes is the sort of thing that you would want to use for control of a large mechanical system.
It would be able and useful for a sliding car door, for example.”
The sensor is also easy to build and can be customized to detect different magnetic changes depending on the conditions.
The devices design is based on the idea of a magnet and an electrode.
A magnet attracts an electric current, creating a magnetic force.
An electrode forms an electrical current, and that current causes the magnetic force to change.
Caudrill and his colleagues wanted to build a device so that they could control the electric current that the magnetic sensor emits, which would be a useful tool for controlling other kinds of electric systems.
The sensors electrical and magnetic properties are controlled by a series of actuators that rotate and spin in response to the direction of the magnetic current.
This rotational and shearing motion is controlled by the magnetic sensors magnetic field sensor.
In a controlled environment, the sensors magnetic sensor can measure changes in both the direction and magnitude of the changes.
“By controlling the magnetic state of the door at a fixed location, the magnetic signal can be measured at a large distance and can measure both the magnet change and the change in magnitude,” said T.J. Lobo, a professor of electrical engineering and a co-investigator on the paper.
“For example, the signal could detect changes that occur when the
