Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9964889A1] A method and a device are disclosed for determining measurement data of objects, such as people who may be dressed, by means of ultrasonic waves, wherein ultrasonic waves being transmitted to objects are reflected and wherein the measurement data are determined on the basis of transmission time-related information contained in the received ultrasonic reflection pattern. A time window can delimit the received signal from other signals representing multiple reflections between object and clothing.
