Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0157553A1] The invention relates to a sensor configuration for devices (1) that can be displaced substantially in a linear manner along a trajectory (2). Said sensor configuration comprises at least one first distance meter (6) that measures the distance in the sense of the trajectory (2) and that determines the distance to a neighboring object (3) on the basis of the propagation time of an impulse sent along the measuring beam (7). A second distance meter (8) determines the position of the device (1) relative to the marks (4) provided along the trajectory.
