German term or phrase: eingeteachte Höhendifferenz
This appears as a label on a graph which illustrates a system which counts objects, e.g. magazines, using light sensors to detect how high the pile of objects is, i think! "Eingeteachte" is most problematic - it comes from "teachen" i think. The "Höheninformation" is programmed using a teach-in procedure but I'm not sure what the latter is either.

English translation:programmed height difference
Explanation:
Teachen does seem to be an 'eingedeutscht' expression for programming or configuration (see URLs) 'Taught' in the context of machines can of course be used, e.g. 'the robot is taught to count beans' but I don't think it would be used in more serious texts. HTH

(self-)calibrated height difference


Explanation:
This sounds like an automated feedback system where a sensor senses the height difference and calibrates the part of the system that acts on the height.

self-learned height difference


Explanation:
The concept you are looking for is self-learning. This search list has information on self-learning robots etc.
Apparently the height meter determines from height differences what number the height differences are all an integral multiple of. This determines, with enough numbers, the object height. Or something similar.
