Here is the list of changes to the Inertial+ software for the release in November 2012.
The latest GPS receiver to be fully integrated into the Inertial+ is the Leica GX1230+ receiver. The receiver communicates with the Inertial+ using the Leica OWI (Open World Interface) proprietary protocol, which is available on the GX port of the Leica GX1230+. Using the Leica OWI interface improves the performance of Inertial+, compared to using standard NMEA, as it allows extracting more information from the receiver, such as vertical velocity. For more information on how to use the GPS receiver with the Inertial+ see the integration manual for the Leica GX1230+ or contact our sales department.
The latest Inertial+ software release also features an interface for the Trimble BD920 receiver module. The Trimble BD920 is a GPS L1/L2 and GLONASS L1/L2 board with centimetre-level RTK positioning which has been specially developed for system integrators. Both the Inertial+ and the Trimble BD920 are predestined for use in vehicle-based and airborne mapping applications. Combined they are the perfect solution for all system integrators looking for continuous, jump-free position and high accuracy orientation data. To read more about the BD920 integration, click here…
Inertial+ command to turn camera triggers on/off
Inertial+ can be configured to generate triggers at a user-defined travelled distance. With this release, the triggers can be turned on/off and the trigger distance can be changed on the fly using a command sent over the UDP port. For more information about this feature please contact OxTS Support.
