Generate accurate and consistent position, orientation and heading
Our inertial navigation systems (INS) seamlessly integrate GNSS and IMU data to generate accurate and reliable position, orientation, and heading measurements for land-based mobile mapping vehicles.
Trajectory is recorded at up to 250 Hz and synchronised with LiDAR and other external imaging sensors. Once installed, our systems can be left to operate without needing repeat configuration or maintenance.
OxTS’ NAVsuite is a complimentary addition to every INS purchased from OxTS. It is used by surveyors across the world to configure their INS and monitor, post-process and analyse their survey data.
Sensor fusion and tight-coupling software allows data to be collected even in poor GNSS environments such as forests or urban canyons, whilst OxTS Georeferencer provides surveyors with the ability to create accurate, georeferenced 3D pointclouds.

Case Study: Ordnance Survey
Ordnance Survey were in need of a quicker, scalable and more cost effective way to collect georeferenced pointcloud data.
They engaged with OxTS and local channel partner Datron Technology to understand what was achievable. As a result they were able to create highly accurate pointclouds and reduce costs all whilst improving the efficiency of their mobile mapping operations.
This case study details how they did it.
LiDAR Surveying Brochure
OxTS inertial navigation systems provide users with absolute position and highly accurate inertial measurement information. This information allows them to georeference pointclouds from multiple LiDAR sensors.
These measurements help increase survey repeatability, cut down the time to survey, intelligently analyse data, improve final results and increase project ROI.

Recorded webinar: Why is it important to use an INS with a mobile mapping vehicle?
Earlier this year we presented a webinar where we discussed the importance of using an INS in your mobile mapping vehicle. During the webinar attendees had the opportunity to learn more about:
- OxTS INS technology
- The challenges of mobile mapping
- How you can collect accurate position data even in tough GNSS conditions
The webinar was recorded and is available for you to watch here.
