survey-mapping Technical Notes
This 10-minute presentation, provides an entry-level explanation of how and why GNSS-aided inertial navigations systems are used on UAV platforms to capture both flight dynamic data and for georeferencing purposes.
Why GNSS-aided INS are used on mobile mapping vehicles GNSS receivers provide accurate position and velocity measurements, but can’t provide all the measurements required to fully georeference mobile mapping equipment.
The OxTS xNAV550 GNSS-aided inertial system and Z+F PROFILER® 9012 were mounted on a vehicle roof and connected to each other using a custom interface cable. This provided an accurate
Understanding flight dynamics When undertaking any form of flight, it is important to understand the orientation of the aerial platform, the nature of its motion and the direction in which
What is gx/ix™? OxTS gx/ix technology is a powerful GNSS/inertial tight-coupling technology developed to take full advantage of OxTS’ extensive knowledge and experience in GNSS and inertial integration, Kalman filtering,
What is LiDAR? Light detection and ranging (LiDAR) technology is a technology used widely in the surveying community to collect high precision three-dimensional (3D) survey data. This generic description of
What is an unmanned aerial vehicle? Recent years have seen an increase in the deployment of aircraft that do not have a manned pilot on board. These unmanned aerial vehicles
