Direct Georeferencing for Photogrammetry Using Inertial Labs INS-B

Posted by Will Dillingham on Mar 27, 2020 10:30:00 AM

Aerial Photogrammetric analysis may be applied to a single image or high-speed imagery and remote sensing to detect, measure and record complex 3D motion fields.

This is done by feeding measurements and image analysis into computational models that estimate the relative motions and positions with increasing accuracy.

While in its early days it was used mostly for topographic mapping, it’s application base has recently expanded into numerous industries. Modern sensors and software capabilities allow for the creation of precise 3D renderings and point cloud generation which is widely used in industries such as Filming, Sports, Game Development, Agriculture, Real Estate, Forensics, Land Surveying, and in Civil or Architectural Engineering.

For these different applications, two methods of photogrammetry are used in practice today, Aerial Triangulation (AT), and a more modern approach, Direct Georeferencing...

Affordable and Hassle-Free Solutions for Obsolete Sensors

Posted by Will Dillingham on Mar 23, 2020 3:29:11 PM

Replacing existing sensors is not as easy as purchasing a new sensor and plugging it into the existing hardware. There are many other factors that companies must consider as they seek replacement solutions, and they typically are both costly and time-consuming.

Inertial Labs customers will always be taken care of with the intentional focus directed to the needs presented by customer requirements. One way we take care of our own is by offering an option to start using our sensors as direct replacements for the obsolete or discontinued sensors.

In fact, we can put our sensors into a form factor that is compatible with the aging, expensive, or no-longer-available products. Inertial Labs wants to reduce R&D and programming time for customers seeking replacement solutions for discontinued sensors. We can help solve the problems they face due to obsolete sensors in four critical ways...

Attitude and Heading Reference System (AHRS) Supports Data Input From External Single or Dual GNSS Receiver

Posted by Will Dillingham on Mar 20, 2020 5:45:00 AM

The AHRS-II-P offers advantages over its competitors present on the market by recording and transmitting very accurate Heading, Pitch and Roll; a very appealing choice for applications involving motion control such as UAV’s, aircrafts, ships, or robotic devices.

After the ARHS-II-P is mounted onto it’s carrier base, a quick calibration procedure is performed and the device is ready to go. Among the many ways to perform these calibrations procedures, the most mention worthy is the Inertial Labs option for an ‘On-the-Fly’ calibration.


Test Results of the AHRS-II-P with External GNSS Input

For this test procedure, the Inertial Labs AHRS-II-P was mounted to the floor of a test vehicle. The external GNSS receiver was mounted to the ceiling, and the respective antenna was mounted on the roof of the vehicle. The test duration was approximately 25 minutes long, and was performed at an average speed of 25 mph (11.18 m/s) in the suburban area shown in the picture below...

How the Inertial Labs Digital Tilt Sensor (DTS) is Shaping Construction Safety

Posted by Will Dillingham on Mar 17, 2020 10:14:04 AM

As of today, the leading cause of fatalities and injury in the construction industry is due to a falling related incident. Data that was gathered by the United States Department of Labor and published by the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) found that in 2017, falling incidents alone contributed to 39.2% of the total construction tragedies.

But how do these incidents happen?

Much of the conventionally used construction equipment is designed to safely extend a worker as far as possible in order to allow them to operate in difficult to reach places that current automated processes are not capable of doing...
