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...

“Tunnel Guide” Feature for GPS-Aided INS Improves Performance During GNSS Outage

Posted by Will Dillingham on Jan 25, 2020 2:30:48 PM

An INS estimates the position, attitude, and velocity using the gyroscopes and accelerometers contained inside an inertial measurement unit (IMU).

Position accuracy can be greatly improved when the INS is aided by Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS). However, GNSS is not always available.

Customer requirements demand for better performance of an INS during GNSS outage. Outages can be caused by tunnels, urban canyons, roads under bridges, etc...

Utilizing Methods of Precision Agriculture to Create a Sustainable Tomorrow

Posted by Will Dillingham on Jan 25, 2020 8:17:04 AM

Precision Agriculture is one of the most used cases of autonomy in this century. Recent reports show that by the year 2025, Precision Agriculture is expected to grow to become a 43.4-billion-dollar industry worldwide[1]. For an industry that didn’t begin gaining traction until the 1990’s, it’s quite an impressive market.
