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...

Embention Partners with Inertial Labs to Supply Complete Autopilot Payload Solution

Posted by Will Dillingham on Mar 13, 2020 2:11:41 PM

Embention began investigating Inertial Labs as a supplier for inertial measurement units (IMU) or attitude and heading reference systems (AHRS) in 2013. Their developing project would involve integrating such sensors with targeted munition rounds specifically designed for controlling and mitigating forest fires.

In subsequent years, the Inertial Labs Inertial Navigation System became an appealing GPS-Denied navigation solution for Embention, who started discussing an integration with the Veronte Autopilot (produced by Embention) in 2016. Inertial Labs is delighted to announce the successful completion of integration efforts on November 26, 2019 when the INS-P, the professional version of the INS, was declared fully integrated and validated through testing...

“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...
