INS/GNSS dedicated to mobile mapping

October 30th, 2019, Published in Articles: PositionIT

SBG Systems’ Quanta Series of inertial navigation systems (INS) is dedicated to air and land-based mobile mapping integrators. Because SBG Systems wants surveyors to save autonomy for additional survey lines, the company has designed a small, lightweight, and low-power inertial navigation system offered on two levels of accuracy. Quanta and Quanta Extra have been developed for compact lidar or camera-based mobile mapping solutions. Quanta provides precise orientation and centimetre level position data delivered both in real-time and post-processing. Embedded in a UAV, this direct geo-referencing solution reduces the need of ground control points and the need of overlapping. Embedded in a car, it ensures a robust trajectory even in harsh urban conditions thanks to an advanced automotive profile with odometer aiding. Qinertia, SBG’s post-processing software completes the offer. It gives access to offline RTK corrections from more than 7000 base stations located in 164 countries. Trajectory and orientation are improved by processing inertial data and raw GNSS observables in forward and backward directions. This software also computes the base station position to quickly get a project to the centimetre accuracy.
