New Routescene GPScamera Unit

Routescene has announced a series of enhancements made to the integral GPScamera unit. The improved tilt facility on the GPScamera means that tools are no longer needed to adjust the orientation and pitch of the unit, making its attachment to the roof rack of a vehicle simple and straightforward. Its quick release mechanism allows the unit to be easily removed. The system supports the new Gig Ethernet uEye series of digital camera. The higher recording frame rate of the uEye cameras allows video frames to be spaced more closely together, and makes it possible for surveys to be conducted at... (read more)

ALIGN Firmware in Two Models

NovAtel (Canada) has introduced its enhanced ALIGN solution, as part of the 6.100 firmware release. The solution is available in two models: ALIGN Heading and ALIGN Relative Positioning. The two ALIGN models facilitate system installation with plug-and-play configuration and offer the flexibility to design either GNSS attitude or relative positioning solutions. ALIGN Heading generates high-precision 2D vehicle attitude (heading and pitch) between two antennas and can be extended to offer 3D attitude (heading, roll and pitch) with a third receiver. ALIGN Relative Positioning offers accurate relative positioning between two or more moving platforms for high precision monitoring and automation in... (read more)

LISA: a Japanese 3D Laser Scanner

Develo Inc. (Japan) has released LISA, a 3D laser scanner which can be used on moving platforms such as a cars, helicopters, and ships. In its compact body, LISA combines a 3D laser scanner, digital camera, GPS, and motion sensor. While LISA is operated from moving platforms, it understands its own location, attitude and moving tendency. The motion sensor analyses the movement of the unit and estimates the next position and attitude. The eye safe mode of LISA is classified as ‘Class 1’ and the weight of the system is less than 25kg. LISA has the real time accuracy of... (read more)
