New Trimble GNSS Reference Sensor

Trimble (CA, USA)) has introduced an innovative Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) reference sensor for infrastructure and network applications - the Trimble NetR3 GNSS reference sensor. Designed to seamlessly integrate into any Trimble VRS (Virtual Reference Station) network or other infrastructure application, the Trimble NetR3 offers a new option for tracking and streaming data. Using Trimble's R-Track technology, the Trimble NetR3 GNSS reference sensor streams data easily and conveniently to a variety of Trimble infrastructure software packages running in a network operations center. Instead of storing collected data internally like a continuously operating reference station (CORS), the Trimble NetR3 takes... (read more)

MicaSense Unveils RedEdge Multispectral Sensor

MicaSense has released RedEdge-M, the evolution of its rugged, built-to-last, professional multispectral sensor, RedEdge. Easily integrated into a wide variety of drones, RedEdge-M enables agricultural enterprises, growers and researchers to optimise management practices, streamline operations, detect stress and disease early, and capture accurate data for scientific analysis. The RedEdge-M captures the spectral bands required for basic crop health indexes, but also those that generate analytics that are anything but basic. With its low weight, low power requirement, and multiple integration options, the flexibility of RedEdge-M makes it attractive for farmers. Building upon the capabilities that have made RedEdge an industry... (read more)

GeoCue Launches Lidar/Imagery Fusion Sensor

GeoCue has unveiled its new True View line of unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV or 'drone') sensors in Nashville, Tennessee, USA. True View sensors offer surveyors an innovative Lidar and dual oblique mapping camera configuration integrated in a single lightweight payload for use on commercial drone platforms. True View allows for fast and easy automated generation of true 3D colourized point clouds, oblique imagery and orthophotos from a single flight. The first sensor of the product line, the True View 410, was displayed at the reveal along with full workflow processing in the companion True View Evo processing software. The True View...

Bosch Unveils Lidar Sensor for Autonomous Driving

Bosch has become the first company to develop a production-ready long-range Lidar sensor for automotive use. The Lidar system has been demonstrated at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) taking place in Las Vegas, USA, this week. It complements the company’s existing radar and camera systems to provide the extra level of safety needed to make autonomous driving a reality.  According to Bosch, the laser-based distance measurement technology known as Lidar is indispensable for driving functions at SAE Levels 3 to 5. The new Bosch sensor covers both long and close ranges, making it suitable for use both on motorways and... (read more)

Sensor Technology Evolving in Many Directions

5 Questions to…Michel Stanier
As Lidar is a hot topic in the geomatics industry with numerous fields of applications, 'GIM International' decided to ask Michel Stanier, chief operating officer of Teledyne Optech, to answer five questions in the context of airborne Lidar. Lidar has been developing rapidly over the last couple of years. Can you give us an update? Indeed, airborne Lidar is developing rapidly in several directions. The unmanned aerial system (UAS)/remotely piloted aircraft system (RPAS) platforms are driving a continued reduction in sensor size, weight and power. However, for commercial data providers, the primary focus remains on collection efficiency and lower operating... (read more)

Multi-sensor Cave Detection in Bulgaria

Meeting the Challenges of Complex Karst Environments
Caves are important in a wide variety of fields, ranging from construction engineering to mineral exploration and archaeology. Despite the scientific importance of caves, geologists believe that only a relatively small number of them have been discovered so far. Exploration is currently mainly conducted by speleologists but this is a time-consuming activity and is limited to exploration based on existing surface openings. A recent project in Bulgaria has shown that the combination of multiple geophysical techniques provides an easier and effective on-surface exploration method that meets the challenges of complex karst environments. (By Tanya Slavova and Atanas Rusev, Bulgaria) Several... (read more)

Airborne Unmanned Sensor System for UAVs

American researchers at the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) are currently working on the development of an airborne testing capability for sensors, communications devices and other airborne payloads. This aerial test bed is called the GTRI Airborne Unmanned Sensor System (GAUSS). GAUSS is based on an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) made by Griffon Aerospace and modified by GTRI. Developing new sensor technologies that can be effectively employed from the air is a priority today given the rapidly increasing use of unmanned aircraft, commented Michael Brinkmann, a GTRI principal research engineer who is leading the work. If equipped with the right... (read more)
