Applanix Introduces Next-Generation OEM Solution for Mobile Mapping Applications Using GNSS-Inertial Technology
Hardware and Software Platform Provides Unparalleled Accuracy and Performance for Systems Integrators
DENVER,— Applanix, a Trimble Company (NASDAQ: TRMB), announced today the Trimble® AP+ Land GNSS-inertial OEM solution for accurate and robust position and orientation for georeferencing sensors and positioning vehicles in land mobile mapping applications. This enables users to accurately and efficiently track and monitor fleets, produce high-definition (HD) maps and 3D models, or act as a reference solution for advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) testing, even in the most challenging GNSS environments.
The launch will be held at Geo Week in Denver, Colo. Geo Week is an integration of the International Lidar Mapping Forum, AEC Next Technology Expo & Conference, and SPAR 3D Expo & Conference, along with partner events ASPRS Annual Conference and USIBD Annual Symposium.
The Trimble AP+ Land is a comprehensive solution for land vehicle applications that is small enough to easily integrate into the most compact mobile mapping systems. It is also compatible with virtually any type of mapping sensor, including single or multi-LiDAR systems, video cameras, photogrammetric and panoramic cameras and other similar sensors.
Configurable to meet the mapping, positioning and direct georeferencing (DG) accuracy demands of mapping and positioning applications in challenging GNSS signal environments, the Trimble AP+ Land solution features:
- Applanix IN-Fusion+ GNSS-aided inertial firmware with Trimble ProPoint™ GNSS positioning technology
- Dual embedded survey-grade GNSS chipsets that can receive multi-frequency and multi-constellation signals
- Dual custom designed inertial measurement units (IMU)
- Distance measurement indicator (DMI)
- Compact size
- Low-power consumption
- Optional RTK and Trimble CenterPoint® RTX real-time correction service support
- Full integration and post sales support through the Applanix Global support network
“We have taken the most advanced features of Applanix inertial and Trimble GNSS technology, and packaged them into a powerful compact and versatile solution optimized for mobile mapping and positioning applications,” said Joe Hutton, Applanix’s director of inertial technology, air and land products. “We remain committed to our customers’ success by developing flexible and scalable positioning solutions such as the AP+ Land and more.”
The Trimble AP+ Land OEM solution is fully supported by the industry-leading Applanix POSPac MMS post-processing software, which features Trimble CenterPoint RTX post-processing for centimeter-level positioning globally without the need for base stations. These capabilities make it an ideal solution for integrators to produce a highly efficient land mobile mapping system.
For LiDAR integrators, the Trimble AP+ Land OEM is compatible with the POSPac MMS LiDAR QC tools. SLAM technology computes the IMU to LiDAR boresight misalignment angles and also adjusts the trajectory to achieve the highest level of georeferencing accuracy in the generated point cloud.
The Trimble AP+ Land OEM solution and POSPac MMS are available through Applanix sales channels. For more information visit: mobilemapping.applanix.com.
