Holding GPS Position Not a Dead Option

Dead reckoning has been used by aviators, marine vessels and surveyors as a navigation solution for centuries. This process of estimating a position by advancing a known position using course, speed, time and distance to be traveled can be a valuable tool when GPS is an issue. But, alone it is prone to error. As the saying goes "You're dead, if you don't reckon right." Enter technology. Terrestrial Mobile LiDAR Scanning (TMLS) where advancements in GPS satellite navigation and inertial navigation systems provide accurate positioning it is still on the basis of the surveyor's dead reckoning. Dead reckoning implies estimation and inaccuracy; however the concept is a sound process when coupled with well control TMLS technology. Dead reckoning, using the roll, pitch and yaw data from the IMU (inertial measurement unit), aids traditional GPS navigation via intelligent algorithms based on a vehicle's distance and directional changes during GPS signal interruption. When there is no GPS, the system relies on the IMU and DMI (distance measuring instrument) for short periods of time...

StreetMapper Helps Improve Highway Safety

Dutch surveying company Geomaat has developed a unique method of measuring safety barrier heights on European roads. Using the mobile laser mapping system StreetMapper and automated feature extraction software, Geomaat can now process laser scanned point cloud to determine the height of the existing barrier. The software then automatically codes the georeferenced 3D model, green for acceptable and red for requiring attention...
