For PNT Integration, Timing Is Everything. Inertial Supplies It.

For PNT Integration, Timing Is Everything. Inertial Supplies It.

Latronix OWLS rail survey system.

GPS + inertial + digicam + LiDAR + baro-altimeter = a really exact measurement, proper? Not when the respective sensor output timings lack correct synchronization. Only when every bit of knowledge carries an correct timetag can they collectively allow optimum efficiency in multi-sensor fusion methods.

A free webinar on August 31 explains how an inertial measurement unit (IMU) assembles and delivers exact timing data, sometimes at a a lot increased charge than the co-integrated GNSS receiver.

[Photo above: OWLS from Latronix AB will be discussed, dissected and analyzed during the webinar. For contact-free measurement of track, rails and overhead lines, OWLS delivers high-resolution data at speeds up to 300 km/h. This enables the installation of the equipment on vehicles in regular traffic. The OWLS device integrates speed sensors, tachometer, GPS, lasers, optical sensors and inertial measurement components. Timing is everything!]

Attendees will find out how appropriate synchronization of this knowledge throughout the system is essential to efficiency within the utility, significantly in high-dynamic circumstances, difficult environments and autonomy.

Register here for the free August 31 webinar, “The Right Time for the Right Place.”

An acknowledged knowledgeable within the subject, with greater than 30 years of cutting-edge expertise in multi-sensor R&D, opens the dialogue with an examination of the inner workings of the IMU and the way the person can entry timing data inside it for final benefit. A specialist in IMU design and fabrication then explores the benefits furnished by the newest micro-electromechanical methods (MEMS) know-how and the way the shopper can greatest make the most of choices furnished inside the IMU.

Finally, an engineer centered on industrial inspections examines the IMUs position in profitable utility, discussing the essential side of synchronization of the completely different sensors inside an IMU – GNSS integration. Challenges and options associated to timing and design integration of a number of sensor inputs for pre- and post-analysis shall be lined.
