Inertial Sense, a leading developer of navigation solutions for unmanned systems, has partnered with Unmanned Systems Technology (“UST”) to showcase their Luna software platform for automated navigation. The ‘Silver’ profile highlights how Luna can be used by robotics companies looking to make their existing fleet both unmanned and automated.

The Luna platform provides high-accuracy information on a robot’s location, performance, and path, which can be used to automate, monitor, and control individual robots or entire fleets. Luna combines inputs from a variety of sensors, including cameras, inertial systems and GPS, and uses sophisticated vision processing, mapping and object detection algorithms to provide precision automated navigation.

LUNA Autonomated Vehicle Platform

Advantages of the Luna Autonomy Platform for developers and system integrators of automated robotic platforms include:

Focus on Core Competencies: Leveraging Inertial Labs’ deep expertise and experience with automated navigation technologies allows companies to focus on their core competencies and continue to develop their strategic innovation.

Save Time and Simplify R&D: Integrating proven modular automated movement and navigation building blocks saves time and simplifies R&D needs, resulting in reduced costs and faster time to market.

Control and Measure in Real Time: See the overview of your fleet from a simple and intuitive dashboard. Monitor performance and make informed, data-driven decisions.

Utilize Precision Technology: Inertial Sense’s Luna platform can provide your autonomous unmanned vehicles with robust localization and path control in any environment, with path and pattern-following accuracy down to 6-10 cm.

Simplify Infrastructure: Wireless technology, onboard processing and cloud-based services remove the need for beacons, guidewires or other custom site-specific infrastructure or hardware installations.

Autonomous Mower Sensor System

Inertial Sense’s Luna Autonomy Platform is ideal for enabling autonomous workhorse equipment for a variety of applications and industries, including precision agriculture, lawncare and landscaping, last-mile delivery, logistics automation, and snow removal and other infrastructure services.
