High-performance real-time positioning in UAV survey, photogrammetry, machine control and intelligent vehicles is now possible with entry-level inertial and GNSS products, as explained in the upcoming November 19 webinar, “How the latest RTK + Inertial technology enables accessible and reliable centimetric navigation.”
The benefits of dual-frequency GNSS and recent advances in inertial technology combine with advanced software algorithms to deliver results only achievable previously with survey-grade equipment. Lower size, weight and power (SWaP) requirements further free up UAV missions.
With the post-processing software that will be demonstrated, even greater precision can be achieved. Geospatial professionals will benefit from an optimal centimeter-level position accuracy in all their projects, even for corridor mapping and in poorly covered RTK areas. Base stations can be 40, 70 or even 100 kilometers away.
