Trimble Announces New Deployment of Applanix's POS LV to Enable Broader Autonomy Capabilities for IHI Corporation
Customizable System Provides Robust Positioning without Added Site Infrastructure
Map-based localization provides precise positioning and orientation estimation, augmenting GNSS/inertial data, which is critical for safe and efficient autonomous vehicle operations. The ability to provide IHI Corporation a full workflow and real-time data ensures seamless integration into IHI's truck design.
The custom-built, locally supported system leverages
Tailoring POS LV to work within IHI's unique specifications and existing autonomous platform, the map-based localization system couples an inertial navigation system (INS) with simultaneous localization and mapping-based (SLAM) capabilities, and works with several types of sensors, including LiDAR for IHI. POS LV provides an accurate base map using post-processed data and localizes vehicle positioning in real-time, enabling the reliable and safe autonomous operation of industrial vehicles.
IHI continually enhances its work environments, while also compensating for varying labor scenarios and personnel shortages. This makes the need to automate transportation critical to operations. The complexities of the evolving industrial manufacturing environment require solutions that can be tailored to a customer's specific application requirements. By partnering with
