XSENS – Nuovi veicoli autonomi nel più grande porto marittimo del Medio Oriente utilizzando la tecnologia di georeferenziazione di Xsens

MTi-Series GNSS/INS Motion Trackers from Xsens provide accurate 3D positioning in DG World’s AI-based software solutions, integrated into a fleet of Autonomous Trucks at Jebel Ali port

Enschede, The Netherlands – June 19, 2020 – A ground-breaking deployment of autonomous vehicle technology by DP World, the operator of the Jebel Ali container port in Dubai, is to demonstrate the performance and reliability of technology provided by Xsens, the manufacturer of motion-tracking sensors, supporting DGWorld, a manufacturer of artificial intelligence (AI)-based autonomous and robotic vehicle systems.

Global ports operator DP World and DGWorld have announced a contractual agreement providing for the conversion of a fleet of Autonomous Internal Terminal Vehicles (AITVs) at Jebel Ali, the largest port in the Middle East, to fully autonomous operation.

The AITVs will use vehicle control technology from DGWorld. The DGWorld system is utilizing a sensor fusion approach, based on LIDAR and Radar, for object detection and environment awareness, an MTi-Series (industrial Motion Tracker) sensor from Xsens to support their simultaneous localization and mapping (3D SLAM) function, and AI-based real-time decision-making software.

The MTi-Series from Xsens combines a GNSS satellite receiver and an inertial navigation system (INS) in a robust, industrial-grade package. This enables DP World’s AITVs to accurately track their position and navigate the AITVs, even when GNSS satellite signals cannot be received properly. This is an important capability when operating in a container port, since the AITVs will navigate through narrow corridors between tall stacks of containers which block the GNSS signals.

The deployment of fully autonomous ITVs offers numerous benefits to DP World, such as:

  • Safer operation – the autonomous ITVs’ high-resolution LiDAR sensors and Radars reliably detect and avoid people and objects. Speed measurements from the MTi’s GNSS receiver enable the software system to precisely control the ITV’s speed and the integrated Xsens IMU optimizes continuously the vehicle driving performance.
  • Higher efficiency – the autonomous ITVs can operate 24/7, and their routing and operation can be optimized through the application of DGWorld´s Fleet Management software.

Matthias Krause, General Manager of DGWorld, said: ‘The DGWorld autonomous control system is specially designed to match the driving dynamics of heavy industrial vehicles such as the container trucks to be converted for Jebel Ali port. The accuracy and output data rate of the Xsens MTi are perfect for this application. The sensor fusion capabilities of the Xsens motion tracker have also been helpful in the development of the DGWorld autonomous technology: whether performing georeferencing via satellite positioning or via INS, the MTi maintains a stable, consistent and high-frequency output.’

“Xsens is honoured to be selected by DGWorld to support this autonomous vehicle project and take it from concept to reality. This shows the advantages of using the Xsens MTi-series GNSS/INS, with reliable sensor fusion algorithms developed in 20 years of Xsens existence, for real-time operation of industrial AGVs/UGVs in difficult circumstances”, Meindert Zeeuw, Xsens Sales Director ISM EMEA, added.

XSENS – Migrazione: Da Serie MTi-10 a Serie MTi-600

Questo articolo fornisce un’introduzione alla nuova Serie MTi-600 per gli utenti che stanno migrando dalla Serie MTi-10. Sebbene i protocolli di comunicazione e la maggior parte delle funzionalità siano condivisi tra le due serie, ci sono alcune differenze importanti che devono essere considerate durante la migrazione.

Algorithm – Filter profiles

As with the MTi-20 and MTi-30, the MTi-620, MTi-630, and MTi-670 also feature a range of filter profiles to choose from. The MTi 600-series include new filter profiles as well as some “legacy” filter profiles.

Although the naming and behavior are not identical, the available options cover typically all applications.

Below a table is shown which makes suggestions on comparable filter profiles when migrating from the MTi 10-series to the MTi 600-series.  Although the MTi-620 and MTi-630 support a “General” filter profile that can be used to reproduce “legacy” filter profiles, we recommend new users to start testing the Robust and Responsive filter profiles.

In contrary to the AHS filter option in the MTi 10-series, the AHS option is now incorporated in the heading behavior for the MTi 600-series, e.g.: VRUAHS. Active Heading Stabilization is a new feature designed for use with VRU products and therefore it will not be available for the MTi-670.

For the MTi-670 three different filter profiles are available: General, GeneralNoBaro and GeneralMag. These filter profiles were already available for the MTi-7 and the MTi-G-710.

A complete description of the filter profiles available for the MTi 600-series can be found in chapter 4 of the MTi 600-series Datasheet.

Hardware – Mounting

The footprint of the MTi 600-series is significantly smaller than that of the MTi 10-series. Hence, the mounting holes are different, see Figure 1 and Figure 2:

For more information on the hardware integration of the MTi 600-series, please refer to the MTi 600-series Hardware integration manual.

Hardware – Communication interfaces

The MTi 10-series provided support for 5 different communication interfaces: USB, RS232, RS485, RS422 and UART (OEM only). The MTi 600-series additionally supports a CAN interface, but a direct USB, RS485, and RS422 interface are no longer available.

A USB connection can still easily be created by using the Development Kit board, or by using the UART to USB converter that comes with it. The Development Kit board also provides access to an RS422 interface. The user can create his/her converter following the design of the Development Kit.

Hardware – Electrical interface

The MTi 600-series has a 16-pins connector, whereas the MTi 10-series connector only features 9 pins. These additional pins on the MTi 600-series are used among other things, for the GNSS input, CAN bus and UART interface.

Table 2 shows a conversion for the pins of the MTi 10-series to the MTi 600-series:

More information on the pinout and electrical specifications are available in the MTi 600-series Hardware integration manual.

Software

The MTi 600-series supports the public source XDA and MTDATA2 as does the MTi 10-series. There are however a few changes, which are highlighted below:

These messages are documented in the MT Low-Level Communication Protocol Documentation and the supplied Doxygen in the SDK.

The MTi 600-series are fully supported by MT Software Suite versions 2019.2 and up. Older versions of MT Manager, the MT SDK, and the Magnetic Field Mapper may not be fully compatible with the MTi 600-series. We advise all users to always download and install the latest version of the MT Software Suite, available at https://www.xsens.com/software-downloads.
