NOVATEL – Nuovo Firmware 7.08.00 disponibile da Hexagon | NOVATEL

We are launching the New 7.08.00 (OM7MR0800RN0000) firmware release for all NovAtel OEM7 and PwrPak7 products on Tuesday, October 20 at 10:00 am MT.

The release enables tracking of BeiDou B2b signals on Phase III satellites, allowing the receiver to track all of the new BeiDou B1C, B2a and B2b signals. With 30 BeiDou Phase III satellites in orbit, this is a critical step in taking full advantage of the BeiDou system and facilitating the availability of satellite signals for NovAtel products in use around the world.

The following key features are now available in the 7.08.00 release:

  • Support for BeiDou Phase III signals
  • Tracking of B2b BeiDou signals

A full listing of all changes is available in the “What’s New” document that is included with the firmware download and available here.

To download the 7.08.00 firmware update for your specific platform, please visit: https://www2.novatel.com/e/130511/h-precision-gnss-gps-receivers/2mhtbn/1289869781?h=JuioNd1nw51JJGiUv6mLdCkmj4p4fDD9sZzHq2DTcgk

Sarzana (SP), 14/10/2020 – Lunitek è lieta di condividere con voi i risultati dei test eseguiti con il nuovo sistema MTi-680G RTK GNSS/INS di Xsens.

Fig. 1

L’immagine in Fig.1 rappresenta una serie di 3 giri effettuati in auto cercando di replicare movimenti, linee e velocità. Il test consisteva in: Partenza da fermo, sosta intermedia e riparteza per poi tornare alla posizione di partenza.

Fig.2

L’immagine in Fig.2 rappresenta il dettaglio del punto di partenza/arrivo del test con indicata la misura del massimo errore (3.82 cm) sul posizionamento del sistema MTi-680G RTK GNSS/INS della Xsens.

Il robusto contenitore classificato IP68 con connettori Fischer di ultima generazione, le dimensioni molto compatte, le interfacce disponibili ed un rapporto PRESTAZIONI/PREZZO eccezionale ne fanno un prodotto molto innovativo nel segmento industriale.

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.

LORD MICROSTRAIN – Accelerometro wireless G-LINK-200-R conforme ASTM F2137 per monitoraggio caratteristiche dinamiche di giostre e montagne russe

Il nuovo modello G-Link-200-R è un accelerometro wireless a 3 assi alimentato a batteria con un involucro robusto e resistente alle intemperie. Questo accelerometro wireless è conforme alla norma ASTM F2137, che lo rende particolarmente adatto al monitoraggio delle caratteristiche dinamiche delle giostre e delle montagne russe. Questa pratica definisce anche i requisiti specifici di un test di caratterizzazione del movimento dinamico (Test SARC). Il modello G-Link-200-R fornisce dati di forma d’onda a rumore estremamente basso, ideali per applicazioni di vibrazione, impatto, movimento e inclinazione.
