OGI, Oceanographic & Geophysical Instruments, has selected iXblue’s Atlans INS to provide robust and uninterrupted data georeferencing to its newly unveiled mobile mapping LiDAR solution dedicated to road assessment surveys.

A fully integrated mobile mapping solution, this new vehicle-based system integrates the most advanced systems on the market to provide highly detailed georeferenced survey data to U.S. Departments of Transportation (DOTs).

“Highly accurate and reliable georeferencing of the collected data being crucial for road assessment operations, we were seeking a compact and robust navigation solution for our mobile scanner project,” states Darren Moss, Program Manager at OGI. “We tested other Inertial Navigation Systems (INS) during mobile surveys in NYC and Boston with poor results, as those INS units relied mainly on GPS signals. Maintaining good GPS signals in the urban canyons of large cities proved to be impossible. This deeply impacted the georeferencing of the acquired LiDAR data, leading to highly inefficient operations. This is the reason we turned to iXblue’s Atlans A7 INS.”
