 © unmanned systems technology 2020

LORD Microstrain’s inertial sensors have been incorporated into Emesent’s Hovermap payload, which has been designed to enable drones to carry out autonomous mobile mapping in hazardous GPS-denied areas. The LORD inertial sensors provide the Hovermap system with precise orientation and velocity information in a small and lightweight package.

UAV-based mobile mapping systems typically consist of a GNSS receiver integrated with an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), and a LiDAR scanner capable of collecting around 1,000,000 measurements per second. This system produces georeferenced data...
