Velodyne’s Puck™ 32MR is the newest Mid-range LiDAR sensor in its product portfolio that combines best-in-class performance with a small form factor. A high-resolution LiDAR sensor that is cost- effective when compared to similar performance sensors but developed with automotive applications in mind to ensure reliability while delivering the performance demanded by the market. The Puck™ 32MR retains the innovative breakthroughs in 3D LiDAR such as 360° surround view along with real-time 3D data that includes distance and calibrated reflectivity measurements along with rotational angles (See product guide).
Trimble’s Compact GNSS Board Adds Flexibility and High-Precision Positioning to Unmanned Aerial Systems
Trimble introduced recently a new compact, high-precision GNSS board specifically designed for unmanned aerial systems (UAS)—the Trimble® UAS1. The board’s simple connectivity and configuration allow UAS system integrators to easily add satellite-based positioning—with the ability to upgrade its capabilities—using rugged connectors and Trimble’s easy-to-use software interface.
The new UAS1 incorporates the latest Trimble Maxwell™ technology with advances in high-precision GNSS positioning. The GNSS engine with 336 channels is capable of tracking L1/L2 frequencies from the GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and BeiDou constellations for robust centimeter-level, real-time kinematic (RTK) positioning.
The compact Trimble UAS1 board includes a broad range of receiver capabilities—from high-accuracy GPS only to full GNSS features for positioning. Firmware options and features are password upgradeable, allowing functionality to be added as requirements change. The receiver also supports Fault Detection and Exclusion (FDE) and Receiver Autonomous Integrity Monitoring (RAIM). System integrators also have the ability to detect interference with the included RF Spectrum Monitoring and Analysis tool embedded in the receiver.
