Reference map generation for SLAM application development
Collecting an accurate reference map in a global (i.e. GNSS) coordinate frame is important in order to achieve positioning precision in SLAM applications. This is even more critical if the automated site contains open sky as well as GNSS denied areas, and poses unique challenges in large factory or mining facilities. By utilizing entry level Trimble INS systems and POSPac processing suite of products achieving accuracies comparable to a survey conducted using mapping grade lidar, Trimble offers an innovative sensor fusion approach to generating point cloud products for SLAM based applications.
