Ground level, or mean sea level elevation? Calculating this complex measurement is dependent on the nature of the datum collected, which is classified according to three types of height: ellipsoidal, geoidal, and orthometric.
Developers of systems for autonomous or semi-autonomous vehicles are faced with the challenge of reducing cost through standardization across platforms, while at the same time having to design systems for vehicles operating in very different environments.
Using Applanix Direct Georeferencing OEM boards, SABRE ADVANCED 3D integrates precise positioning into the SABRE-SCAN™, a high-performance mobile mapping system with FARO® laser scanner and panoramic Ladybug®5 camera.
