White Papers by Inertial Labs Inc

  • Magnetometers Calibrations and the Inertial Labs INS-P

    Magnetometers measure the direction, strength, or relative change of a magnetic field at a particular location. Though phonetically complex, magnetometers can be common devices used in everyday life such as compasses and metal detectors. In general, there are two basic types of survey...
  • Point Cloud Generation for Mapping and Scanning Industries Using the INS-B

    A point cloud is created by scanning an area with a 3D Laser Scanner. This scan is then imported into post-processing software (unless desired accuracy is obtained in real-time) where errors are removed. After processing the data, modeling software is used where the clouds can either be...
  • Utilizing Methods of Precision Agriculture to Create a Sustainable Tomorrow

    Precision Agriculture is one of the most used cases of autonomy in this century. Recent reports show that by the year 2025, Precision Agriculture is expected to grow to become a 43.4-billion-dollar industry worldwide(1). For an industry that didn’t begin gaining traction until the 1990’s, it’s...
  • Affordable and Hassle-Free Solutions for Obsolete Sensors

    Companies that adopted the first microelectromechanical (MEMS) accelerometers and inertial measurement sensors in the 1990s have struggled to find affordable solutions to replace sensors that have been discontinued due to the advent of newer technologies. Although the newer generations of...
  • Twenty Years in the Making: The Inertial Labs Robust and Modular Kalman Filter

    Sensor fusion plays a large role in any device that is attempting to product estimated, quantifiable data. Sensor fusion is the ability to bring together inputs from multiple sensors to producer a single model whose result is more accurate than that of a the individual inputs alone. There are...
  • U.S. Air Force Antenna Reference Unit employs Inertial Labs AHRS

    A shift towards a new generation of advanced Command Post Terminals (CPT) is happening gradually on several frontiers. This new generation, known as the Family of Advanced Beyond-Line-of- Sight Terminals (FAB-T) is expanding upon existing foundations by adding new software and hardware. The...
  • How Drones are Transforming Construction and Infrastructure Inspection

    Ensuring our infrastructure is running, and our job and construction sites are safe should be a top priority. However, the maintenance and inspections needed is inherently dangerous and often time-consuming and repetitive, making drones instrumental and valuable tools. Drones can capture all...
  • Inertial Labs Direct Georeferencing for Phootogrammetry

    Aerial Photogrammetric analysis may be applied to a single image or high-speed imagery and remote sensing to detect, measure and record complex 3D motion fields. This is done by feeding measurements and image analysis into computational models that estimate the relative motions and positions...
