Robust, self-sufficient localization for vehicles also in GNSS denied environment
With iLIANE, iMAR provides a setup for navigation and localization in GNSS denied environment. The system contains the optical system (LiDAR), the inertial system (iNAT), the data processor, the real-time processing software, the power conditioning.
Due to the sensor setup, iLIANE works in both day-light and night environment with the same performance. It s used for both to navigate within a 3D map without any need of GNSS and also to support the generation of a 3D geo referenced map. Navigation without as well as with GNSS is supported with high accuracy.
small size, highly robust, easy to use "plug & play"
operable on each vehicle’s roof
internal LiDAR, IMU, GNSS receiver (all-frequencies / all-constellations, SBAS & RTK support, single and dual antenna support), wheel sensor interface supported if desired
available with all class of INS performance, from MEMS over FOG to RLG based systems of series iNAT (commercial / industrial) and iSULONA / iCOMBANA / iPRENA (defence / protection)
excellent accuracy also in operation without any GNSS and without any wheel sensor – 0.1 … 0.5 % distance travelled.
Automatic map generation and capability to use this map during future travels. Map referencing capability to a definable Reference Frame (WGS84, ETRS89, UTM) for geo localzation. This feature is available in real-time, i.e. the vehicle will benefit immedeately from its own generated map or the map of another vehicle within a convoi.
Capability to improve and adapt previous generated maps with each following travel
iLIANE provides position and heading infrmation on roads and off-road, in urban canyons, within buildings, underground, in mining areas , in tunnels, on the battlefield (e.g. to secure vehicles in minefields) etc.
The accuracy without GNSS aiding is about 0.1 ... 0.5 % of distance travelled (without using a previously acquired map) and within sub decimeter range within a previously acquired map.
