Sensor integration in a low cost land mobile mapping system.

Madeira S, Gonçalves JA, Bastos L - Sensors (Basel) (2012)

Bottom Line: Mobile mapping is a multidisciplinary technique which requires several dedicated equipment, calibration procedures that must be as rigorous as possible, time synchronization of all acquired data and software for data processing and extraction of additional information.To decrease the cost and complexity of Mobile Mapping Systems (MMS), the use of less expensive sensors and the simplification of procedures for calibration and data acquisition are mandatory features.The results discussed here show that this goal has been achieved.

ABSTRACT
Mobile mapping is a multidisciplinary technique which requires several dedicated equipment, calibration procedures that must be as rigorous as possible, time synchronization of all acquired data and software for data processing and extraction of additional information. To decrease the cost and complexity of Mobile Mapping Systems (MMS), the use of less expensive sensors and the simplification of procedures for calibration and data acquisition are mandatory features. This article refers to the use of MMS technology, focusing on the main aspects that need to be addressed to guarantee proper data acquisition and describing the way those aspects were handled in a terrestrial MMS developed at the University of Porto. In this case the main aim was to implement a low cost system while maintaining good quality standards of the acquired georeferenced information. The results discussed here show that this goal has been achieved.

f11-sensors-12-02935: System components during survey.

Mentions: In the previous test errors introduced by the DGS were not present. This second test will account for those errors. The system was setup in the simpler way that it can be. The used DGS was the GPS-CAMSYNC box and the cameras used were the same as in the test described in the previous section. System components, when in surveying, are represented in Figure 11.
