An Inertial Navigation System (INS) provides real-time roll, pitch, and heading information that is useful for Machine Control applications. The INS outputs a filtered position and velocity that maintains a robust projection in case of GNSS outages (trees, RTK communication cuts, etc.).

The inertial sensor is also used to synchronize and stabilize additional equipment such as a LiDAR.

Tips

Some models from SBG Systems such as the Ellipse2-D integrate a bi-frequency or tri-frequency GNSS receiver allowing centimetric-level RTK or decimetric level Precise Point Positioning (Terrastar, Omnistar, etc.).

SBG inertial sensors are highly resistant to chock and vibrations (up to 8g RMS). They also embed specific algorithms to filter vibrations. When choosing accelerometers option, note that the 16 g accelerometer is the best option for harsh environments.
