With the strong support of SBG Systems, ACTRIS revolutionizes GIS data collection method by releasing VIAPIX, a vehicle-borne image-base mapping system. The company chose the IG-500E for real-time image georeferencing. This miniature inertial sensor directly merges inertial data with GPS and odometer information for the best performance.

Topcon Positioning Group announces the release of the GR-5 receiver with Vanguard technology, designed to optimize tracking and performance.

FARO Technologies, Inc. announced today it has released the new FARO Laser Scanner Focus3D X 330. Building on the success of the FARO Laser Scanner Focus3D, the new Focus3D X 330 surpasses previous models in functionality and performance. With a range almost three times greater than previous models, the Focus3D X 330 can scan objects up to 330 meters away and in direct sunlight. With its integrated GPS receiver, the laser scanner is able to correlate individual scans in post-processing making it ideal for surveying based applications.

Today, at the European Microwave Week tradeshow, Infineon Technologies introduced the latest generation of its pico GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) modules for smartphones. BGM1143N9 is a combination of a low-insertion-loss pre-filter and Infineon’s high performance low noise amplifier (LNA) in a TSNP-9 package. It is the smallest module worldwide, features very high linearity, lowest noise figure and supports all navigation standards including GPS, GLONASS and BeiDou.

Topcon Positioning Group announces the DS total station can now be purchased as a robotic unit (DS-105AC+) or motorized unit and later upgraded to a fully robotic instrument with a simple firmware upgrade.
