Topcon’s IP-S2, ‘Fast GIS data collection’
Portland, Ore. and Seattle, March 29 — The PPI Group announced today it has added Topcon’s vehicle–mounted, mobile 3D precision mobile mapping and survey system to its offerings for the Infrastructure and Mapping industry. Topcon, a leader in the manufacturing of cutting edge survey solutions, released the IP-S2 to overcome the challenges of mapping linear features to a high level of accuracy.
The IP-S2 obtains accurate vehicle positions using three technologies: a dual frequency GNSS receiver establishes a geospatial position; an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) provides vehicle altitude; and a connection to the vehicle CAN bus or external wheel encoders obtain odometry information. All of these technologies together in one system make for a highly accurate 3D position for the vehicle in locations where satellite signals can be blocked by obstructions. Richard Hill, PPI’s Mobile Mapping Technology Expert, says, "The IP-S2 is a system that is accomplishing things that people never thought possible. The ability to map and photograph at highway speeds is reinventing the way that people collect mapping and survey field data."
