Applanix Introduces POS LV 120 for Improving Land Mobile Mapping Productivity

Totally Redesigned System is Smaller, Lighter and More Economical

Richmond Hill, ON, October 10, 2012 – Applanix (, a leader in products and solutions for mobile mapping and positioning, introduced today POS LV 120, the latest version of its positioning and orientation systems for land vehicles.  Using commercial Micro-Electro-Mechanical (MEMS) inertial measurement unit (IMU) technology, the Applanix POS LV 120 is a small, lightweight system and provides an economical solution for any continuous positioning and orientation application.

POS LV 120 is a fully integrated, turnkey position and orientation system, utilizing integrated inertial technology to generate stable, reliable and repeatable positioning solutions for land-based vehicle applications. Redesigned to be smaller and lighter, it maintains identical data interfaces and software compatibility with the established POS LV line of products. 
“With a MEMS IMU and a 220 channel, dual-antenna GNSS receiver integrated into a single enclosure, the POS LV 120 is a cost-effective GNSS-Inertial solution designed to support many types of land-based mobile mapping projects,” said Kevin Andrews, Product Manager for Land Products at Applanix.  “The integrated system is smaller than the standard POS LV computer system (PCS), making it ideal for use in lightweight applications such as robotics, autonomous vehicles, centerline mapping, asset mapping and short-range direct georeferencing.”
POS LV 120 is available now through the Applanix sales network.
