Advanced Construction Positioning and Measurement Systems

Опубликовано в Other Products

We provide advanced 3D positioning and measurement systems for indoor and GPS denied environments, delivering an accuracy of ±2 cm.

Applications across the construction sector include Indoor/Outdoor Surveys, Snagging, AR, Machine Control, Crane Safety, Depth Measurement and Automated Guided Vehicles. However, flexibility and the option for bespoke adaptation means there are no limits to the potential applications of this cutting-edge technology.

We are particularly keen to talk with integrators and technical partners who wish to explore just how effective these systems can be when applied to real-world problems.

about vbox indoor positioning vips

The VBOX Indoor Positioning System (VIPS) utilises the latest Ultra-Wideband (UWB) technology to calculate real-time 3D position at rates up to 100 times a second. The ability to record coordinates of individual locations enables you to accurately revisit them at a later time.

What is it?

The VBOX Precision Ranging System (VPRS) dynamically measures the distance between two objects in real-time with an update rate of up to 100 times a second and an accuracy of ±2 cm, in any environment. It is suitable for any application where you need to calculate a real-time separation distance between static or dynamic objects and does not rely on GPS, which means the system is not affected by interference from atmospheric conditions or signal reflections and can also be used indoors.

What are the applications?

Designed by in-house Racelogic engineers, bespoke adaptations are available to meet customer needs, placing no limits on the potential applications of this innovative technology.

We are already in discussions with a variety of construction partners to implement VPRS and it is currently in operation in a major construction project in San Francisco. Operating in a complex urban environment with highly restricted GPS signal access, VPRS is delivering accurate measurement of foundation pile drilling depth in a situation where traditional measurement technologies are unable to operate.

How does VPRS work?

VPRS consists of a receiver (rover) and a beacon, which communicate using Ultra-Wideband (UWB). The rover is placed on one of the objects, the beacon is placed on the second object and the distance between each is then calculated by the rover to an accuracy of up to two centimetres.

There is no need to survey the position of either device, install any site control system or perform complex setup routines. Up to 5 system pairs can be used simultaneously and are easily configured using the free VPRS setup software.

VIPS Rover BeaconSpecifications

  • Update rate: Variable (up to 100Hz)
  • Position accuracy: ±2cm
  • Resolution: 1mm
  • Range:> 100m
  • IP Rating: IP 67
  • Operating temperature: -30°C to +60°C
  • Size (of each beacon): 124mm diameter, 74.5mm height
  • Weight (of each beacon): 350g
  • Power requirements: 6.5 - 30 V DC, 100mA
  • Communication with data logger (rover): RS232 / CAN

How do we get such high accuracy?

VPRS on VBOX Touch 350We have built our own custom hardware, software and calibration routines which has resulted in an industry leading accuracy of ±2cm. Having a variable update rate (up to 100 Hz) and low latency makes the system ideal for static or dynamic applications and we also temperature calibrate the beacons, to ensure accuracy in all conditions.

How do I access the data?

The data can be viewed live on a Racelogic VBOX Touch and points can be saved to an SD card. The position and speed are also output over an RS232 link or onto a CAN bus, allowing easy connection to third party equipment.

VBOX Indoor Positioning System

Опубликовано в Other Products

What is it?

The VBOX Indoor Positioning System (VIPS) is an advanced system for measuring and recording real-time 3D position to an accuracy of ±2cm in areas where GPS is not available, making it an ideal tool for construction applications indoors and in urban areas.

VIPS 3D positioning

The digital display provides real-time, dynamic measurements in challenging environments while the recording function allows you to save coordinates to accurately revisit them at a later time.

What are the applications?

VIPS has been designed by in-house Racelogic engineers, providing us with the agility for bespoke adaptations to meet customer needs, with no limits placed on the potential applications of this cutting-edge technology.

We are already in discussions with a variety of construction partners to implement VIPS for the following applications:

Engineer

  • Indoor/Outdoor Surveys
  • Snagging
  • Augmented Reality (AR)
  • Machine Control
  • Crane Safety
  • Depth Measurement
  • Automated Guided Vehicles

However, the flexibility of VIPS makes it suitable for any application that requires accurate measurement and recording of 3D positioning.

We are particularly keen to talk with integrators and technical partners wishing to explore just how effective VIPS can be when applied to real-world problems.

How does VIPS work?

Fixed Ultra-Wideband (UWB) beacons are placed around the perimeter of the operation area (eg floor plan of building or construction site), in known positions which have been manually surveyed using a handheld laser, Total Station or, if time is of the essence, a self-survey can also be performed. The accuracy of the known beacon positions directly corelates to the accuracy of the output measurement, allowing for flexibility in required accuracy verses set up time. The beacons are completely stand-alone, and can be battery powered, making the deployment very rapid.

The hand-held receiver continuously communicates with the beacons and triangulates its position. This data is combined with the measurements from a highly accurate inertial measurement system, providing a real-time 3D position to within 2cm.

How do we get such high accuracy?

Over the 5 years it has taken to develop VIPS, we have built our own custom hardware, software and calibration routines which has resulted in an industry leading accuracy of less than 2cm. We temperature calibrate the beacons to ensure accuracy in all conditions.

How do I access the data?

The data can be viewed live on a Racelogic VBOX Touch and points can be saved to an SD card. The position and speed are also output over an RS232 link or onto a CAN bus, allowing easy connection to third party equipment.
