Trimble (booth 1254) introduces at the show today the AP20-C, the latest addition to its AP Series of embedded GNSS-inertial OEM boards plus inertial measurement unit (IMU). Using a compact, custom-built IMU based on commercial Micro Electromechanical Machined (MEMS) inertial sensors, the AP20-C enables system integrators to achieve high-rate position and orientation measurements with "exceptional accuracy", says Sunnyvale, California-based Trimble. The AP20-C is designed for continuous mobile positioning in poor signal environments and high-accuracy direct georeferencing of imaging sensors.

"Compact in form and low in power consumption, the AP20-C can provide cost-effective, accurate, reliable and robust position and orientation measurements suitable for a broad range of survey and mapping applications, including airborne, terrestrial and marine mapping as well as guidance for unmanned vehicle applications," says Joe Hutton, director of inertial technology and airborne products at Applanix, a Trimble subsidiary.
