Mobile LiDAR: Positioning Systems

In my most recent article for LiDAR News, I provide an overview of Positioning Systems for Mobile LiDAR.  It is a little more in depth than a blog posting I prepared back in 2009 titled Measuring Systems Part 1 - Positioning.

Mobile LiDAR is a system comprised of various components that are connected to provide a solution.

My belief is that the Position and Orientation System (POS) used to develop the Smoothed Best Estimate of Trajectory (SBET) is the distinguishing factor between available Mobile LiDAR systems. The ability to accurately position the vehicle has downstream advantages for the initial LiDAR processing and subsequent control adjustment.
