The Trimble V10 Imaging Rover, introduced at INTERGEO 2013, enables professionals in a broad range of industries to quickly capture rich positioning data and 360 degree documentation of their surrounding environment. In the office, users can take measurements and create comprehensive deliverables using Trimble Business Center office software.
The V10 uses calibrated imaging sensors that allow digital images to be captured directly from the range pole. Twelve calibrated cameras—seven panoramic and five downward-looking—integrated in the device provide complete site visualisation and documentation that can be used to make photogrammetric measurements.
Metric imaging is ideal for data capture when there are many features to collect or where features are complex or difficult to reach. The solution works standalone or can be combined with the Trimble R10 GNSS receiver and Trimble S-series total stations, so that panoramic images can be captured along with positions for a highly accurate geospatial dataset.
“Since our initial introduction in the fourth quarter of 2013, the market reaction has been extremely positive,” said Phil Sawarynski, business area director of Imaging Solutions for Trimble’s Geospatial Division. “Customers engaged in a range of industries including surveying and engineering, civil infrastructure and oil and gas immediately see that this technology can transform the way they work. We’re also seeing significant interest from outside our traditional customer base of geospatial professionals. By reducing the time needed for fieldwork and increasing both the depth and utility of data available for analysis, the V10 is an ideal imaging solution for a variety of positioning applications.”
The Trimble V10 Imaging Rover is now available through Trimble’s Geospatial Division distribution network.
