GISCafe Special Report: Digital Twin Technology Offers a Mirror Image for Productivity of the Future

Friday, March 22nd, 2019

Digital Twins – are they taking the technology world by storm? IDC recently noted that by 2020, 30% of global 2000 companies will be using data from Digital Twins to improve organizational productivity by as much as 25%. While it is not quite there, Gartner predicts the Digital Twin will reach the “Plateau of Productivity” within 5 to 10 years.

According to the 2018 Gartner Hype Cycle, Digital Twin is a trend that is now approaching the “Peak of Inflated Expectations” and is estimated to hit the “Plateau of Productivity” within 5 to 10 years. Image courtesy of Gartner, Inc.

GIS Industry Predictions for 2019 – Part IV

Thursday, January 24th, 2019

In this fourth installment of GISCafe Industry Predictions for 2019, we have topics such as GNSS performance, real-time data collection, better integration between GIS and CAD, digital cities, increased mobile presence, and mutually beneficial partnerships as part of the vision in the crystal ball for 2019. Widespread adoption of Geospatial technologies continues to grow and become enhanced.

In Sweden, archeologist Christer Andersson is locating the walls of ancient monasteries that have been buried for centuries. By using ground-penetrating radar, 3D imaging, and high-accuracy GNSS receivers, Andersson knows exactly where — and how far down — to tell excavators to dig.

Septentrio Adds Benefit to GNSS Systems with AsteRx-i S Integrated Positioning

Wednesday, August 29th, 2018

From Leuven, Belgium, GNSS receiver manufacturer Septentrio recently announced the addition of the AsteRx-i S to its GNSS/INS product portfolio.

According to company materials, the AsteRx-i S combines Septentrio’s compact, multi-frequency multi-constellation GNSS engine with ultralight external industrial grade MEMS based IMU. Calibrated for wide temperature ranges, the AsteRx-i S delivers accurate and reliable GNSS/IMU integrated positioning to the cm-level as well as full attitude at high update rates and low latency.

Key benefits for users:
• GNSS/INS positioning with 3D attitude: heading pitch and roll
• Multi-constellation, multifrequency, all-in-view RTK receiver
• AIM+ interference monitoring and mitigation system
• High-update rate, low-latency positioning and attitude
• Small & ultralight IMU (10 grams)
• Robust calibration for wide temperature ranges

Septentrio product manager Gustavo Lopez answered some questions for GISCafe Voice about the addition of AsteRx-I S to the open interface of Septentrio’s core technology.

1. What problems are you attempting to solve with the AsteRx-i S?
One important aspect in high-end positioning technology is relying on advanced systems which combine the benefits of GNSS with the benefits of industrial grade IMUs. A GNSS/INS solution gives extra possibilities to applications working in difficult environments or where 3D reliable orientation is needed.

2. Is the technology for AsteRx-i S something you created in house or was it as a result of an acquisition?

The AsteRx-i S (same as the AsteRx-i V) uses an external quality industrial grade IMU however all the GNSS algorithmic engine is Septentrio’s proprietary bringing the stamp of quality and performance for what we are normally well known for. This means that the product also inherits all the intuitive and open interface of Septentrio thus making it easy-to-integrate in multiple applications.
