Drone LIDAR/Imagery Sensor
True View® 615/620
The True View® 615/620 is GeoCue’s second generation LIDAR/camera fusion platform designed from the ground up to generate high accuracy 3D colorized LIDAR point clouds using the new Riegl miniVUX-2UAV. Featuring dual GeoCue Mapping Cameras, a Riegl miniVUX-2UAV laser scanner and Applanix Position and Orientation System (POS), the result is a true 3D high accuracy imaging sensor (3DiS). With its wide 120° fused field of view, the True View 615/620 provides high accuracy 3D color mapping with excellent vegetation penetration and wire detection in a payload package of 3-3.5 kg.
Two GeoCue Mapping Cameras provide a 120° field of view, coincident with the laser scanner track. The 25° oblique mounting ensures the sides of objects are imaged, allowing a true 3D colorization of all LIDAR points.
The Riegl miniVUX-2UAV laser scanner provides range of up to 120m with p to five returns per outgoing pulse. The miniVUX-2 is Riegl’s update of the miniVUX-1, doubling the pulse Repitition Rate to 200,000 pulses per second.
A Google® Coral TensorFlow Processing Unit provides exceptional power as the True View central controller. The CCU coordinates all on-board functions of the system.
A sensor can be no more accurate than the position and orientation system (POS). GeoCue incorporates the industry’s most accurate and reliable POS – the Applanix APX series. The True View 615 features the industry standard APX-15. For exceptional angular accuracy, the True View 620 upgrades the system to the APX-20. APX post-processing is accessed via the included True View Evo software, providing “pay-as-you-go” access to SmartBase and Trimble PP-RTX positioning services.
True Track® Flightlines
Post-processing software uses positioning system information to perform roll compensation at the individual scan line level. This allows reduced overlap between flight lines, increasing platform flight efficiency.
True Time Synchronization
Fusing sensor data requires exceptional timing synchronization among the positioning system and all sensors. True View’s System Synchronization Unit (a GeoCue designed Master Clock), ensures sensor coordination at the microsecond level.
