Trimble's New Integrated Camera Roving System for Geospatial Professionals Delivers High-Accuracy Positioning from Digital Images

System Provides 360 Degree Digital Panoramic Views for Positioning Applications

ESSEN, Germany, Oct. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) introduced today the Trimble® V10 Imaging Rover, an integrated camera system that precisely captures 360 degree digital panoramic images for visual documentation and measurement. The Trimble V10 Imaging Rover enables professionals in a broad range of industries—including survey, GIS, engineering, and oil & gas—to quickly capture rich, complete data of their surrounding environment. In the office, users can take measurements and create comprehensive deliverables using Trimble Business Center office software.

The announcement was made today at INTERGEO 2013, the world's largest conference on geodesy, geoinformatics and land management.

The Trimble V10 with Trimble VISION™ technology, leverages calibrated imaging sensors allowing digital images to be captured directly from the range pole. Twelve calibrated cameras—seven panoramic and five downward-looking— integrated in the Trimble V10 provide complete site visualization and documentation with a 60 MP panoramic image that can be used to make photogrammetric measurements.

Easy to use with one button operation, the Trimble V10 enables geospatial professionals to perform work where there are many features to collect or where features are complex or difficult to capture, such as oil and gas industrial facilities, and capture increased amounts of data in less time. Trimble Access™ field software running on the Trimble Tablet Rugged PC offers a simple and intuitive process to capture and review images and store observations.

The solution works standalone or can be seamlessly integrated with the Trimble R10 GNSS receiver and Trimble S-series total stations such as the VX, S8 and S6 so that panoramic images can easily be captured along with high-accuracy positions for an accurate geospatial dataset. Combined with the Trimble Tablet and Trimble Access field software, the Trimble V10 collects visual documentation of the jobsite with corresponding positioning information for subsequent office measurement.

To quickly generate traditional and innovative deliverables, Trimble Business Center provides intuitive close-range photogrammetry tools to efficiently extract survey grade measurements from the Trimble V10 images. The rich image data can also be later mined to satisfy new customer requests, saving time and reducing the need for revisits to the job site. 

"The Trimble V10 Imaging Rover ushers in a new era for geospatial data capture—positions from pictures," said Phil Sawarynski, business area director of Imaging Solutions for Trimble's Geospatial Division. "The capability to easily integrate panoramic images into traditional datasets and take measurements from those images sets a new standard for positioning applications."

Availability  

The Trimble V10 Imaging Rover is expected to be available in the first quarter of 2014 through Trimble's Geospatial Division distribution network. Trimble Access version 2013.40 and Trimble Business Center version 3.10 are expected to be available in the fourth quarter of 2013.
