LIVERMORE, Calif. – January 29, 2010 – Topcon Positioning Systems (TPS) and Mandli Communications, Inc. will present a seminar on ‘Building a 3D Mobile Mapping Vehicle for Highway Management Applications,’ at the SPAR 2010 conference.
The conference will be held at the Woodlands Waterway
Marriott Hotel and Convention Center in Houston, Texas. The presentation is
scheduled for February 9.
The joint presentation by Topcon and Mandli
will focus on the core systems involved in mobile mapping data collection.
Topcon will detail the functions and operation of their own core positioning
components for mobile collection systems. This includes the IP-S2, which
consists of a GNSS receiver, an IMU and wheel odometry. Mandli will present the
point-of-view of an OEM working with their components, and how they can be
integrated into an existing platform.
Richard Rybka, Topcon’s IP-S2
mobile mapping specialist and partner development manager, said, “The
presentation discusses the details of a highway management application, but much
can be learned by anyone who is interested in collecting accurate data quickly
and safely for any asset management application. The integration of LIDAR, IMU,
GPS and 360 degree photographs is a revolutionary change in field data
collection that has the potential to save companies a lot of money in their data
Ray Mandli, president of the company, said, “We
have verified through rigorous field testing that the Topcon system meets our
requirements for measuring precision positioning of assets. We plan to integrate
the product into several of our projects in the 2010 collection
