Trimble announced today the Trimble V10 Imaging Rover is now available through its Geospatial Division distribution network. 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 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 that can be used to make photogrammetric measurements.
Easy to use with one button, the Trimble V10 enables geospatial professionals to capture large amounts of data in less time. 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 seamlessly integrated with the Trimble R10 GNSS receiver and Trimble S-series total stations such as the Trimble S8, so panoramic images can easily be captured along with positions for a highly accurate geospatial dataset.
Combined with the Trimble Tablet Rugged PC and Trimble Access field software, the Trimble V10 collects visual documentation of the jobsite with corresponding positioning information for subsequent office measurement. Trimble Access™ offers a simple and intuitive process to capture and review images and store observations. 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 mined later to satisfy new customer requests, saving time and reducing the need for revisits to the job site.
“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.”
