Inertial Navigation for Autonomous Vehicles
Location aware, everywhere
State-of-the-art inertial navigation for autonomous air, ground and marine vehicles

Trimble’s inertial navigation takes your autonomous vehicles places normal GNSS simply won’t reach. Let’s increase your autonomous program’s capabilities, efficiency, and your safety by coupling GNSS with INS.

Advanced Inertial Navigation
Autonomously navigate any environment
Unlock positioning data that’s always there and always accurate.

Trimble’s inertial + GNSS technology uses the current position of your moving vehicle and incorporates the estimations of speed, heading direction and course over elapsed time to keep your autonomous vehicle on track.

Uninterrupted precision

Absolute accuracy to within 2cm

Robust capabilities

Extreme climate and terrain ready

Maximum profit

Simple install, reduced development time

WHY TRIMBLE
Inertial navigation for agriculture

  • Evaluate construction progress and collect data for future planning
  • Guide heavy machinery such as dozers or compactors in any environment with continuous, reliable autonomous guidance
  • Monitor, identify and mitigate potential hazards using drones on a daily basis
  • Enhance surveying with heading, pitch and roll computations that are accurate to 0.09 degrees
  • Overcome extreme temperatures with ruggedized hardware
  • Save time and money by reducing the number of ground control points needed
  • Industry-leading customer support and engineering with a hands-on approach to customized solutions
WHY TRIMBLE
Inertial navigation for logistics operations
Never let interference or weather disrupt your flow.
  • Keep up with network demands and safely move more freight and passengers
  • Navigate surroundings and challenging environments where GNSS interference is common, such as congested ports and near metal structures
  • Keep automated vehicles moving and acquire precise position quickly when moving from GNSS-denied indoor environments to open outdoor spaces
  • Quickly assess asset integrity post-storm or damage event
  • Survey man-made structures in coastal waters and the ocean floor of harbors with precision accuracy
  • Industry-leading customer support and engineering with a hands-on approach to customized solutions always within reach
WHY TRIMBLE
Inertial navigation for mining
Improve the safety and accuracy of self-driving and automated mining equipment.
  • Augment autonomous subterranean vehicle geospatial data, even in GNSS-denied environments
  • Easily measure and aggregate volumes without the need to walk stockpiles
  • Maximize production and improve safety by using your autonomous operational assets to go to work in extreme conditions
  • Save on fuel, man-hours and overall costs by eliminating the need to redefine plot boundaries
  • Overcome obstructions or outages with continuous dead-reckoning positioning data to stay on track
  • Industry-leading customer support and engineering with a hands-on approach to customized solutions always within reach
