“We are very happy about the partnership with the Orbit GT team and the successful integration of the eagle eye data”, says Dr. Johannes Ludwig, managing director of eagle eye technologies. “With the modern and innovative products from Orbit, our high-quality and precise image and scan data can now be optimally visualized and used on the web for our customers.”
About eagle eye technologies GmbH
The fastly increasing demand for current and complete road database in many applications is a great challenge to the traditional geodetic services. The biggest problem is data acquisition. The information needed is expensive to obtain by traditional methods like aerial photogrammetry and terrestrial surveying.
The eagle eye technologies has been designed to collect road related data in a cost-effective way. eagle eye technologies defines the state of the art in mobile mapping technology by producing image and laserscanner data from a vehicle moving at highway speeds. eagle eye technologies is the answer to the challenge of quick updating road database. The eagle eye system architecture is modular and consists of basically two subsystems. The trajectory system supplies a 3D-position and orientation of the vehicle in space provided permanently by an inertial measurement unit (IMU), two differential GPS and odometer data. Precise synchronization of all sensors with a common time reference links the different modules to the trajectory, which is absolutely necessary to obtain optimum accuracy of data acquisition. The object data subsystem consists of several photogrammetric CCD cameras, digital documentation videos and laserscanners. This system can be used to selectively update road database precisely, rapidly and in economical way.
