PERSONNEL POSITIONING IN 3D WITH HIGH ACCURACY, INDOOR / OUTDOOR / HYBRID

 

SYSNAV has developed and patented magneto-inertial positioning, a breakthrough technology which measures the movement of the wearer and reconstruct the trajectory without the need of any localization infrastructure (GPS, radio beacon, Bluetooth beacon, etc).

 

SYSNAV has developed several personnel positioning solutions, which rely on (1) electronic modules specifically developed for these scenarios, and (2) software modules for real-time processing or post-processing of location data.

 

APPLICABLE SCENARIOS

 

DEFENSE

Geolocating the dismounted Soldier

In partnership with key players in the security and defense markets, SYSNAV is developing personnel positioning solutions capable of operating in GPS-denied conditions. Developing equipment dedicated to first responders (firefighters, soldiers) is a core focus for SYSNAV.

 

INDUSTRIES

Many industrial challenges can be resolved or improved with accurate positioning information in GPS-denied environments. As examples:

  • Geolocating precisely critical maintenance points in large and complex industrial environments,
  • Guiding maintenance operators to prevent loss of time during interventions,
  • Optimizing of industrial processes involving pedestrian displacements,
  • Locating and tracking vulnerable agents and operators

The combination of PLD module and software modules allows multiple use cases.

 

Industrial Processes Optimization
  • Fast and easy simultaneous recording of operator’s movements in a facility
  • Ability to reliably visualize and diagnose, at each stage of the oprator’s tracks using SYSNAV analytics solutions
  • Enables industries to reconfigure and optimize their industrial facility and/or industrial processes
Ensure reliable and compliant trips on site
  • Real time positioning and tracking of visitors and agents
  • Speed ​​and fluidity of intervention in the event of an incident
  • Reduced training time
  • Verification of displacement compliance: geofencing
Ensure the security and location of vulnerable agents
  • Real time localization
  • Alert launched automatically with the “dead man” function
  • Speed ​​and fluidity of intervention in the event of an incident
  • Increased surveillance of risk areas: geofencing
  • Precise positioning indoor or outdoor
Ensure rapid on-site intervention in the event of an incident
  • Identification of critical points on the site map
  • Prior definition of the ideal trajectory
  • Real-time progress monitoring
Efficiently locate points of interest – maintenance and intervention
  • Simple integration of points of interest
  • Real-time guidance, in complex environments
  • Save time when searching for points of interest

 

THE TECHNOLOGY

 

PLD Electronic Modules: WATA and TMI

The Personal Location Devices (PLD), are composed of a set of magneto-inertial sensors coupled to wireless transmission. SYSNAV has developed two versions of PLD to date: WATA (more compact) and TMI (more sophisticated and more powerful).

 

Software Modules

The algorithms developed by SYSNAV merge, filter and then analyze the data from the sensors and allow the reconstruction of the trajectories to be carried out. The map-matching software is used to download existing maps to improve the positioning result and display the trajectory. Trajectories can thus be analyzed by management specialists in order to modify and improve industrial processes. The PLD has many features: the positioning of the person, the dead man alert, geofencing, the tagging of a point of interest, the mapping of a 2 or 3D maps on a plan, guidance, planning and communication between devices.
