Boresight Software

Boresight calibration is an essential part of INS and LiDAR integration and OxTS’ boresight software is critical for generating the most accurate point cloud possible. If the coordinate systems of the two devices do not match perfectly the georeferencing of LiDAR data will diverge over longer ranges and result in a less accurate point cloud. OxTS Georeferencer includes the ability to boresight supported LiDAR devices in order to ensure the user can produce clean and reliable data every time. The results of running a boresight calibration are sometimes very clear, and sometimes marginal, but the objective is the same – align all sensors on the vehicle to the same coordinate system to ensure a high level of accuracy, regardless of a predefined test scenario.

OxTS’ Georeferencer is a software tool developed by OxTS to combine INS navigation data with raw LiDAR data. It can be used alongside any OxTS INS to create a georeferenced 3D point cloud. OxTS Georeferencer takes a file collected with a LiDAR scanner (synchronized in real-time with an OxTS inertial navigation system), a processed navigation trajectory file from the OxTS INS, and some required configuration files, to create a LAS point cloud file that can be viewed in many third party LiDAR software packages.
