Sonardyne’s PIES to Monitor Disruptive US Gulf Current

Oceanographic equipment developed by underwater technology company Sonardyne International will be used as part of a major US$2 million scientific study of disruptive ocean currents in the US Gulf of Mexico. The multi-year deployment, led by the University of Rhode Island (URI)’s Graduate School of Oceanography, will monitor the Loop Current System (LCS) using Sonardyne’s Pressure Inverted Echo Sounders (PIES). The LCS is the dominant ocean circulation feature in the Gulf of Mexico. It influences all ocean processes in the Gulf and has implications for a wide range of human and natural activities, from oil exploration to coastal eco-systems, but,... (read more)

Mapping Canberra's Tree Canopy with Airborne Lidar

Transport Canberra and City Services (TCCS) recently engaged 1Spatial, a leading company in managing geospatial data, to analyse and extract aerial laser scanning data. The project was aimed at accelerating the establishment of baseline data for the urban tree canopy coverage of Canberra, the capital of Australia. The relationships between climate change challenges, sustainability goals and community expectations are key drivers in TCCS’s development of an urban tree planting programme. Informative and current data sets are being used to inform management strategies by overlaying age, density and condition data and proposing future canopy density targets. Current baseline data The establishment of... (read more)

Innoviz Announces Two Solid State Automotive Lidar Solutions

Innoviz Technologies has announced two new solid-state lidar solutions: the automotive-grade InnovizPro and the after-market InnovizOne. Both InnovizOne and InnovizPro offer high-definition intelligent 3D sensing and an accurate, reliable scan of a vehicle’s surroundings. Since the sensors are solid state, they include no mechanical moving parts, and this enables Innoviz to offer a smaller product footprint at mass-market prices. The devices also use Innoviz’s proprietary technology, MEMS, and detector design, which enables them to adapt to different environments, such as low light at night time, bright sunlight, and varying weather conditions. The InnovizOne automotive grade lidar features a detection range... (read more)
