Movement of Stationary Beacons

Postby tostin96 » Thu May 23, 2019 2:30 pm


I am very interested in using your technology for a special purpose. I read that the system is based on trilateration algorithms. My question goes specific to what type of measurement errors will the software generate if the stationary beacons move after the maps is frozen (I´m not talking about large displacements, but for example the displacement caused by thermal deformation at the mounting points of the stationary beacons)?

Thanks in advance!

There would not be a simple answer, because it depends on the size of the map and type of them - elongated, square, etc. - also, what kind of displacement - horizontal, vertical ...

Our system is precise, but in normal conditions, thermal deformation would be just below our errors, so, we won't be able to notice them or guarantee the notice.

Before, that air conditions would contribute significantly more, because air temperature may affect the calculations significantly more. However, it also depends on what exactly you want to measure.
