The Backpack Kit includes:
The backpack harness can cover a large majority of pedestrian applications (pedestrian paths, indoor surveys, industrial surveys, etc.), but also motorized applications as presented below.
This chassis is adjustable to fit any type of body type and size.
The operator checks the overall height and ability to pass through doorways or any other obstacles that may be encountered on the way.
WARNING: Be careful, an individual on the move may require a few centimetres more than an individual at a standstill, always provide a few centimetres of safety.
It is possible to use the system while moving on a vehicle such as: electric scooter, electric tricycle, pendulum vehicle.
The operator will take responsibility for the training required to master the machine when carrying the system on his back.
The fact of motorizing the operator in outdoor conditions then makes it possible to activate a particular calculation mode in the Qinertia® tracking software from SBG-Systems®.
To optimize the calculation, it is recommended that you follow a particular procedure several times throughout an active project (session).
This procedure, which we will refer to as the “high dynamics” procedure, is described below:
This procedure should be followed at the beginning and end of the work session:
Safety instructions specific to each mode of locomotion apply.
It is the user’s responsibility to ensure compliance with the legislation concerning these modes of locomotion.
It is not recommended to change the mode of locomotion during the same scan. If this is an operational imperative, then we recommend performing two scans with suitable overlap areas.
We remind you that the system is not designed to operate under the following climatic or environmental conditions:
In the case of a dark indoor environment, the MS-96 system has lighting to illuminate the scene.
The dash cams are tuned to achieve the best possible result, so the camera settings adapt to the external conditions. However, some situations may involve some trade-offs. It is therefore advisable to reduce the walking speed to avoid the blur of moving the cameras.
WARNING: even with lighting, some indoor environments may require system lighting to be turned on to maximize the amount of light available.
In addition to the recommendations listed so far, it is important to move along a trajectory that is as linear as possible in order to optimize the quality of the measurement. The constancy and regularity of displacement will produce a data with a constant distribution of points in space and therefore a better reading/exploitation.
It is also very important to avoid sudden movements that can disturb the calculation of the trajectory (jumping, sudden acceleration, rapid pivot on oneself, etc.):
On-site staff can continue to circulate normally without interfering with the measure, but favour quieter moments to limit masks.
If a scout is assisting with the measurement, the scout should not stay in close proximity to the operator as its own position could interfere with the measurements.
