MapSense is a powerful software suite that processes GroundSense data to create, update, host, and deploy subsurface maps. It can fuse data from multiple runs into a single map and automatically update existing maps when changes are detected, ensuring the most up-to-date and accurate localization information.

  • Fuses data from multiple runs into a single map
  • Automatically updates existing maps after NavSense detects changes
  • Compatible with commonly used reference systems

Integration and Deployment

System Integration

WaveSense technology is designed for seamless integration with existing autonomous vehicle systems. The modular nature of GroundSense, combined with the flexible software interfaces of NavSense and MapSense, allows for easy incorporation into various vehicle architectures and autonomy stacks.

Testing and Calibration

Once integrated, the WaveSense system undergoes rigorous testing and calibration to ensure optimal performance. This process involves collecting initial subsurface data, creating baseline maps, and fine-tuning the algorithms to match the specific vehicle and operational environment.

Deployment and Monitoring

After successful testing, WaveSense-equipped vehicles can be deployed for commercial operations. Ongoing monitoring and data collection allow for continuous improvement of the subsurface maps and localization accuracy, ensuring that the system maintains peak performance over time.
