PRODUCTS

Mapping tool

KARTTA v1.0 is a web-based interface for creating and manipulating geometric 3D maps used by PAIKKA, a sophisticated 3D positioning solution for mobile machines by GIM Robotics. KARTTA is a platform independent interface for everything related to map handling.

SUPPORTED SENSORS

Paikka supports the following sensor modalities:

  • 3D LIDAR(s)
  • IMU
  • Wheel odometry
  • RTK-GNSS

FEATURES

  • Full 3D mapping suite, one user interface
  • Platform independent web application
  • Intuitive 3D data visualisation
  • Advanced 3D mapping algorithms
  • Versatile map manipulation
  • Highly configurable

 

MAIN FUNCTIONALITIES:

The KARTTA is a web-based user interface for creating the geometric maps used by PAIKKA, a map-based positioning software by GIM Robotics. The tool supports all the steps of the mapping process and contains the following main functionalities:

  1. Mapping data validation
  2. Map creation with advanced graph-SLAM algorithm
  3. 3D mapping data visualisation
  4. Map manipulation and semi-automatic map validation
  5. Map merging

 

KARTTA ARCHITECTURE

The tool consists of two main parts: front-end and back-end. The front-end is a platform independent web application for 3D data visualisation and controlling map creation and manipulation. The back-end is responsible for most of the data processing and acts as an interface to the mapdb-file and mapping data.

The backend refers to the part of KARTTA running on a cloud server. The back-end handles most of the heavy computations related to mapping, whereas the front-end is responsible for the controls and data visualisation. Some data processing is done on the front-end to ensure smooth user experience. The mapping data files can be large, and they are managed by Google cloud service.  

BENEFITS

Efficiency
Uses the same sensor infrastructure as PAIKKA to produce different maps.
Scalability
Division of environment into sub-maps enables mapping of vast environments in real-time.
Robustness
Mapping works efficiently and reliably even in highly dynamic environments.
Tunability
Optimising the performance for capturing the feature details and dynamic changes.
