AN-S (Absolute Navigation System)
AN-S Absolute Navigation System for SmartPed uses proven optical technology to provide a constant reference to SmartPed allowing highly accurate shot repeatability.
SmartPed has proven itself to offer exceptional performance day after day for live news and sports broadcasts. Its navigation system is based on precision encoded sensors monitoring every minute turn of the wheels to calculate the new XY position, relative to the home tile.
Depending on the style of the production, and environmental factors such as the floor, the pedestal will occasionally require re-referencing, and always after power-on. Re-referencing is done by returning to the home tile.
This homing process may not be convenient in all cases and broadcasters may wish to avoid any type of home tile on the studio floor.
In these cases SmartPed’s Absolute Navigation System option is ideal. AN-S uses ceiling mounted reflective markers and a small reference camera to constantly plot the SmartPed’s position in the studio providing maximum accuracy for shot repetition.
