The SmartCart provides a self-contained mobile platform for transporting the pulseEKKO PRO and DVL for fast data acquisition. The pulseEKKO PRO is pushed (or pulled) along a line, with an integrated odometer providing equispaced triggering of data acquisition. Data acquisition rates change to accommodate survey speed, exploiting Sensors & Software’s unique DynaQ feature which allows for dynamic stacking (averaging) of data while moving.
This configuration is designed for manual movement of a pulseEKKO PRO over smooth to moderately rough terrain. The SmartCart is optimal for surveys where large areas need to be covered quickly and systematically. The embedded software provides easy to use ‘survey & map’ operation which logs data in a structured format enabling quick creation of plan maps that can be displayed with various GIS and CAD packages or in Google Earth. The bi-directional odometer triggers data acquisition when moved in one direction and provides back-up arrow positioning enabling ‘locate and mark’ real-time target mapping. The unit can be used with pulseEKKO PRO 200, 100, & 50 Mhz antennas
