Trimble positioning and orientation solutions offer robust systems that allow an application to function even close to buildings, bridges and other obstacles, where precise positioning is a challenge.
Construction machinery relies heavily on reliable positioning and orientation technology for machine control. Trimble positioning and orientation solutions offer robust systems that allow an application to function even close to buildings, bridges, and other obstacles, where precise positioning is a challenge.
GNSS systems used in the construction heavy equipment industry are typically categorized as either “indicate only” (uses GNSS as a guide to an operator) or fully automatic (exact information can be programmed into the machine for machine control).
“Indicate only” Applications
Work with confidence in applications where you are looking to provide the operator an “indicate only” solution, with robust positioning to a single point for grading and compaction.
FULLy Automatic applications
Full autonomy is suitable for construction applications when you need clear, reliable guidance for blade control in any environment. Trimble GNSS/INS solutions are needed anytime an operator needs to know the two points of the blade or implement and how it impacts the earth. For example, a dozer on a tilting plane would need to adjust the corners of the blade to “carve” the path.
When choosing a GNSS/INS solution for your application, it’s important to consider the surrounding environment the application will be working in:
Given the usual harsh environments, Trimble experts can offer a customized solution that consists of ruggedized antennas and GNSS/INS receivers and enclosures to best fit the needs of the integrators application.
