Leading manufacturers are focusing on integrating advanced technological features to gain a competitive edge in the global market.

Government in various countries are taking various initiatives to develop smart cities. As the need to accommodate low-income and homeless citizens continues to persist, ruling authorities in various countries are investing in construction projects of residential and commercial buildings. Increasing number of construction projects in various countries has led to surge in demand for surveying purposes and constructing buildings. Implementation of total station helps the contractors to work in a cost-effective manner, saving on material, and labor. Through incorporation of advanced technological features in the total station components, the leading manufacturers are focusing on offering innovative total station components to gain a competitive edge over the other market players.

Technologically Advanced Features

In order to offer effective total station equipment, leading manufacturers are incorporating intelligent technological features. Incorporation of advanced technological features in total station components enables the end use industries to record accurate measurements. Attributed to various technologically advanced features, demand for total station components is likely to persist in the mining, meteorology, agriculture, and construction industry.

  • 3D Laser Scanning:

 As the need for collecting accurate spatial imaging arises, manufacturers are integrating smart features such as 3D laser scanning of the buildings. Incorporation of the 3D laser scanning building facilities allows end users to collect high-density spatial imaging along with various coordinates accurately and quickly. Implementation of 3D laser scanning coordinates also enables end users to scan accurate point cloud data. In addition, implementation of 3D laser scanning feature saves the cost and time of collecting data and forming coordinates through cameras and tools manually.

  • Multispectral Analysis:

With the incorporation of multispectral image analysis features, the equipment captures images with high spectral resolution. Implementation of the high spectral resolution offers the end users a better understanding of reflectance phenomena and image formation. The multispectral image sensor captures image data at explicit frequencies across the electromagnetic spectrum. Total station components equipped with the multispectral image analysis features helps constructors to identify stains, pathogens, and other unseen contaminants on the walls in various construction sites.

  • Drone Mapping:

Constructors are increasingly implementing drone mapping techniques, which allows the end users to collect data conveniently. With the drone mapping techniques, end users can access surveyor quality images to create accurate maps. Implementation of the drone mapping features also enable end users to produce complex data. On the basis of this information, constructors can make accurate measurements in terms of distance and space during the construction process.

  • Cloud Computing:

As the need for maintaining complex workflows in the construction industry persists, the leading manufacturers are focusing on implementing cloud computing features. Implementation of cloud computing services helps in outsourcing the data storage and processing to the other devices. With the implementation of cloud computing services, end users are less dependent on hardware limitations, and prevents data loss. Incorporation of cloud computing features also allows constructors to access crucial construction data quickly.

What are the Applications of Total Stations?

  • Agriculture Industry:

Growing need for non-contact measurement of crop growth has led to surge in demand for precision agriculture. With the implementation of on-the-go crop canopy sensors, end users can conveniently measure status of the crop growth. In addition, implementation of vehicle mounted measuring helps in measuring the status of crop nutrient. On the basis of this information, the end users can make real-time adjustments in order to fertilize volume. Adoption of total station components in the agriculture industry contributes towards the crop growth.

  • Construction Industry:

With the increasing number of construction projects, demand for making accurate measurements will continue to fuel demand for the total station components globally. As the need for collecting information for construction of buildings persists, constructors are shifting from traditional techniques of adopting cameras to implementing 3D laser scanning technological features. Equipped with advanced technological features, the total station components allows end users to quickly and conveniently collect information and image analysis. Based on this information, the constructors develop a strategy before initiating the construction process.

  • Mining:

As the need for collecting crucial data during the process of mining continues to remain high, adoption of the total station components in the mining industry is likely to increase. Implementation of total station components in the mining industry allows end users to measure the distance quickly attributed to the electronic distance meter/measurement (EDM) features. In addition, these equipment can conveniently be operated through a remote control, which helps in speeding up the mining process. Attributed to these factors, adoption of the total station in the mining industry is likely to remain high.

Overall, growing need for collecting information to formulate and implement strategies in various industries has led to surge in demand for total station components globally. Demand for the total station components is likely to remain concentrated in the construction industry. Attributed to advanced technological features, adoption of the total station components will continue to remain high globally.
