Advantages of Robotic Survey Equipment

When it comes to surveying equipment and surveying accessories, we receive numerous questions and inquiries about robotic survey equipment.  A robotic total station can be a very wise investment.  GPServ can help you evaluate the type of surveying equipment and surveying accessories you need, including whether or not robotic survey equipment is right for you and your business.  Let’s look at a few advantages of using robotic survey equipment vs. an optical station:

  1. Remote Operation
    One of the most attractive advantages robotic survey equipment has over optical surveying equipment is that it can be remotely operated and measure without a reflector.  This can be extremely advantages in situations where soft or uneven ground makes it hazardous for an individual to navigate.  Remote operation also allows you to cut down on crew, which translates into additional cost savings.
  2. Reliability
    Robotic survey equipment operates as long as the battery is charged.  It is reliable and can work non-stop all-day long.  It is the one “staff” person that does not complain, call in sick or take lunch breaks!
  3. Data Processing
    When it comes to surveying accessories, a laptop is considered a “must have”. One popular feature of robotic survey equipment is its ability to transfer data immediately to a computer.  There are even apps that can take the data and make calculations, create maps, etc.
  4. Accuracy and Precision

Optical surveying equipment and surveying accessories are at the mercy of the human operation. Robotic survey equipment, however, is capable of changing angles more precisely, accurately and faster than most humans.
