Safety is key
According to Karl O’Toole from Position Partners, supplier of positioning solutions to the Australian surveying industry, a surveyor’s job is often characterized by working in unsafe environments. That’s why a surveying robot is even more suited for the land surveying industry as it allows surveyors and operators to work from a safe distance and to remove themselves from hazardous situations during line marking and construction.
Safety for surveyors and operators is also a priority for the Brisbane Airport Corporation. Paul Coughlan, Head of Infrastructure Development, says; “When you look at it from an overall health and safety aspect, that’s what technology can do. That is to actually say How do we make jobs and infrastructure a safer, more efficient way”.
Safety, productivity, speed and accuracy are all part of why this robot is being used more and more by surveyors for stake-out, pre-marking and other high-precision tasks.
