Smart Antenna Technology: Stake-Out Jobs Made Easy

Data is king in the construction industry. New technology is now helping make data collection a little bit easier, enabling construction professionals to collect more accurate measurements with high-tech devices.

One such piece of new technology comes from Leica Geosystems, which is part of Hexagon, offering the Leica iCON gps 70 T smart antenna as part of its Leica iCON GPS 70 series.

With the latest GNSS technology smart antenna such as this, measurements become quicker and more accurate due to the tilt compensation, resistance to magnetic interferences, and calibration-free usage. Construction workers are to measure and stake out points quicker without the need to keep the pole vertical to level the bubble.

With this particular tool, the combination of the latest GNSS technology and inertial measurement unit enables the tilt compensation, which in turn extends the measurement possibilities, improves quality and accuracy of the collected data, and reduces errors.

The construction jobsite can be a hazardous place to work, but new technology is helping make stake-out jobs on construction a little bit easier and safer.
