About Robotic Total Stations
Robotic total stations provide control of instruments to operators working at a remote location. The operator can hold the reflector to control the total station from a particular point. Robotic total stations have advantages over manually operated total stations. The development of robotic total stations has allowed users to perform multiple calculations, adjustments, and determination of accurate points and precise distances at a much faster speed. While a manually operated total station requires a second person holding the prism to calculate distances, a robotic total station is fully automated and does not require an operator.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global robotic total stations market to grow at a CAGR of 6.48% during the period 2017-2021.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global robotic total stations market for 2017-2021. The report presents a detailed picture of the market by way of study, synthesis, and summation of data from multiple sources.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Robotic Total Stations Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global robotic total stations market: Carlson Software, GENEQ, Leica Geosystems, Topcon, and Trimble.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Beijing Bofei Instrument, Hilti, and geo-FENNEL.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Multi-track prism technology. Robotic total stations have advantages over traditional total stations in terms of ease of work and seamless data collection with high precision. The latest developments in the field of automation have resulted in the manufacturing of robotic total stations equipped with multi-track prism technology. Traditional total stations deployed for site measurement and evaluation purposes were manually adjusted by the operator in collaboration with the prism.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Reduced operational and labor cost. Construction or surveying activities involve field workers that are engaged in multiple operations. For instance, construction contractors appoint a mechanical, electrical, plumbing (MEP) team that is a combination of mechanical, electrical, and plumbing workers. This team is responsible for carrying out multiple operations that involve the use of manually operated equipment. Also, the use of traditional equipment and total stations minimizes the speed and precision of applications. In addition, there are more number of field workers engaged in surveying applications, resulting in increased cost.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is High implementation cost. Robotic total stations are cost-intensive due to the combination of advanced components and technology used in their development. The stations are equipped with tracking and automation capabilities, which makes them more advanced and adds on to extra cost. They are preferred in a large number of applications such as surveying, construction, and excavation. Due to the development in automation, robotic total stations offer high precision and extended quality of work.
