Leica Geosystems Releases Leica fieldPro v2.1

The relaunched Version 2.1 of Leica fieldPro features several improvements of well-known functionalities and a new interface between CADWorx fieldPipe and Leica CloudWorx for AutoCAD. CADWorx fieldPipe for Leica fieldPro application interfaces with Leica Total Stations to as-built plant and piping components to create full scale specification-driven 3D models in real-time, on-site, and without any post-processing back in the office - saving valuable time and money. Now in fieldPro v2.1, the CADWorx fieldPipe for Leica fieldPro option as well as the fieldPipe standalone option have been enhanced with multiple additions, such as Pipe Orthogonization. Additionally the CADWorx fieldPipe for Leica... (read more)

pcX-Pro Machine Control System

Prolec, UK, have launched a new machine guidance system, pcX-Pro, which consists of a improved and revamped pcX software product and replacing pcX-3D product. pcX-Pro incorporates a similar user interface to the Digmaster-Pro system, with simplified commands and a touch screen interface but maintains the flexibility. The solution also accepts a wider variety of terrain map formats which are independent of the job size using Prolec's proprietary Pro-Job2 software. Due to pcX-Pro's graphic handling capabilities almost any shape can be created, which will be displayed real time allowing operators the freedom to configure the system according to their job's particular...

GPS-based Tracking System for Haul Trucks

The recently released Carlson TruckPro 2.0 is a GPS-based assignment and tracking system for haul trucks. It helps optimise operations by enabling dispatch operators to know haul truck locations and material types during transit, even in low-visibility conditions. TruckPro assists the mine with material management, a critical part of its production workflow, and is designed to aid the shift foreman or engineer in calculating material types and tonnages hauled for the shift. The heavy equipment operator can get instant feedback on their performance statistics, giving them goals in which to better perform. Carlson TruckPro 2.0 has been completely rebuilt on... (read more)

Thales ProMark3 Released

Thales (CA, USA) has introduced ProMark3. With ProMark3 surveyors can reduce their field data collection time by up to 33% over competitive offerings. ProMark3 also offers both centimetre accuracy in post-processing and GIS capabilities in one rugged package. Using the proprietary Prism technology from Thales, ProMark3 reduces occupation time and gets surveyors onto the next job faster than ever. Prism technology also allows reliable static, stop & go, and kinematic GPS survey under poor satellite tracking conditions. ProMark3 provides sub-metre, real-time accuracy using WAAS or EGNOS, centimetre-level accuracy in post-processing, and keeps working even in urban canyons and dense foliage... (read more)
