Topcon Showcases ‘The Intersection of Infrastructure and Technology’ Solutions at INTERGEO 2017 Print E-mail
Written by Topcon Positioning Group   
Monday, 02 October 2017

Livermore, Calif., U.S./ Capelle A/d Ijssel, the Netherlands – October 2, 2017 – Topcon Positioning Group featured the concept of “The Intersection of Infrastructure and Technology” at this year’s INTERGEO exhibition — exploring the current and future demands on the infrastructure sector and how Topcon advanced technology can increase productivity.
“Across the globe, infrastructure development and management of aging infrastructure assets is placing a huge demand on construction professionals,” said Ian Stilgoe, vice president GeoPositioning Europe for Topcon Positioning Group. At the event, Topcon focused on sharing products and solutions designed to enable the efficiencies required to meet the huge pressure in this sector.
“With increasing population density compounded by urban growth and modernization in developing regions, the need for new infrastructure is growing exponentially,” Stilgoe said. “A gap in the available budgets to pay for the required infrastructure and the available resources to design and construct can be addressed by increases in productivity and reduction of waste in global construction practices. Integrating smart technology into construction is the only feasible way to meet this need.”
Infrastructure was a topic that was explored in depth as part of a joint presentation between Bentley and Topcon in the Smart Cities Solution forum. Topcon also partnered with Solius at the event to showcase innovative technology using a virtual reality dome.
Other talks and demonstrations from the Topcon team explored UAV inspection and monitoring, mass data collection, and BIM collaborative solutions for buildings, infrastructure and smart city models.
The Topcon booth showcased the latest technology including the Elite Survey Suite, Topcon Delta Solution deformation monitoring systems, data collection software advances for the SmoothRide™ resurfacing workflow solution, and a new web-based service for integration with the MAGNET® Collage desktop mass data processing software. Experts from the team demonstrated how adapting to new ways of working and taking an integrated approach to hardware and software can deliver increased efficiency on projects, while improving the way data is collected, managed and shared.
