Streamlined tunnelling workflows

July 3rd, 2018, Published in Articles: PositionIT

Trimble has launched a suite of solutions that enhances productivity and efficiency for surveyors and professionals working on underground tunnelling projects. The solutions include new hardware and software for capturing accurate data in tunnels where dirt, dust, water and machinery provide a challenging work environment. The new line of products reduces the time to generate project deliverables by enabling survey and tunnelling engineers to compare tunnel designs with field captured data. Remote operation of instruments and scanners allow surveyors to stand in safe locations and capture data efficiently in the often inaccessible, confined spaces of tunnels. Trimble Business Center’s Tunneling module allows surveyors to key-in tunnel alignment and design elements and transfer tunnel designs to the field for stakeout. The Class 3R laser pointer on the Trimble S9 HP and the Trimble Access Tunneling Application enable surveyors to define drilling locations and enables progress tracking. Data and designs are shared between the field and office for analysis and reporting in the field within Trimble Access, or a more detailed comparison to design files within the Tunneling module.
