Topcon Positioning Group serves AEC professionals with its precision positioning technologies and workflow solutions for the global construction, surveying, civil engineering, mapping and GIS, asset management, agriculture, and mobile control markets.
Topcon and Autodesk have partnered to deliver joint solutions for the Global AEC industry that help to accelerate the delivery of commercial construction projects while minimizing overall contractor risks. By leveraging the strengths of both organizations and building upon recent product connections like the purpose built Topcon LN-100 Mobile Navigator and the Autodesk BIM 360 Layout iPad app, the partnership seeks to continually innovate the use of cloud and mobile technologies to extend the aspects of building information modeling further into the field--at the point of work.
Key benefits for AEC professionals
Productivity The partnership between Topcon and Autodesk is designed to allow building and civil infrastructure construction customers to form a tighter, more seamless connection between the office and the field, increasing on-site worker productivity as well as improving overall quality, and field safety.
Positioning Versatility When combined with Autodesk’s suite of cloud service solutions, Topcon is able to offer a seamless workflow and information transfer from office to field using traditional total stations, precision GPS receivers, or new specialty solutions such as the LN-100.
Performance and Value The LN-100 3D BIM layout tool is a turnkey, layout solution that is easy to use and less than one-half of the cost of using more complex robotic optical instruments currently available to contractors today. The LN-100 instrument was specifically designed in collaboration with Autodesk to integrate with Autodesk cloud services, providing model-based layout as a means to more easily connect the office with field-level execution.
Innovative Precision Topcon is a leading global manufacturer of high-precision measurement and control systems for the most demanding AEC applications. Our 85-year history includes many “world’s first” innovations including the first coaxial total station, fully integrated GNSS system, and high-speed earthmoving automation.
