Cansel, a software, hardware and service provider, has announced an agreement with Denmark-based TinyMobileRobots to distribute the TInySurveyor robot in Canada. The GPS-guided mobile robot assists in surveying, civil engineering, construction and utility industry processes.
Supported by an onboard Trimble GNSS receiver, the TinySurveyor can execute large tasks up to 10x faster than traditional surveying and stakeout methods. The robot can perform pre-marking, stake- out/set-out collection, as-built surveys and more.
“Cansel has always been dedicated to supporting innovation in industries like construction and infrastructure, and we’re proud to bring the TinySurveyor to the Canadian market,” said Martin Trudelle, president of Cansel. “In documented use cases, the robot completed five weeks of work in just five days. We’re excited to offer that level of efficiency to our customers. For businesses that struggle with razor-thin profit margins, this level of time savings mean they’ll realize ROI – and greater profits – quickly.”
A tablet that comes with the robot gives an operator full control of the robot, as well as job parameters. With a pre-installed app, the operator can customize marking settings, apply projection shifts and adjust robot velocities directly from the tablet. Existing CSV and DXF files can be sent directly from the tablet to the TinySurveyor, allowing operators to start working within minutes, Cansel said.
Cansel said it will offer the TinySurveyor bundled with the accompanying tablet and onboard Trimble GNSS receiver to customers. More details on the robot are available here.
