    The Transformation of Work through Automation and Autonomy

    Automation and autonomy are revolutionizing various industries such as construction, agriculture, automotive, rail, and ports. The advancement of positioning, communication, and software technologies has become the driving force behind this transformative shift, allowing for faster, safer, cheaper, and more environmentally friendly job completion.

    In an upcoming webinar, Trimble, a leading technology company, will discuss the current state of automation and autonomy and its efforts to enable the development of these solutions. Trimble’s Product Manager for GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite Systems) for OEMs, Gordon Hain, will highlight the company’s guiding principles in autonomy, leveraging their technical expertise in robust positioning and orientation in all operating environments.

    Hain will explore various options provided by Trimble, ranging from entry-level GNSS receivers to high-precision INS (Inertial Navigation Systems) for accurate positioning and orientation. He will also discuss real-time and ground-truthing for development, prototyping, and testing; HD mapping and path planning to optimize workflows; and sensor fusion for localization and perception in GNSS-denied environments.

    During the webinar, experts from the agriculture and construction industries will share real-world use cases to showcase the integration of sensors in off-road environments, bringing automation and autonomy to life. Dynapac’s Application Specialist, Fredrik Ã…kesson, will provide insights into autonomous technology implementation for the compaction business unit. Saga Robotics’ Senior Robotics Engineer, Michael Hutchinson, will share his expertise in developing autonomy software for the Thorvald platform.

    The webinar, hosted by Trimble, is scheduled for September 20 at 1 p.m. Eastern Time. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about the transformative power of automation and autonomy in various industries.
