Topcon Positioning Group announced the next generation of automated concrete paving — the ZPS system — with the new Z-Robot and Z-Stack sensor. Using enhanced Topcon Millimeter GPS technology, the ZPS system is designed to bring unmatched accuracy to concrete paving with a fraction of the hardware required for traditional LPS (local positioning system). The Z-Robot is an advanced robotic total station with integrated Z-beam laser technology. It is designed to provide a hybrid function of high precision, optically based vertical accuracy control and the convenience of Z-beam laser positioning to maintain that accuracy across the paver. On-board the paver, the ZPS system uses the Topcon Z-Stack modular-designed system that seamlessly integrates GPS, optical targeting, and Z-beam reception into one unit by interlocking the required sensing technologies in one rugged “stack.”
