Leica Geosystems, part of Hexagon, received the Wichmann Innovations Award for its Leica AP20 AutoPole at this year’s Intergeo show in Essen, Germany. The award honours new technology for the geospatial sector that stands out through innovation, user-friendliness and practicality.

An innovative solution for automated total stations, the AutoPole features tilt compensation, automatic pole height readings and unique target identification. It was developed to address some of the core pain points that operators have in total station workflow, making it possible to measure with a tilted pole, to adjust height readings in the software automatically, and to prevent the station from locking onto unwanted targets.

“The Leica AP20 AutoPole boosts efficiency by removing the last analogue steps in robotic total station workflows. We were pleased when customers told us they were able to double their productivity on some projects,” stated Hans-Martin Zogg, business director TPS at Leica Geosystems.
