A robotic total station (RTS) refers to an electronic instrument that allows remote operation. It is extensively used to measure vertical and horizontal angles, surveying, excavating, and constructing dams and plant chimneys. It is utilized to perform calculations and inspection as it consists of a combination of an electronic distance meter and electronic theodolite. RTS is an integrated system that consists of a microprocessor, integrated camera, and electronic data collector. It provides more accurate measurements, enhanced speed, quality assurance, reduced errors, and cost-effectiveness. RTS includes distance measurement, data processing, coordinate measurement, and angle measurement. It finds extensive application across various industries, such as utilities, mining, and construction. Robotic Total Stations (RTS)
The global robotic total stations (RTS) market reached a value of US$ 736.3 Million in 2021.
