Trimble and HP explore robotics for autonomous interior building layouts

Las Vegas, November 7 July 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) and HP are collaborating to integrate Trimble’s newest robotic total station with HP’s new SitePrint robotic layout solution. The solution focuses on changing the layout process of interior architectural projects.

The announcement was made at the Trimble Dimensions+ Conference, where HP and Trimble are demonstrating the technology.

The construction industry faces various challenges, including a shortage of skilled workers and productivity. HP and Trimble can address these challenges by integrating HP SitePrint and the recently introduced Trimble® Ri total station. Integrated solutions can provide autonomous layout workflows, increasing work efficiency and productivity, while delivering layouts faster than traditional methods. By enhancing the work of contractors, SitePrint can avoid obstacles, print lines and complex objects with precision and consistent repeatability. In addition, the text print function brings additional data from the digital model to the construction site to prevent errors.

Using optical technology, the precise positioning and navigation of the HP SitePrint robot is powered by a Trimble Ri total station. Equipped with automatic level detection, self-calibration, and Trimble VISION™ technology for advanced tracking, the Trimble Ri enables HP SitePrint robots to achieve autonomous, high-accuracy indoor layout work.

“The integration of Trimble Ri and HP SitePrint can transform the layout process of complex construction sites with precise precision in a fraction of the time,” said Aviad Almagor, Vice President of Tempo Technology Innovation. “This is an opportunity for layout contractors to improve accuracy and productivity and handle more projects with the same size team.”

“Technology adoption and increased digitization can help construction companies bridge this productivity gap,” said Daniel Martínez, vice president and general manager of large-format printing at HP. “For the past 30 years, HP has been delivering printing solutions to architects and engineers. It has played a key role in connecting the digital and physical worlds. With the integration between HP SitePrint and Trimble Ri, we are making it easier than ever for layout professionals to come up with ideas for live on-site, while also advancing the digitization of the entire construction industry.”
