With its recently introduced Enterprise Solutions featuring Sitelink3D, Topcon Positioning Group gave its 3D-MC customers enhanced site management, data control and system support. Now it announced a new feature for Sitelink3D, the HT-30 haul truck module.

The system features a small, portable GPS-enabled control box that mounts into the truck cab. As the truck is loaded, data about the load is input, such as material type, driver, and quantity. The load is then integrated into Sitelink3D and can be tracked for scheduling, rerouted if needed elsewhere, and recorded once delivery is made.

"Our objective has always been to automate a construction site as much as possible," said Kris Maas, manager of machine control product marketing of Topcon. "We know we can’t, or at least shouldn’t, remotely operate any vehicle. But, we can and should do the next best thing — manage and track the whereabouts and payload of site material. That’s what HT-30 does.

"Whether the material is fill dirt, removal of overburden, select material, base course or even asphalt, HT-30 can be quickly plugged in so management and reporting can be maintained in real-time," Maas said. "By more accurately measuring hauls, the system can pay for itself very quickly."
