Topcon Technology Roadshow Hits Pleasanton, CA

The Technology Roadshow continued its steady roll around North America building on Topcon’s Intersection of Infrastructure and Technology message. Along the 28-city tour, the traveling trailer stopped for several days in beautiful Pleasanton, California, just down the road from Topcon Positioning Systems’ headquarters in Livermore. 

From the start, this four-day event, hosted by RDO Integrated Controls, Engineering Supply, Papé Machinery and 5D Solutions, provided attendees with a little extra insight into the potential of technology-enabled construction in infrastructure.

Towards Navigation Safety for Autonomous Cars

Figures 1 – 6, Table 1

There are many good reasons for getting excited about highly automated vehicles, or HAVs, which is the acronym used by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). HAVs can make driving more fuel- and time-efficient. They can significantly reduce traffic congestion and emissions by driving a precise speed, minimizing lane changes, and maintaining an exact distance to neighboring cars. They can also increase accessibility and mobility for disabled and elderly persons.

Honey Shares his Lifetime of Navigation with Boats, Cars and Sports During Keynote Speech

As a child Stan Honey taught himself navigation and he admits he was “always good at math” and “just found navigation interesting.”

When he shared his many tales with the crowd in the Oregon Ballroom Tuesday night at the ION GNSS+ during the Plenary Session, the Yale- and Stanford-trained engineer entertained the audience with a wealth of information on early navigation systems, current navigation technologies, and how he and his colleagues developed many of the systems used to enhance the way millions of fans watch sports on television.
