The Rise of Autonomy: Transforming Industries

Autonomy is rapidly revolutionizing various industries such as construction, agriculture, automotive, rail, and ports. With the advancements in positioning, communication, and software technologies, jobs can now be completed faster, safer, cheaper, and greener. Trimble, a leading company in this field, is playing a significant role in enabling the development of autonomous solutions.

Trimble’s Product Manager for GNSS, Gordon Hain, will be the key speaker in an upcoming webinar that will delve into the current state of automation and autonomy. He will highlight Trimble’s guiding principles of autonomy, emphasizing their technical expertise in robust positioning and orientation across all operating environments. Hain will discuss the range of options provided by Trimble, including accurate positioning and orientation for GNSS receivers, real-time and ground-truthing for development and testing, HD mapping and path planning, and localization and perception enabled by sensor fusion.

The webinar will also feature real-world use cases shared by Dynapac’s Application Specialist, Fredrik Akesson, and SAGA Robotics’ Senior Robotics Engineer, Michael Hutchinson. Akesson will provide insights into sensor integration in off-road environments for automation in the agriculture and construction industries. Hutchinson, on the other hand, will focus on the autonomy software development for the Thorvald platform.

Gordon Hain, a Product Manager in Trimble’s Autonomy division, brings extensive experience in the construction and mining industries, along with a background in Mechatronics. Fredrik Akesson has been involved in technical training and application support at Dynapac for over two decades, specializing in autonomous technology implementation. Michael Hutchinson holds a PhD in Robotics and Automation and is currently leading the development of autonomy software at SAGA Robotics.

This must-attend webinar is scheduled for September 20th at 1 p.m. Eastern time. Register today to gain insights into how autonomy is transforming industries and the role Trimble is playing in driving this change.
