Digital digging


Leica has unveiled a machine guidance product for excavators called DigSmart 3D V2.0. The software and telematics technology allow the operator to see exactly where and how far to dig, based on a digital plan of the site or on data from a Total Station. It can be used with Leica's TrenchTool to enable faster digging of trenches.
