Investment in Innovation at Core of Business​

Rob Painter, President & CEO, Trimble

Technology is a significant contributor to the digital transformation that is changing our society. In the geospatial industry, we have seen several major technological advances over the last few decades. The first advancement has been sensor focused, where data collection, either in an airborne or terrestrial application (LiDAR, GPS, etc.), has increased productivity and quality exponentially. The second shift has involved sensor fusion, where positioning and data collection capabilities (GNSS, scanning and imaging total stations, terrestrial LiDAR, etc.) have been combined to create sensors that enable accurate and timely data collection and positioning in environments that were once inaccessible to single-sensor systems. The third shift has been industry-specific solutions. We believe the next phase will be integrating along an industry continuum and providing solutions to customer problems through analytics.
