Leica Geosystems Preps for ‘Big’ Product Launch at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2014

New machine control innovations will take center stage in Las Vegas, supported by a solid lineup of sensors and software for construction site measurement and positioning.

Norcross, Ga., February 17, 2014—Contractors looking for the best way to save money, increase jobsite productivity, reduce wear and tear on their machines, and accelerate project completion times are eagerly awaiting the announcement by Leica Geosystems at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2014. The “big reveal” is set to take place in Las Vegas at booth #N-12665.

In addition to getting the first glimpse of the latest machine control technology, attendees at the comprehensive building and construction exhibition will also get hands-on demonstrations of other state-of-the-art construction site measurement and positioning solutions, including:
• iCONtrol—a comprehensive portfolio of powerful machine control solutions that communicate seamlessly between iCONstruct sensors onsite and software in the office.
• iCONstruct—tailor-made hardware and customized solutions for positioning and measuring tasks onsite.
• iCONnect—solutions for easy data transfer from office to site and machine, as well as remote support for operators on the machine and basic fleet management functionality.
