Leica's Viva TS15 provides advanced imaging functionality combined with dynamic tracking capabilities for one-person surveying. 



Leica Geosystems announces its new robotic Imaging Total Station, the Leica Viva TS15. This total station provides advanced imaging functionality combined with dynamic tracking capabilities for one-person surveying. Leica Viva TS15 features the easy-to-use Leica SmartWorx Viva onboard software.

The Leica Viva TS15 adds a high-resolution camera to further enhance total station productivity. Traditional robotic operation is significantly improved with imaging features through Image Assisted Surveying and Documentation.

Image Assisted Surveying and Documentation Thanks to live streaming of the total station view on the robotic controller, remote points can be easily measured with the new tap, turn & measure functionality without returning to the total station. With the new Image Capture functionality users can take high-resolution images of the surveying scene or even capture any screen shown on the display at the push of a button. The exact photo documentation of site conditions helps to further optimize productivity and to minimize paper field-notes and avoid costly re-visits.

Any new or captured image can be enhanced through sketching with any color, line style and width to uniquely transfer valuable information. Users will benefit from never again loosing their field-notes or struggling with drawing on wet paper.

After capturing and sketching, the annotated images can be linked to any object of interest (point, line, area) or simply stored with a time stamp. Users can now exactly assign their images and archive them together with measurement data.

The Leica TS15 now includes new grid scanning functionality. It is now easily possible to graphically define an area to be scanned on the total station view shown on the display. The total station will then rapidly scan the object to measure a true grid with survey accuracy.

The Leica Viva TS15 incorporates Leica SmartWorx Viva onboard software to fully harmonize Leica Viva CS10 and CS15 controllers and the Viva TS15 total station on one easy-to-use productive software platform. Leica SmartWorx Viva provides a wide range of applications.

The Leica Viva TS15 models offer angle measurements of 1”, 2”, 3”, and 5” with quadruple axis compensation. In prism mode a distance of 3’500m is achieved with an accuracy of 1mm+1.5ppm on a single prism in standard measuring mode. On all surfaces users can measure up to 1’000 m and more with an accuracy of 2mm + 2ppm.  

Users can add full GNSS functionality to the Leica Viva TS15 total station to further improve productivity. The TS15 can be used as a Leica SmartStation for TPS setup without the need of control points, traverses, and resections, or as a Leica SmartPole to save time with setup ‘On-the-fly’ and measure parallel with TPS and GNSS for double productivity.
