Leica Geosystems, part of Hexagon, shares an event where LOC8, an asset-tracking platform, was instrumental in the recent recovery of a stolen Leica TS16 total station in Manchester. A site engineer with PLP Construction reported to Greater Manchester Police his hired total station from M&P Survey Equipment Ltd. had been stolen from his vehicle. The total station was equipped with the LOC8 technology and was, therefore, tracked continuously throughout the incident. Once notified, the hire desk was able to locate the total station at a residential address in Lancashire. The local authorities were on scene within 10 minutes to retrieve the instrument, returning it safely to the engineer. www.leica-geosystems.com
