Laser Layout Device

Get square!

Tuesday, June 20, 2017

Associate professor Darren Olsen has developed and patented a device to assist in accurate rectilinear layout, which could potentially provide greater quality control and minimize mistakes in a variety of construction processes. The context for his research was underground plumbing rough-in prior to pouring the concrete slab, which is a notorious source of layout problems, often found only after the concrete has cured. Professor Olsen collaborated with colleagues from Auburn’s Department of Electrical Engineering on the effort.
