Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Microcomputer Applications Within the Urban Transportation Environment


Transportation projects have long involved some of the most equipment-intensive field construction operations. They are already benefitting from automation in concrete batch plants, slip-form pavers, laser-guided excavators and graders, and tunnel boring machines. The transportation construction sector has a good record for innovation, and the means to continue. This paper provides an overview of some of the potential applications that can be improved or introduced as a result.
