Abstract: Technologically, computer integration can be built around four component systems; (a) a computer system to maintain unified data and control real-time operations, (b) a metrology system for precisely locating vehicles and other things at a site, (c) a data communication system for passing information between the computer-controller and dispersed field activities, and (d) machine controllers on equipment to translate information into physical action. All these things are available in existing technology. This paper outlines how such integrated construction automation works.
