TRB Webinar: Emerging Technologies for Construction Delivery
The webinar features research from the National Cooperative Highway Research Program’s Synthesis 534: Emerging Technologies for Construction Delivery.
The webinar will provide an overview of the current practices state departments of transportation use for construction delivery. It will focus on global positioning systems for layout, machine guidance, and quantity tracking; handheld computers for construction records; automated temperature tracking for concrete maturity monitoring; four-dimensional computer-aided drafting modeling for constructability analysis and improved communications; and web-based video cameras for remote project monitoring. Presenters will also discuss other technologies used for construction delivery, including virtual reality, radio frequency identification, and ground penetrating radar.
