This paper describes results from a study evaluating stringless paving using a combination of global positioning and laser technologies. A concrete paver manufacturer and a machine guidance solution provider developed this technology and successfully implemented it on construction earthmoving and grading projects. Concrete paving is a new area for considering this technology. A concrete paving contractor in Iowa agreed to test the stringless paving technology on two challenging concrete paving… 

Using Scanning Lasers for Real-Time Pavement Thickness Measurement

This paper examines a system that could determine the thickness of the pavement in real time by laser scanning the surface of the subgrade prior to paving, and then scanning the surface after paving.

Using Scanning Lasers to Determine the Thickness of Concrete Pavement

Due to limited budgets and reduced inspection staff, state departments of transportation are in need of innovative approaches for providing more efficient quality assurance on concrete paving

Autonomous Robot for Pavement Construction in Challenging Environments

Conventional concrete paving construction machinery has insufficient automation in design, standardized process, and controls for paving construction in hazardous environments on earth as well as

A Novel Approach for Road Construction using an Automated Paving Robot

It is envisioned that with the aid of an autonomous paving robot, pavement construction can be conducted safer, faster, and with higher levels of productivity.

Synthesis of Pavement Issues Related to High-Speed Corridors

The objective of this research project was to produce a synthesis of available information to support specific areas related to pavements for the safe, economical development of the Trans Texas

Optimizing Concrete Mixtures with Minimum Cement Content for Performance and Sustainability

The main purpose of this research is to investigate the minimum cement content required with an appropriate water-to-cement ratio (w/c) to meet given workability, strength, and durability


ABSTRACT To improve productivity in conventional concrete construction, autonomous robots that perform specific tasks are being developed. Single-task robots are capable of enhancing specific

Data Fusion for Materials Location Estimation in Construction

Effective automated tracking and locating of the thousands of materials on construction sites improves material distribution and project performance and thus has a significant positive impact on



Stringline Effects on Concrete Pavement Construction

Modern concrete pavement construction typically uses slipform paving equipment, especially on major highways and airfields. This equipment commonly is guided by its sensing of a stringline set in
