  title={Stringless Portland Cement Concrete Paving},
  author={J. Cable and E. Jaselskis and R. Walters and Lifeng Li and C. Bauer},
  journal={Journal of Construction Engineering and Management-asce},
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… Expand
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.Expand
Using Scanning Lasers to Determine the Thickness of Concrete Pavement
