Abstract

This document summarizes the discussion and findings of a workshop on intelligent technologies for earthwork construction held in West Des Moines, Iowa, on April 14–16, 2009. This meeting follows a similar workshop conducted in 2008. The objective of the meeting was to provide a focused discussion on identifying research and implementation needs/strategies to advance intelligent compaction and automated machine guidance technologies. Technical presentations, interactive working breakout sessions, and a panel discussion comprised the workshop. About 100 attendees representing state departments of transportation, Federal Highway Administration, contractors, equipment manufacturers, and researchers participated in the workshop.
