Collapse Expand


Automated machine guidance (AMG) paving has become a game changer in terms of construction quality, efficiency, and, perhaps most importantly, safety. In a round-table discussion, contractors will talk about how they maximize their investments in AMG and Rover hardware and 3D models. Construction Automation involves a large investment in hardware and training, as well as a steep learning curve, as AMG systems are added to new types of equipment. What is the typical project type to achieve a meaningful return? How can you create models that are appropriate for multiple operations? How can you educate owners and designers so that they create and share the data that you need? How can you sell management on the need for investing in AMG? What challenges have you faced in your AMG journey and how did you overcome them? If you're a contractor or owner who is experienced with or new to AMG, join the conversation and optimize your workflow.
