Smart Tracking of Highway Construction Projects

Cyber-physical systems offer integrated sensing, computing and communication capabilities which drive innovation and competition in all industries including construction. Highway construction projects are major projects that, as a result of their sequential activity progress, are usually more vulnerable to schedule overruns. The schedules of highway projects need to be monitored in real-time to ensure timely implementation of project deliverables and efficient management of sequentially used resources. This paper presents a cyber-physical systems-based approach for improving progress monitoring and control of road and highway projects. This is achieved through establishing effective bi-directional interactions between project tracking tools and physical construction components on the worksites. A case study is presented to demonstrate the efficacy of the proposed application in efficient progress monitoring and control of highway projects.
