Emerging Technologies for Construction Delivery

This synthesis documents the use of selected advanced technologies used for transportation highway construction projects of state departments of transportation. This synthesis identifies five advanced technology areas used on state department of transportation (DOT) highway construction projects, documents their level of maturity, investigates the implementation barriers and success factors, and discusses the lessons learned as noted by state DOTs in their effort to study, test, and implement a new construction technology.The technology areas are (1) visualization and modeling, (2) interconnected technologies, (3) safety technologies, (4) instrumentation and sensors, and (5) unmanned aircraft systems. Information used in this study was gathered through a literature review, a survey of state departments of transportation, and follow-up interviews with selected agencies for case examples.
