INTEGRATION OF POSITIONING AND COMPUTER-AIDED DRAFTING AND DESIGN TECHNOLOGIES FOR TRANSPORTATION FACILITIES

The advent of improved computers has brought about unique potential for improved control of construction projects. One area of control is in the integration of computer-aided drafting and design (CADD) and positioning of data to provide real-time data to equipment and personnel on the site. The components required for real-time data about positions within a site include CADD and animation software as well as specialized hardware. Some current research has taken place at Virginia Polytechnic Institute in the area of the interface between CADD and positioning. Three areas of current research in the area of positioning are of interest. Potential applications and benefits of the interface between CADD and positioning range from surveying to controlling autonomous vehicles.
