Asphalt Paving Technologies Moving Operations into the Future
Wednesday, March 15 | 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM | Location: West Hall 213-215
Trimble Presenter: Kevin Garcia, General Manager - Civil Specialty Solutions at Trimble
Today's paving sites look very different than they did just a few short years ago. First was the introduction of 2D/3D grade control, then intelligent compaction. Now we have thermal profiling, automatic screed width control and steering. Couple all that with the data that can be collected while performing the operation and things can be overwhelming. In this session, we will navigate through technologies that are benefiting the paving industry today and what is likely to come in the near future. We'll also cover what you'll need to know to be prepared for these modern job sites and future forward visions for the industry.
Alleviating Worker Shortage With Task Automation

Is a lack of workers limiting your ability to take on new projects or complete current jobs on time? Task automation can make everything from machine operation to estimating faster and easier with fewer people—and free up existing workers for more interesting and less physically demanding tasks. In this session, attendees will hear directly from contractors who are using technology to help offset the challenges of the labor shortage by automating everyday tasks. Panelists will discuss which tasks are easiest to automate, how to get started, and where they are seeing the greatest benefit from task automation.
