TRB's National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Web-Only Document 250: Use of Automated Machine Guidance within the Transportation Industry studies automated machine guidance (AMG) implementation barriers and develop strategies for effective implementation of AMG technology in construction operations. AMG links design software with construction equipment to direct the operations of construction machinery with a high level of precision, and improve the speed and accuracy of the construction process. AMG technology may improve the overall quality, safety, and efficiency of transportation project construction.
