Below is the uncorrected machine-read text of this chapter, intended to provide our own search engines and external engines with highly rich, chapter-representative searchable text of each book. Because it is UNCORRECTED material, please consider the following text as a useful but insufficient proxy for the authoritative book pages.

50 Case Example Interview Questions 1. Name of the project 2. Dates of data collection (It does not have to be exact. For instance, every 2 weeks for 3 months in 2019, one time in March 2020, etc.) 3. Project Location 4. What construction application was the UAS-based data collection for? Please provide as many details as possible. For instance, stockpile volume measurement for progress tracking, general project controls, documentation, etc. 5. Provide details of data collection. Answer the following but feel free to provide any other insights/interesting observations you would like to share. a. What drone and visual sensors were used? b. Workflow for data collection (i.e., traditionally surveyed GCPs vs. GNSS-based GCPs like AeroPoints, how many GCPs, path planning app, flight pattern, any protocols to follow, etc.) 6. Did you/project benefit from UAS as anticipated? What went well and what did not go well? 7. What are lessons learned you would like to share? 8. Did you have any concerns during data collection? 9. How did you maintain the collected data (if you did)? 10. Please share any images and/or visuals aids you would like us to include in the synthesis report. A P P E N D I X C

In the last decade, new technologies have transformed all stages of highway construction as more industry stakeholders have begun incorporating new technologies into their daily construction activities.

The TRB National Cooperative Highway Research Program's NCHRP Synthesis 578: Use of Unmanned Aerial Systems for Highway Construction documents the use of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) by state departments of transportation (DOTs) during highway construction, identifies potential benefits and obstacles DOTs face when implementing UAS in highway construction projects, and identifies information gaps to be filled that could enable state DOTs to enhance the benefits of UAS for construction-related operations.
