New technology to reduce boreholes

New technology to reduce potholes

Researchers have developed a new machine-learning technique that applies the Goldilocks principle to road compaction quality. Researchers have developed new “intelligent compaction” technology, which integrates into a road roller and can assess in real-time the quality of road base compaction. Improved road construction can reduce potholes and maintenance costs, and lead to safer, more resilient roads. Months of heavy rain and floods (see our story about subsurface importance on roads…
