IC Workshop at OAPA, Norman, OK, Feb. 28th

An IC workshop will be offered at the OAPA’s 2017 Asphalt Conference, Norman, OK, USA. Dr. George K. Chang, Director of Research, Transtec Group, USA, president of IICTG will conduct the workshop.

The workshop will be full day on Feb. 28 under Track 1- Construction – Veta. All attendees need to register for the conference.

The workshop attendees are strongly encouraged to bring their laptop computers for hands-on exercises using the Veta software, The workshop will include in-depth learning about intelligent compaction and paver-mounted infrared thermal profiles.

The workshop attendees need to download the Veta software (Workshop Version) and pre-install it on their laptops. The followings are the system requirements and installation instructions.

System Requirements

Veta 4.x is supported on 64-bit versions of Windows 7 SP1 or later. Microsoft .NET 4.5.2 is required. If you do not have the required version of .NET installed, the Veta installation will download and install it.

Veta will run with 4 GB of RAM, but we recommend 8 GB. If you expect to work with very large projects, the more RAM the better.

Installation Guide

You must have sufficient privileges to install applications on your computer. If you receive an error message during the installation, ask your administrator to install the software for you. If your administrator is also unable to install the software, then please contact us.

About IICTG

The International Intelligent Construction Technologies Group (IICTG) is a source for knowledge and information on intelligent construction technologies for public agencies, contractors, consultants, academia, and other relevant industries.

IICTG provides a forum for the dissemination of knowledge concerning the collection, analysis, and application of information relating to intelligent construction technologies (ICT).

ICT consists of real time quality monitoring and process control during construction of foundation and pavements for highways, airports, railroads, dams, cities, and ports. ICT involves construction equipment technologies such as pavers, rollers, and other devices.

ICT also makes use state-of-the-art technologies such as Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS), automated testing/monitoring (e.g., Intelligent Compaction), 3D designs/modeling, automated machine guidance (AMG), Cloud computing, Civil Integrated Management (CIM) and Building Information Modeling (BIM), etc. The goals of ICT are to improve quality control and acceptance of constructions as well as reducing life-cycle cost of the above mentioned assets.
