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., IC), 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.
