Intelligent Compaction (IC) is an equipment-based technology for better quality control that results in longer pavement lives. IC machines are vibratory rollers that include accelerometers mounted on the axle of drums, a global positioning system, infra-red temperature sensors (for asphalt), and on-board computers that can display color-coded maps in real-time to track roller passes, asphalt surface temperatures, and stiffness of compacted materials.

We provide several ways for you to learn more about IC: view IC Fundamentals, browse our collection of IC Documents and Resources, sign up for an IC Workshop, or visit our News page.
