PaveTech: A Smart Roads Conference comes to Vancouver!
By Andrew Snook
Roadbuilding professionals descended on Vancouver on March 5 to learn about some of the latest technologies available for optimizing their operations at Rock to Road’s inaugural PaveTech: A Smart Roads Conference.
PaveTech is a one-day educational forum focused on the optimization of paving and related roadbuilding practices and procedures.
Attendees enjoyed case studies and presentations on a variety of industry-related topics, including fibre reinforced asphalt pavement; fundamentals of intelligent compaction; a tool for battling silica dust; how infrared heaters are changing how paving contractors create new, and maintain old, pavements; modernizing aggregate dispatch through solutions built for subcontracted haulers; an update on Canadian drone regulations, compliance management and training; and technology and training advancements to assist with a less experienced workforce; as well as exhibitors showcasing their latest technologies and services.
The next PaveTech: A Smart Roads Conference will take place in Calgary in 2020.
Thanks again to all of our sponsors!
