Automation and Robotics for Road Construction and Maintenance

Miroslaw Skibniewski, Chris Hendrickson
1990 Journal of transportation engineering  
The distinction between numerically controlled (NC) machines and autonomous equipment is discussed based on task requirements and machine capabilities.  ...  The paper concludes that road construction and maintenance tasks have a significant potential for gradual automation due to the repetitiveness and relatively moderate sensory requirements of many tasks  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS We would like to thank several colleagues for helpful comments. Financial support in the preparation of this paper from the National Science Foundation is also gratefully acknowledged.  ...

The Future Internet of Things and Security of its Control Systems [article]

Misty Blowers, Jose Iribarne, Edward Colbert, Alexander Kott
2016 arXiv   pre-print
Cyber security of IoT may also benefit from new design methods for mixed-trusted systems; and from big data analytics -- predictive and autonomous.  ...  One can argue that in the relatively near future, the IoT construct will subsume industrial plants, infrastructures, housing and other systems that today are controlled by ICS and SCADA systems.  ...  For example, infrared and motion sensors could communicate to other systems that there has been no human activity in the home or office, and thus appliances such as water coolers, HVAC systems, and water  ...
