The Federal Highway Administration’s last Intelligent Compaction (IC) Equipment Demonstration of 2015 took place at the Alabama Department of Transportation’s headquarters September 23 and featured presentations from four equipment manufacturers and one software provider.

FHWA has held approximately 30 such events across the country over the past two years to encourage and accelerate IC implementation.

Representatives from Sakai America, Atlas Copco, Hamm, Volvo CE and Topcon described the core features and advantages of their respective IC systems in a seminar setting to nearly three dozen attendees, followed by hands-on demonstrations on the ALDOT grounds.
