  1. TIG:Driving Innovation for Transportation Keith Platte, P.E.Program ManagerAAASHTO

  2. What does TIG do? Promotes Focus Technologies that are: • market-ready • high pay-off

  3. How does TIG work? • Two Tier System • Executive Committee (top DOT executives) • Lead State Teams

  4. How does TIG work? • Executive Committee (top DOT executives) • Solicit and Select the Technologies (Annually - 3-4 Focus Technologies, 2-3 Additional Selected Technologies) • Program Oversight and Management

  5. How does TIG work? • Lead State Teams • Formed for every Focus Technologies • 4-7 State DOT Subject Matter Experts • 1-2 FHWA • 1-2 Industry

  6. How does TIG work? • Types of Technologies • Focus Technology • Lead State Team is Formed • Dedicated budget for marketing/implementation • Additional Selected Technologies (AST) • No Team assembled • Produces a White Paper

  7. What are the current Focus Technologies? • Self-Propelled Modular Transporters (SPMT) • Construction Analysis Software Tools (CAST) • Automated Machine Guidance (AMG) • Precast Concrete Paving Slabs (PCPS)

  8. What are the current Focus Technologies? (cont’d) • Maintenance Decision Support Systems (MDSS) • Cable Median Barriers (CMB) • Weigh in Motion (WIM)

  9. Additionally Selected Technologies (AST):? • Slope Stabilization Using Recycled Plastic Reinforcement • Low Profile Barrier Systems • Embedded Data Collector

  10. What do Lead States Teams do? • Provide hands-on assistance • Identify prospective adopters • Reach out to other key stakeholders

  11. Types of deliverables from Focus Technologies? • Suite of Materials (with a TIG Brand) • Brochure • Presentation (PPT or Video) • Case Histories • Website

  12. Tell us about Self-Propelled Modular Transporters… • Why SPMT? Why now? • Significantly reduce traffic congestion/impact • Open highways to traffic in minutes/hours • Improve quality and constructability • Improve work zone safety • Increase contractor and owner options

  13. What are SPMT’s? • Combination of multi-axle platforms • Operated through state-of-the-art computer control system • Capable of pivoting 360 degrees • Lift, carry, and set very large and heavy loads

  14. How do SPMT’s work? • motorized vehicles that move at walking speed • carry bridge structures from offsite locations • position them precisely into position • return area to traffic within minutes or hours

  15. What bridge operations are SPMTs used for? • New bridge installation • Reconstruction • Move & “recycle” entire structures • Removal of old structures

  16. Sample of SPMT Savings: Mobilization cost offset by savings: • Fewer/shorter maintenance-of-traffic setups • No temporary-detour construction/repair of long-term detours • Less user costs from construction-related delay and congestion • Better performance of prefabricated structure. Contractors reap: lower insurance premiums, more projects, less manpower and equipment rental time

  17. Tell us about Automated Machine Guidance… • Why AMG? Why now? • Links software with construction equipment • Directs the operation of machinery • Provides a high level of precision • Improves speed and accuracy

  18. AMG also means: • Less changes, busts, reengineering and rework • Less labor /time to produce high quality results • Improved worker safety • Agencies/contractors save time and money • Better ride quality for customers

  19. AMG is currently popular for: • Grading operations

  20. How does AMG work? • Three-dimensional computer models to move materials with precision • Info via GPS about how much to move or aggregate level • Machine controls materials while operator drives down roadbed

  21. AMG holds promise for: • Curb placement • Paving • Trenching

  22. Tell us about Construction Analysis Software Tools… Why CAST? Why now? • CAST provides Information on construction options that helps agencies: • “Try before they buy” • Minimize traffic congestion during congestion • Maximize safe mobility • Gather and organize data for IA and TMP, per new FHWA rule

  23. Use CAST for: • Planning • Design • Implementation

  24. CAST options include: • Traffic simulation/analysis • Traffic management • Construction scheduling/cost analysis • Combination of these options

  25. CAST decision factors include: • Analysis context • Tool category • Most appropriate tool within category

  26. Tell us about Precast Concrete Paving Slabs… Why PCPS? Why now? • Proven quality, durability and long-term performance • Accelerate construction scheduling and sequencing • Reduce work zone duration and size limits • Reduce construction delays/congestion • Economically viable

  27. Types and products: • Prestressed/Post-Tensioned Paving Panel • Full-Depth Repair/Joint Replacement • Uretek Precast Panel using High Density Polyurethane • “Super-Slab™” • Kwik Joint Coupling system

  28. More Information on PCPS: Check the PCPS Website: • Frequently asked questions • Sample specifications • Background Information on the various products

  29. So how does TIG pay for all this? • Voluntary Contribution • Bill sent to the CEO/Sectaries office around August/September timeframe • 40 States at $6000 each

  30. What’s the latest? • Announcement of new TIG technologies: Spring AASHTO Meeting • Solicitation for New Technologies in May/June • New Guidebook for Lead State Teams • Call for Lead State participation

  31. How can we get involved? • Be a pooled fund participant (Work with your Research Manager and Chief Engineer) • Serve on a Lead States Team • Submit your agency’s technology

  32. How do I learn more? www.aashtotig.org Or contact: Keith Platte, P.E. Program Manager kplatte@aashto.org 202/624-7830

  33. Thank you! Any questions?
