This paper presents the total process model of automation for construction and maintenance, with a focus on roads and bridges. This multi-phase model includes: initial measurements, product modeling and design, construction control and machine guidance, quality assurance and control, and lifecycle operations and maintenance. The paper then provides detailed discussion of current applied research results from Finland and California. The paper gives a summary of the key findings of Finland and California, noting areas of commonality and areas for further investigation. Finally, the paper presents plans for further collaborative research between the University of Oulu and the University of California – Davis.
