One of the more recent areas where automation has been used to accomplish improved results over those obtained by manual operation is in the bituminous paving industry. The application of automatic grade and slope control systems to the modern floated screed asphalt paver dramatically evidences the higher level of paving efficiencies and better riding roads normally expected when electronics augment the human operator. The control systems are rugged, reliable, easily operated, and low cost in relation to economics of operation.
