On the Road to the Global Symposium with Darcy Bullock, Ph.D.
Speaker(s): Darcy Bullock, Ph.D., Lyles Family Professor of Civil Engineering, Purdue University
Director, Joint Transportation Research Program (JTRP)
Presentation Title: Automated Precision De-Icing Application for State DOTs and Universities
Research: Intelligent Sidewalk De-Icing and Pre-Treatment with Connected Campus Maintenance Vehicles
Date/Time: Tuesday, April 7th, 2020 | 2:00 PM ET
Abstract: This project will develop an automated system for precision application of de-icing chemicals on campus and urban sidewalks. This will reduce environmental impact and infrastructure aging and increase cost savings.
