|Research programs at the laboratory include:
- Real-time 3D modeling,
- Identification, localization, and tracking technologies,
- Computer-aided critical operations planning research, and
- Automation feasibility analyses.
The Construction Automation Laboratory is located at the J.J. Pickle Research Campus, 12 miles north of the main campus. It is comprised of well over 3000 square feet of indoor lab space, indoor test facilities, and several acres of outdoor test fields. Computers in the lab are used for
information technology development, automated systems control, internal and external sensor data analysis, and documentation. A wide variety of software is installed.
The Construction Automation Laboratory has full access to well equipped machinery and electronics shops within the University. The shops are available to fabricate, test, and modify mechanical and electronic parts.
