Transportation infrastructure. It’s what keeps our economy moving and gets people safely where they need to go. But maintaining safe, reliable infrastructure assets is a complex challenge that requires innovative solutions.
Join transportation industry experts for the monthly Move Your Assets podcast—conversations at the crossroads of technology and transportation—hosted by AgileAssets, the leading provider of enterprise solutions to help you manage all your infrastructure assets, from roads and bridges to vehicles, equipment, and more.
Every episode, you’ll discover best practices, industry trends, and agency success stories that will help you improve your asset management strategies and get the most value from your infrastructure funding. You’ll learn how to save time, save money, and save lives while delivering safer longer-lasting transportation networks.
Better Roads with a Design-Build Approach
The design process is key to delivering safe, sustainable infrastructure. Simplifying the infrastructure design process can help reduce risks and costs. Tim Martin, President of 2TM Consulting Engineers, explains the design-build approach and how it improves the success of pavement projects.
Pavement Data Collection in Newly Industrialized and Developing Countries
Flexibility and agility are increasingly required to manage quickly evolving infrastructure strategies and technologies. For teams working in newly industrialized and developing countries, adaptability is paramount. Richard Wix, from the Australian Road Research Board, shares lessons learned from collecting pavement data on six continents.
Segmental Bridges and Their Long-Term Sustainability
Building the right bridge infrastructure can help reduce strain on the environment. Gregg Freeby, Executive Director of the American Segmental Bridge Institute, explains how segmental bridges offer a cost-effective, long-lasting alternative to traditional bridge construction.
Autonomous Vehicles & Their Impact on the Infrastructure Network
Today's vehicles come with many types of driver-assist technology, but will the vehicles of the future be completely driverless? Steve Karamihas, PhD, from the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute, explores the current and future state of autonomous vehicles.
Creating Sustainable Power Through Pavement Energy Harvesting
Meeting the world's energy needs is a challenge our transportation infrastructure can help solve. Solar panels on rooftops are a familiar sight. But solar panels in roadways? Samer Dessouky, PhD, PE, from the University of Texas, San Antonio, sheds light on the innovative technology that enables pavement infrastructure to generate renewable power.
Improving Transportation Infrastructure Sustainability Using Pavement Life Cycle Assessment
Professor John Harvey from the University of California, Davis, says adopting a pavement life cycle assessment process can help transportation agencies provide safer, more affordable, and longer-lasting road networks.
