Abstract

As automation in the construction site of the future becomes a reality, position location systems are necessary to provide real-time data to an operator. This thesis addresses problems associated with development of a real time automated position location system using a method similar to hyperbolic navigation. methods. The Automated Position and Control (APAC) project is a joint effort between the Civil and Electrical Engineering departments at Virginia Polytechnic and State University and Bechtel Eastern Power Corporation.
