Process reliability on road construction sites is heavily dependent on the knowledge of the various users due to the comparatively low degree of automation in compaction technology. Consequently, automation solutions for asphalt compaction compatible with the work process possess great potential to ensure quality and efficiency. As part of a research project by the Department for Agricultural Engineering and Mobile Machinery of the University of Applied Sciences Osnabrück together with the roller manufacturer Hamm, approaches and process algorithms were developed that permit automated machine guidance behind the road paver.
