The Podcast Roundup – Episode 094 – Oct. 20th – Oct. 26th, 2019.

The BIMsider’s favourite Podcasts, Vodcasts and Videos from the world of AEC and BIM – for the week of Oct. 20th – Oct. 26th, 2019.

I’m going to start this week’s Podcast roundup off with a new podcast from the Built Revolution Podcast.


2) Podcast – From the AEM Thinking Forward Podcast


Summary from the Podcast website:

“In the U.S., around 13 million acres of land are used as roads and rights-of-way in the interstate highway system. That’s a lot of real estate, and all it does is provide a surface on which to operate cars and trucks.

But a pioneering new experiment in Georgia, known as The Ray, is reimagining what roads could look like if they multi-tasked. Allie Kelly, the executive director of The Ray, says their 18-mile stretch of highway is using IoT technology to communicate with smart cars, generating solar power, and even growing crops.

In this edition of the podcast, she explains how their project could mean new opportunities for the manufacturers of construction and agriculture equipment.”
