AI and Tunnel Boring Machine

Academic Istitutions are researching how to use technology to better assist tunnel boring machines’ operations. The studies show that an operator can’t control more than three or four of the more than two dozen parameters TBMs generate, to include real-time information about surface and subsurface settlement, vibrations, cutter-head speed and...
