School Uses Robot to Paint Lines on Sports Field


 From the Journal & Courier https://www.jconline.com/story/news/2021/08/21/gps-guided-robot-helps-turn-lafayettes-loeb-stadium-into-soccer-pitch/8208720002/ 

 LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Loeb Stadium is much more than just a baseball field with it being used as a commencement ceremony site, a venue for possible future concerts and now, a soccer field…

…The soccer field lines were painted on by field management company GPS Lining. According to GPS' website, "the world’s first and most comprehensive autonomous GPS paint robot" is used for painting the soccer field. "Intelligent One," as the robot is called, uses Global Positioning System (GPS) technology to paint concisely straight lines. "It's a really neat process, they used a robot," Miner said. "They gave it like two GPS points and that robot would get to where the line stopped and it shut off the chalk paint and would turn around and come back."
