Local inventors create prototype that can make painting roads safer, less expensive – fox8.com

Good News Notes:

“A pair of local inventors have developed robotic technology they say can make painting roads safer, faster and less expensive.

Former Cleveland Heights auto shop owner Sam Bell and Case Western Reserve University professor Wyatt Newman formed RoadPrintz, Inc. and invented the system. They equipped a proof-of-concept truck with a computer-controlled robotic arm to paint symbols on roads, including transverse markings, bike symbols, school zone markings and turn arrows.”

“Traditionally, road-painting is done by hand with workers using a stencil, and annual upkeep can be costly.”
