Robotic Roadway Message and Symbol Painter Implemenation

Status:  Complete
Report Date:  09/28/2016


This project, which originally began in 2009, would develop a truck-mounted robotic message painter for pavement markings. A computer controlled system has been developed that can automate painting of markings that currently require a stencil. There will be several benefits to Mn/DOT, including: one-person operation replacing a two-person painting crew, faster completion of each pavement marking, safer operation because the operator can remain inside the truck.
