Road Printer brings automation to the painting of road markings. Arrows and other road markings are typically painted by hand. Road Printer is a rolling painting device that can be programmed to paint a number of icons on the road surface with a jet spray. A solar panel on the top of Road Printer generates its power. The menu buttons are large and tough enough to withstand being tapped with the feet or pushed with the hands. A paint cartridge swings from side-to-side between the track wheels. A paint reservoir at the rear can be easily refilled.
