Turf Tank has released an improved version of its autonomous marking unit. The Turf Tank Two features dual motor drives for enhanced torque and optimized wheels for traction.
The Turf Tank Two is slightly smaller than the Turf Tank One. It measures 109 x 83 x 75 cm. It is also lighter than its predecessor, as it weighs 55.7 kg without paint or the battery installed. At the same time, it can carry more paint: from 18.2 litres to 20.8 litres.
Revamped sprayer module
The Turf Tank Two also has a revamped sprayer module and advanced control features. This includes a redesigned front panel that has convenient pause/resume options with LED indicators displaying the robot’s status and a start/stop sprayer button. An LED indicator also comes on the battery.
Guided by GPS
Like the Turf Tank One, the Turf Tank Two is guided by GPS. It uses a base station to ensure its accuracy. The base station becomes a fixed point from which the robot knows to paint the same exact field every time it is dispatched. The base station communicates with satellites to ensure the accuracy of the field dimensions.
In late 2021, we discussed various autonomous line marking solutions. Turf Tank One was one of those discussed. You can read the full article here.
