Autonomous robot helps California high school turf maintenance crew cut labor time

April 27, 2023

Robert Zavala, maintenance and operation site lead for Kerman High School (Calif.), told ABC 30 that he started using a Turf Tank autonomous robot to mark lines on the school’s athletic turf after it was recommended to him by a friend.

The robot uses GPS to mark lines on athletic turf fields, including football, soccer, baseball and track and field.

According to Zavala, the robot has cut down his preparation time from 3 1/2 days to 5 hours.

“I can go on and move onto filling in letters or the other stuff that needs to be done for the football field prepping for the game,” Zavala told ABC 30.

Matt Armstrong, field operations engineer for Turf Tank, said the robots are also in use in Kingsburg, Selma, Orosi and Edison High in Fresno, Calif.
