Automation of road surface signs

Road surface drawing device @Whatfs rue-Navi ?

Traditionally, road surface signs required manual labor work. Surfaces were measured manually, marked with chalks, and strings or threads were used for marking and drawing.
The automation of this manual operation is the device we developed-rue-Navi. It contributes to the efficiency of surface markings such as on roads and other public areas.
It has been on sale since October, 2009.

Automation was formerly thought to be difficult because of the uneven conditions of roadwork sites (such as road width, surface, and gradient). rue-Navi has the ability to program letters and symbols into codes. It allows any person to operate this remote-controlled microcomputer device and draw the exact programmed sign in any roadwork or construction site. rue-Navi is a breakthrough in the development of road surface sign application.
