Robots are invading Amarillo schools, at least athletic fields.

A robotic system called Turf-Tank paints athletic fields and makes the activity less time-consuming and labor-intensive.

Turf Tank can mark a field in a fraction of the time it takes to do it manually, freeing up groundskeepers for other tasks.

It can stripe fields for a variety of sports, from football to lacrosse.

The robotic system uses GPS to ensure precise and consistent line marking, which is crucial for compliance with sports regulations.

Turf Tank makers say it reduces labor hours and the need for repeated corrections, and it can lower the overall cost of field maintenance.

The robot is controlled by a computer tablet, which connects to the robot on the field and is pre-programmed with field layouts.
