Robots taking our jobs: Nissan’s self driving painer draws lines for sporting events

Nissan’s Propilot technology is at the heart of its self-driving efforts, but for its latest demonstration it is working on a much smaller scale: a roving robot that uses the autonomous driving technology to draw up different soccer pitches to exact dimensions, whether that be for five-a-side pickup games or larger fields for professionals to ply their trade. Nissan’s Pitch-R robot uses a set of four-cameras, GPS and obstacle avoidance systems to scan its surroundings and find a suitable place for a pitch. It then draws up the lines with dissolvable white paint in as little as 20 minutes.
