Roads and road markings are what make traffic possible. But how is a road typically constructed? What are the necessary steps and materials required to build a road that will last for decades and ensure safe use throughout its lifespan? This article looks at the different phases of road construction and road marking and what equipment is used.
Using the TinyPreMarker, road marking company WJ in the UK have added autonomous line marking to their service portfolio, with high increases in speed and efficiency – and with positive effects for safety on the job.
According to WJ’s own tests, the robot is capable of marking 30 km per shift, compared to 6 km per shift for human workers.
The TinySurveyor robot can be used for many purposes and by many different industries. In order to provide an overview of some of the opportunities, we created this e-book which gives a short introduction to the robot, its applications and the benefits and capabilities.

TinyPreMarker was used for setting out pre-markings in a £600m UK highways upgrade project. The pre-marking robot ensured increased productivity, greater accuracy of road markings, a reduced margin for human error and increased safety on the job. See how the engineers and operators used the robot and read about their experiences in this report.
Construction Europe published an in-depth article on roadbuilding. The feature focuses on the newest machinery and technology innovations from companies such as Volvo, Caterpillar, Doka and TinyMobileRobots and how they are used in roadbuilding projects in the UK, Germany and Austria.
