Bike lanes have a textured coating for skid resistance and visibility. The coating application process is time consuming and labour intensive. Currently, the paint & aggregate coating is applied by manually masking, spraying, and brushing. The goal for team “Cyclane” was to design a machine with Quest Construction Products to spray bike lanes and brush the coating evenly across the lane, while maintaining a defined edge. The machine is self-propelled and travels behind a truck that provides the necessary power and supplies. The Cyclane machine is a scaled-down, proof of concept version of a machine to spray bike lanes at a constant rate.
