From corporate golf days to international sporting events, grass advertising provides a unique opportunity for businesses to gain a competitive advantage. In the past, the grass signage industry used manufactured stencils to lay down advertiser logos on sports fields, but these were expensive and lacked flexibility. Five years ago, engineers at Queensland-based GrassAds Pty Ltd combined their knowledge of various industries and skills to create a more affordable way to apply grass advertising. Using proprietary software, digital images are wirelessly communicated to an autonomous robot (GrassAds’ “Logobot”), which drives around the field, recreating the image directly onto the grass. Once the robot has drawn the outlines, company personnel paint within the lines. GrassAds’ robotic technology was originally designed using the Lantronix WiPort® device server to enable the wireless connection between the robot and its control and positioning systems. When GrassAds began working in larger stadiums, interference issues arose due to the huge amount of wireless activity in use in these facilities. GrassAds’ engineers recognized that the wireless connection needed a boost and began investigating various options.

For nearly two decades, Spectrum CNC Technologies has been revolutionizing the computer numerical controlled (CNC) machine tool industry. Its software-based machine tool communications system, MultiDNC, was the first product on the market to enable simultaneous uploads, downloads and dripfeeding of data to multiple CNC controls. Over the years, Spectrum has continued the revolution with innovative products, services and unbeatable support for the best overall value available in the industry. Two years ago, Spectrum began development on a wirelss solution for its Multi-DNC system, something its customers had been asking for. Spectrum knew that a wireless industrial automation solution could bring many new and compelling benefits, including simplified and less costly installation, increased reliability and enhanced flexibility for machine movement. Spectrum CNC also knew that a wireless solution for Multi-DNC would position the company for strong growth. However, company executives did not want to rush to market with an unreliable system. Having worked with Lantronix in the past, Spectrum was confident that Lantronix could recommend the best product to embed wireless networking capabilities into its Multi-DNC system.
