Painting a soccer field consumes too much time. The process of reeling the string after laying out string along the field needs to improve. As a result, my project addresses improvements in how the workers retrieve the string through the production of an electric reel. This electric reel allows the worker to have control of the speed, direction, and on/off state of the device. Direction control allows the user ability to reel and unwind the string. Variable speed allows the user to control how fast the reel unwinds and reels the string. The device gathers string in an orderly manner and detects when there is unwanted tension. Unwanted tension can come about when there is some form of interruption in the reeling process. The electric reel prevents the string from snapping when harmful tension occurs by detecting unwanted tension. In a basic view, the reel is a tool to address the needs of someone producing a soccer field.
