  1. THAT’S pretty COOL! but the thing that is really ELEGANT about it is ALL the jobs it will provide… in designing and building them including the software!

    I fully expect to see the Asian-built model shortly!


  2. Well, a radio controlled snowplow anyway. That’s not to say you couldn’t make an autonomous one, especially for clearing parking lots, but the difficulties and complexity involved go far beyond those encountered in making and programming robot lawn-mowers and vacuums. Let me think about it…

    • tractors can plow a field autonomously , can be pre-programmed with GPS coordinates to follow which you could
      do also to a plow but it would also need to be able to detect and take alternative paths around them.
