SnowBots to the Rescue! – Lefthand Robotics Scales up Production
Snow news out of Boulder Valley, Northern Colorado, reported by BizWest that Left Hand Robotics Inc, a manufacturer of snow-ploughing robots, is stepping up production of its SnowBots by bringing on 10 clients to participate in a pilot scheme.
The SnowBots are designed to solve the problem of clearing large amounts of snow in treacherous and inhospitable conditions. Routes are entered into the SnowBot using its GPS system.
LIDAR, thermal and ultrasonic sensors are equipped on each bot to detect obstacles which the bot assesses and will pause all operations until a human operator can assess.
