Snow Plow Robots

At the ION Autonomous Snowplow Competition teams build autonomous robots that fight to clear the most snow from a designated area without any human intervention. Motherboard visited St. Paul, Minnesota where the event is held annually to witness the bots in action.

The ION Autonomous Snowplow Competition in St Paul, Minnesota is a yearly gathering of top engineers who face-off to see whose unmanned snowplowing robots can best clear the most snow, without any human intervention.
