I-Shovel – Robot Driveway Shoveller

I-Shovel

I-Shovel is a smart Robotic Snow Shovel that cleans snow on the driveway in short periodic intervals keeping it clean and ready to use. Its patent-pending technology allows the robot to detect snow accumulation and determine the perimeter of the area to be shoveled. Once it determines the area has received enough snow, the bot goes to work. An onboard battery keeps it shoveling for about 4,000 square feet, which would cover the average driveway at least 4 times. Though it’s still a prototype at this stage, but it’s supposed to be commercially available within a year. [Techeblog]
