From the SnowBot Pro to the Google car, self-driving robots & vehicles share many of the same core technologies

At Left Hand Robotics, we’ve built a driverless robot for snow removal, and reservations are being taken now. GPS, LiDAR, and sensors are some of the core technologies at the foundation for self-driving robots for many applications — from cars like the Google self-driving car, to manufacturing, industrial and outdoor tasks. The SnowBot Pro is the first commercial-class, cloud-connected, sidewalk-sized self-driving robot that clears snow automatically.
