All I can say is it doesn’t get any better than this for a startup company. The city of Longmont Colorado saw the potential of our snow-clearing robot and were anxious to start testing it in the field. Lucky for SnowBot, we have had a snowy 2019 so far, so the folks in the Longmont […]

In June 2017, we debuted the SnowBot Pro at the biggest snow management trade show in the world, the SIMA Snow and Ice Symposium, and today we are planning our production schedule so we can start delivery of brand new SnowBots to all of those on the reservation list in late 2018 — they’re being assembled at our own facility in Longmont, Colorado by the way.
Left Hand Robotics CEO & Co-founder Terry Olkin answers the most commonly-asked questions we hear. 1. How big is the SnowBot Pro? The first time snow management pros see the SnowBot Pro, they have a lot of questions. Thinking about the impact robotics can have on their industry is new to them, but it […]
For most people, the end of the year is relatively calm as you take time off to spend with family. Businesses tend to go quiet and not much happens in the news. But none of that was true at Left Hand Robotics. We were hard at work putting the final touches on our robots as […]
A few days ago, we loaded up a SnowBot Pro and drove 60 minutes west of the Left Hand Robotics headquarters in Longmont, Colorado to the Colorado high country in search of fresh snow. We were lucky to arrive in the early morning to find newly fallen snow, and it wasn’t long before we had […]
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.
SnowBot Pro is the first commercial, self-driving robot to clear snow from walkways. Our new mowing attachment will allow users to use their SnowBot to mow roadsides, medians and open fields — those large areas that need cutting, but can take hours with a manned mower.
We have not only filled every slot in our 2017-18 SnowBot Pilot Customer program, we have a growing waiting list! We’re rethinking how many SnowBot Pro snow clearing robots we will produce when they become publicly available in early 2018 for the winter season.
