CURRENT STATUS: We have a working autonomous 80 kg prototype and a control center with video feed. We launching 250 kg version in Spring 2019. This will start serving customers immediately.
The core problem with snow removal industry is that it is reactive, not proactive. Heavy machinery, that costs hundreds of thousands of euros, is used only when it has stopped snowing or when snow has reached a certain height. Constant snowfall makes it impossible for service providers to be everywhere at once.
Lumebot self-driving snow removal robots are more than 10x cheaper to make than snow plows. This allows each parking lot to have a dedicated snow removal robot. Through continuous work, it is able to keep the parking lot clean 24/7.
