Autonomous Lawn Mower Competition
- As time goes by, navigation systems (including GPS) are becoming more and more a part of our daily lives. However, there are still applications where the potential benefits of navigation have not yet been fully tapped. Take lawn mowing, for example. Who has not, while sweating behind a lumbering lawn mower on a hot July day, wished that there was a robotic lawn mower that would do the job for us (while we sat in the shade drinking lemonade)? The Dayton section, being located in southern Ohio and well-known for particularly large lawns and particularly hot and humid July days, has decided to do something about this.
