 Post subject: new cool robot project
trying to come up with an idea for a robot that can clear snow.
what do you think im thinking like a snow blower or snowplow
so heres the plan the the robot has to remove snow and has to have tires or has to have tracks and emergency lights such as like a amber light and can be driven by either a remote control like a rc remote control or by computer and have good distance.

can some one help me with this project thanks.

Hi zachshobbies,

Welcome to the RobotShop Forum. Do you have a budget you want to stick to? A size? Take a look at the How to Make a Robot to give you some ideas. Feel free to brainstorm here and show some of your concepts.

Sincerely,

Hi,

It's important that you provide additional thoughts such as a budget? A size? Do you have previous experience with mobile robots? In order to move snow, you'll need powerful drive motors and high gear down, a large battery, tracks or very "sticky" wheels and have the whole robot enclosed and water resistant. You should be able to use a standard R/C system.

Hope this helps,
