A team of Auburn University engineering students has built a robotic lawnmower that could soon help homeowners cut grass while relaxing on the back porch.
The team recently placed second at a robotic lawnmower competition in Ohio.
The Auburn entry was constructed using a lawnmower donated by Briggs & Stratton and equipped with an array of sensors.
The goal in the competition was to cut a rectangular field of grass with one obstacle. Auburn's entry got half the job done in the 20 minutes allotted.
