Summer Dreams: Case Western Wins Robotic Lawnmower Contest
2011 Case Western Reserve team winning robotic lawnmower
June 26, 2011
A team from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio took home the top $15,000 prize and a special award for the most aesthetically pleasing cut in the three-day 2011 Robotic Lawnmower Competition held in Dayton, Ohio on May 31 through June 2.
The second place award of $10,000 went to Auburn University and Wright State University won the third place prize of $5,500.
In this year's event, sixteen college teams pitted student engineers and their robotic creations against each other to see which one navigated a set course most quickly and accurately. (The lawn that endured these experiments is now resting comfortably at Siebenthaler's Beaver Valley Garden Center in Dayton.)
