Yuki-taro is an autonomous snowplow robot created by a team of Japanese researchers from five Niigata-area organizations.

The bot is equipped with GPS monitoring and a video camera in each eye.  Researchers are working to reduce its size and weight, to make the robot commercially available within 5 years at a price of $8,300 USD.
