2010 Competition Results
The 7th Annual ION Robotic Lawnmower Competition took place June 3-5, 2010 in Dayton, OH. Winners are posted on the competition summary page.
The purpose of the competition is for universities and colleges to design and operate a robotic unmanned lawnmower using the art and science of navigation to rapidly and accurately mow a field of grass.
The 2010 competition consisted of basic and advanced categories. The winning teams for both categories are based on the highest total score.
A separate award is given to the team which cuts the field with the “best cut.” Details on the best cut award are given in section 1.2
Cash awards presented to the top three teams in each category. In addition, special international recognition will be provided for all participating teams in the ION Newsletter. Winning teams will be invited to display their mowers during ION GNSS, and will have the opportunity to present their robotic mower design.
Videotapes of the competition event will be distributed to sponsors, media, and the public.
