Skiing Robot Carves Up The Snowy Mountain Slope – Video

This mechanical skiing robot is shown racing downhill on the ski slopes. It’s programmed to ski slalom-style or straight downhill racing.

The robot is autonomous, and contains a complex sensory control system. An on-board camera identifies gates on the slope while a GPS system tracks position and velocity.

Here’s a nice video explaining how it works and showing the robot skiing down the mountain..

But there is still a lot of work to be done!
