WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - If you hate shoveling snow you may want to invest in what some Purdue University students have invented.

The invention is a robot that can clear snow from your driveway while you stay inside.

It's called the Snow-Bot, and it runs on batteries, and uses sensors to stay on the pavement.

They hope a consumer version could be developed and sold for about $1,500.
