If you are a happy owner of a farm, a country house or another property with a lawn, then you probably know the problem about it. The most practical thing is to grow a garden garden in free ground and capture any grass as a weed, but there are also those who prefer landscaped green coats.
The latter is the iRobot, well-known for its extensive Roomba robotic vacuum cleaner line, and has launched its first lawn mower. Unlike classic tasting gasoline monsters that you need to attach to the front, not to enjoy the hammock, the iRobot Terra Robot Mower is a compact standalone electric device.
It is enough for the site owner to mark their boundaries using special wireless column marks, after which iRobot Terra will be alone to mow the lawn. The patented Imprint Smart Mapping technology allows the lawnmower to map the site, avoiding obstacles and breaking its boundaries. You can manage IRobot Terra using the iRobot HOME App mobile application where you can select your preferred cutting mode and set the activity time interval.
Once the battery charge is reduced to a minimum, the robot will send a dedicated station for charging. Developers say that from the full charge iRobot Terra can work for at least an hour, then it will take two hours. If the battery is discharged in the middle of the planned route, the robot will continue to charge independently and then continue the task from the same location where it had stopped earlier.
The IRobot Terra model is made of a waterproof casing that seamlessly touches street life and is also equipped with spring blades and a front "bumper" to prevent body damage from obstacles. The sale of this electric lawn mower will start in Germany already this year, but the beta program will start in the US and only then will commercial sales begin, the costs have not yet been announced.
