If you are a happy owner of a house, house or any other property with a lawn, then you probably know the problem of caring for it. The most practical ones simply vacate the vegetable beds on the free land and look like grass like grass, but there are also those who prefer a well-maintained "green carpet".
For the second, iRobot, well-known for the robust vacuum cleaners of Roomba at home, he started his first lawn mower. Unlike classic ship monsters that you need to press in front of you, instead of enjoying your hammock, the iRobot Terra Robot Mower is a compact, stand-alone electrical device.
It is enough for the site owner to mark his boundaries using special wireless column-tags, after which the iRobot Terra will go on its own to mow the lawn. Non-free technology Imprint Smart mapping allows the lawn mower to map the site, avoid obstacles and not exceed its limits. You can manage the iRobot Terra using the iRobot HOME App mobile application, where you can select the desired cutting mode and set the time interval for the activity.
As soon as the battery is reduced to a minimum, the robot sends it independently for charging to a separate station. Creators say that iRobot Terra can run at least an hour from full charge, after which it will need two hours of charging. If the battery is discharged in the middle of the planned route, the robot will individually start charging, and then extend the task from the same place where it was previously stopped.
The IRobot Terra model is made in a waterproof body that faces life expectancy without any problems, and is also equipped with spring knives and anterior bumper to protect against damage to the body from obstructions. The sale of this electric lawn mower will start in Germany this year, the beta program will start first in the United States, and only then will the commercial sales begin, the price has not yet been announced.
