Give the job to a robot. Robotic mowers resemble a Roomba, except they target grass instead of dust bunnies--traveling around your yard to keep your pasture in check with their spinning blades. Unlike their gas-guzzling, human-steered counterparts, these battery-powered bots are quiet enough to work at night (making about as much noise as a window-unit air conditioner). And because they run automatically on a schedule you set, you can deploy them with abandon. In fact, a robotic mower performs most effectively when used a few times a week, trimming a small amount each time.
IRobot eventually won permission from the Federal Communication Commission to use ultra-wide bandwidth for wireless robotic lawn mowers -- though not before Harvey Liszt, spectrum manager for the National Radio Astronomy Observatory, argued to the FCC that "there is already a competitive market for robotic lawn mowers using wire loops, which has somehow failed to stanch the stream of ghastly accidents and spilt gasoline that iRobot associates with the mundane practice of lawn-mowing."
If your garden is your pride and joy, then you'll know that it takes a lot of work to maintain. It doesn't have to be this way, though. The lawn is the jewel of any impressive garden. There really is something special about a perfectly manicured lawn, especially when you know the owner has probably put hours into its upkeep. You can cut that time considerably with a robotic lawn mower.
Robot vacuums have now been around long enough that you might watch one bump around a living room and think, why isn't there a robot that could mow my lawn? Turns out, it's not for lack of trying. For more than a decade, iRobot, the company behind the Roomba vacuumbot, has been working - and working - on robotic lawn mowers. Now it finally has something to show for the effort, though it's come at a cost. This Wednesday, Jan. 16, 2019 photo shows an iRobot Terra lawn mower in Bedford, Mass.
If you are like most people, the last thing that you want to spend your weekend doing is mowing the lawn. The average number of hours dedicated to lawn care a year is 70 or more. Wouldn't you rather master a new hobby or take in a movie rather than deal with the drudgery of lawn care? Not content with automating vehicles, Honda decided to automate the lawn mower. It is no surprise that Honda has developed a robotic lawn mower.
