Honda’s Robotic Lawn Mower Creates Perfectly Manicured Gardens - PSFK
Honda recently introduced the Honda Miimo, the first commercial robotic lawn mower. The perfect solution for those wanting a beautiful lawn but would rather not–or are unable to–mow it themselves, this robotic helper only needs minimal human interaction when working to ensure a beautifully cut lawn, every day, for the length of the mowing season.
Honda Miimo operates a ‘continuous cutting’ system, typically mowing just 2-3mm of grass at a time, several times each week. It cuts in a random pattern, meaning less stress on the grass, more healthy growth and reduced moss and weeds. To prevent the Honda Miimo from running into the neighbor’s yard, a boundary wire, installed under the ground or in the grass around the perimeter of the garden, helps Miimo navigate the garden through an intelligent combination of controls, timers and real-time sensory feedback.

    "first commercial robotic lawn mower"? How is that? These things have been around for ages - just not for Honda maybe?
