Bosch Robotic Lawnmower

Credit: Bosch, Indego

German Bosch recently released a new robotic lawnmower based on patented logicut technology. The Bosch Indego lawnmower identifies the lawn area up to 1000 sqm by itself and is four times faster than other lawnmower robots thanks to its cutting scheme. The robot is activated via a pin code and protected with an alarm system.
On a single charge the robot can mow 200 sqm, which takes about 20 minutes. Then the robot drives itself back to the charger, charges for 90 minutes and then continues where it left off. It takes about 10 hours to mow 1000 square meters. The robot is also economical and environment friendly as a clipping of the lawn will cost under SEK 1 ($ 0,14). For a conventional gasoline-powered lawn mower costs in Sweden about 10 times as much to mow the same area. Sales of a limited number of Indego robots will start in Denmark and Sweden in summer 2012. The robot is prized in SEK 14.995 ($ 2118).

WOW ! Once I had written an article on ecology based robotics - http://mobotica.blogspot.in/2011/11/ecology-based-robotics-sneak-peek.html - which had mention of futuristic robots which could attend to lawn mowing - this is some revelation ! :-)
