Robotic lawn mower with weather timer and GPS

Credit: Husqvarna, Automower 308
In early May Swedish Husqvarna, the leading manufacturer of robotic lawn mowers, will release three new Husqvarna robotic lawn mower - Automower 308, Automower 320 and Automower 330 X.
According to Husqvarna the third-generation robotic lawnmowers will be much more intelligent, convenient and eco friendly. Two of the new mowers will have a feature which Husqvarna calls weather timer. The lawn mowers can measure the thickness of the grass and calculate how often it needs to be cut. One of the new mowers will be equipped with GPS navigation, which means that it will know where on the site it has to cut. The boundary wire however will be deployed for signal transmisson. A new feature will be that two new models can be put in eco-mode, which means that the power to the cable will be turned off when the mower is in the charging station, for lower power consumption.

these robots are very useful and since they works fully autonomously human intervention is at minimum. As we can see in this article http://www.intorobotics.com/top-5-most-advanced-robotics-lawn-mowers/ almost all these mower robots can cover a large surface which is a very important feature

The initial outlay on something as high tech as this is likely to be very high, but it will soon pay for itself in the time that you save mowing. My biggest concern with robot mowers has always been their attractiveness to thieves, though I suspect this has a built in alarm system it won't deter the most determined criminals.
