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.
