Imagine a hot summer day and the prospect of mowing the lawn. Now picture sitting in the shade and watching the robot do your lawn. Irobot, makers of the Roomba autonomous vacuum have come up with just that, a robot lawnmower.
iRobot, the maker of the Roomba vacuum, announced its first autonomous lawnmower today, the Terra. While most autonomous lawn mowers require people to lay down wire to define their boundaries, the Terra only requires wireless beacons to be placed around the perimeter of a lawn — the idea being it’s a simpler setup. Users will also have to drive the mower around their lawn once using a companion app to teach it where to go and where to avoid.
