The Land Care Robot is aimed at rural property owners and small acreage farmers who use ATVs, lawn tractors, sub-compact and compact tractors to get work done. Since it can do work day or night, unsupervised, it can help free up time and reduce tedious work. A robot can mow up to 10 acres on a single charge, more if using a electrified deck. The robot recharges within 2 hours from the grid, or within 3 days from the sun (April to September). In addition to mowing, it can use a variety of implements/attachments and perform road maintenance, trim and haul. We have also tested it managing snow, with testing continuing this winter.
Eliminating fuel logistics, being independent of centralized infrastructure and doing work with energy generated where its used, gives you back time and reduces operational cost. It also leads to more quiet operation, more time to do work instead of refueling or driving back to a charging station.Estimate Range, Work Area, Runtime
You can walk up to the robot, connect your smart phone to its WiFi, and within one minute have it mow an area you defined on a satellite map, or grade a road on your property. You can monitor the robot from your home, from anywhere, and configure tasks at any time.
You can drive the robot directly, just by tilting your phone, or using touch gestures on the screen: its fun!.
Yes, the robot can be scheduled to independently do work in a predefined area, and it will stop on its own when the work is done or there is a safety issue. The user can track its progress in real-time, from anywhere.
Time is money and the Land Care Robot eliminates seat time and multiplies the capabilities of the land owner. The Land Care robot does not use fuel, leading to additional savings.
We designed our machine so it can be repaired on the field. If a component breaks or malfunctions, the customer orders a replacement, receives the component, installs themselves or with our help. We use off-the-shelf components in most places, and we can make the chassis and reduction plate drawings available for customers, if they want to machine / make them locally. Our electronics brain is the widely available Raspberry PI, our sensors are easily sourced from multiple online vendors.
In the first phase of our reservation process, the customer submits an email address and is assigned a priority number in the build queue. There is no commitment until Q2 of 2020, where we will send a follow up email to confirm the reservation and request a small deposit to initiate the robot build. The customer can opt-out at any time before their robot build starts, Q2 2020.
