POSITEC (Germany)

Robotic mower – Intelligent solutions for a safer garden

Lawn mower injuries among children and pets are a serious concern. To make the garden as safe as possible for everyone, Positec developed a cutting-edge intelligent mower with a wide range of safety features.

Every Landroid mower is equipped with low-inertia, auto-retracting blades and sensors that stop the blades from spinning if the robot is lifted. The robots also feature a proprietary electronic control capable of differentiating between progressive load increases (denser grass) and sudden load increases (the blade hitting an obstacle). In addition, the company has introduced unique ultrasonic sensor technology that automatically steers the robot away from obstacles as well as a ‘save-the-hedgehogs’ mode: a function that restricts the operation to daylight only, when the small, nocturnal mammals are sleeping in their shelters.

“The extra safety features benefit small children and animals and are all well explained,” said the Jury.
