For lawn mowing, there’s already several robotic solutions.
* Honda sells the Miimo
* a company called LawnBott offers a variety of lawn bots
* Friendly Robotics has a bunch of really friendly looking mowing robots.
* Husqvarna is a company with a long history in the grasscutting biz. Husqvarna also has deep experience with robotic lawnmowers; it introduced the first consumer model in 1995. Now it sells two: the Automower 230 ACX ($2700) and the Automower 265 ACX ($3700).
All of these systems tame your turf with a minimum of human oversight.
Robotic mowers are a rarity on American lawns, though they are popular in Europe, where landscaping services are particularly expensive.
