Honda unveils Miimo robotic lawn mower, Asimo’s new friend

Article by Christian A., on August 28, 2012

After Honda was celebrated for its ASIMO Robot project, it has finally released its first commercial robotic product – a robotic lawn mower. Honda said that in Europe, there appears to be a fast-rising market for the robotic lawn mower. Honda designed the Miimo to help in maintaining a pristine lawn. It said that the Miimo saves on time and labor.

As soon as it is installed, it requires minimal human interaction when working to guarantee a law that’s beautifully cut every day for the entire length of the mowing season. Honda’s robotic lawn mower has been equipped with a ‘continuous cutting’ system that mows a minimum of 2 to 3mm of grass at a time, several times each week.

Furthermore, it cuts the grass in a random pattern. This means that the grass is under less stress and it has healthier growing patterns and reduced moss and weeds. The clippings from the Miimo are so tiny that they are left on the lawn where they act as a natural fertilizer. Powering the Miimo is a self-charging high-performance, lithium-ion battery. When the Miimo has to recharge, it goes back to the docking station on its own.
