Autonomous Greens Mower (Retrofit Kit)


Turn your golf greens mower into an autonomous greens mower with precise perimeter mowing, obstacle detection, arbitrary mowing patterns, arbitrary turns etc.:

  • Autonomous golf mower retrofit kit for Jacobsen Eclipse 322 golf greens mower (autopilot for RTK-GPS based localization, radar-based obstacle detection)
  • Autopilot software (automatic mapping & path tracking) for autonomous mowers
  • Mobile apps for autonomous mowers (Android and iPhone)

Autopilot software features:


  • cm-precise mowing (based on RTK -GPS localization)
  • arbitrary shapes and mowing patterns (can be adjusted to your target domain, golf course, football ground, farming, park, private garden etc.)
  • automatic mapping of the path layout after learning the perimeter (can be adjusted to your target domain like golf course, football ground, farming, park, private garden etc.)
  • shortest-path finding with obstacle avoidance
  • arbitrary clearance distance to perimeter and obstacles
  • adjustable to other hardware (e.g. riding mowers, golf mowers, seed and plant robots), different types of steerings like differential wheel steering or ackerman steering and path planning and tracking

Golf greens mower retrofit kit overview:


The front (and rear) obstacle detection can detect people, trees etc. and smaller objects. The autonomous golf mower will slow down when objects are approaching and stop when objects are getting too near.

Includes camera-based detection of golf balls and flagpoles (detection works at night and day):

Path planning and tracking for larger robots (golf course, park, private garden etc.):
