Autonomous Greens Mower (Retrofit Kit)

self_driving_mowers

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:

  • GPS-based (cm-precise) mowing
  • 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
