What looks at first glance like an all-terrain supercar is actually designed to mow your lawn, even on undulating terrains, and can even be operated by voice command
Husqvarna has released its Automower 435X AWD, an artificial intelligence-enabled, robotic mower with all-wheel drive and smart home connectivity.
The company describes the impressive-looking machine as an “iconic, fully autonomous robotic lawnmower”.
Automower is designed to manage rough terrain and slopes with and can climb steep slopes of up to 70 percent, and works with Amazon Alexa, Google Home, and provides an open API for smart home integration.
Husqvarna, one of the leading suppliers of robotic mowers, says its new machine is “a game-changing robotic mower for homeowners with challenging lawns and connected homes”.
Olle Markusson, director product management at Husqvarna, says: “Husqvarna Automower 435X AWD sets a new standard for robotic mowers, combining a perfect cut in ‘impossible gardens’ with multiple product interactions, including conversational AI for Amazon Alexa and Google Home integration.”
Starting this spring, Husqvarna Automower 435X AWD, and all other Husqvarna robotic mowers with Husqvarna Automower Connect, will be able to use voice commands via Amazon Alexa and Google Home.
Advanced users can design their own program for the robotic mower via the open API.
In addition to the built-in safety feature that automatically stops the mower if it is lifted up or turned over, Husqvarna Automower 435X AWD is also equipped with several new features to increase safety.
With Ultrasonic, a remote object detection feature, Husqvarna Automower 435X AWD reduces its speed as soon as it senses a nearby object.
