So remember back in 2016 robin demonstrated on stage the possibility of a robotic mower, well guess what, they just introduced and patented an automatic doggie door for the mower to go through from the backyard to the frontyard.
It’s pretty common, after all, to have a back yard isolated from the front lawn by a wood or chainlink fence so dogs and kids can roam freely there with only light supervision. And if you’re lucky enough to have a robot mower, it can be a pain to carry it from one side to the other.
Isn’t the whole point of the thing that you don’t have to pick it up or interact with it in any way? Justin Crandall the man incharge of the robin team said “We generally dock the robots in the backyard for security. When it’s time to mow the front yard, the robots drive to the door we place in the fence. As it approaches the door, the robot drives over a sensor we place in the ground. That sensor unlocks the door to allow the mower access.”
It patented but their are also some top rivalries to the robin, like the irobot(remember) you could check out everything you need to know about the irobot in my previous post.
