Honda Miimo Robotic Lawn Mower Released
We’re here now to talk about the company’s latest step: Honda Motor Europe has recently introduced the Miimo, a robotic lawn mover. Those of you who thought that Europeans were action-focused and Americans were lazy, have to find out that the European robotic lawn mover market is a “fast-growing” one, which is one of the main reasons for which the company has launched the Miimo, its first commercial robotic product for domestic use.
Let’s hear Honda explaining how the little creation works:
-Honda Miimo cuts little and often, typically mowing just 2-3mm of grass at a time, several times each week. It cuts in a random pattern.
-Unlike a traditional lawn mower it doesn’t need to collect cuttings, as the clippings it creates are so small that they are dispersed into the lawn root system, breaking down quickly to act as a natural fertiliser.
-Honda Miimo navigates the garden through an intelligent combination of controls, timers and real-time sensory feedback. It works within a boundary wire, installed under the ground or in the grass around the perimeter of the garden. Powered by a high performance, long-life lithium-ion battery, it is self-charging, constantly monitoring its battery level and returning to its docking station when it needs to recharge.
The range for the launch version will be comprised of the 300 and 500 models, which offer a perimeter of 300 and 500 meter, respectively. To get an idea of their capabilities, we can tell you that the 500 model can mow a surface of up half the size of a typical football pitch. The Honda Miimo will go on sale at Honda dealers (where else?) early next year.
