Conga AI-powered robot lawn mower with three HDR cameras arrives on Kickstarter
The Conga AI-powered autonomous robotic lawn mower is currently crowdfunding on Kickstarter. The gadget uses three onboard HDR cameras and VFL technology rather than a traditional boundary wire to navigate its way around your garden, with multi-zone AI mapping and location accuracy within 3 cm (~1.2-in). RTK-GNSS enables the mower to handle multiple zones, moving between them and adjusting settings as necessary. Plus, the robot can detect and avoid obstacles in as little as 0.1 seconds.
You can adjust the grass-cutting height between 25 and 85 mm (1.0 to 3.3-in) and the Conga can tackle inclines up to 57%. The mower can cover an area of up to 850 m² (~9,149 ft²) on a single charge and will automatically return to dock when the battery is running low; this should allow the gadget to cover a lawn up to 1,800 m² (19,375 ft²) in size each day. You can control the lawn mower with a smartphone app, altering the settings and remotely unlocking the device.
An emergency stop button and integrated indicator lights help to keep you and your family safe while the mower is working. You can currently receive the Conga autonomous robot lawn mower when you pledge US$799 to the Kickstarter campaign. The company suggests this is 60% off the expected MSRP of US$1,999. The device is shipping worldwide, with deliveries scheduled in March.
