Robotic lawn mowers with highly advanced sensors

Increased safety for children around lawn mowers

Research News / 1.8.2018

Robotic lawn mowers are great for cutting the grass, but they do pose a risk of injury to children playing nearby. Highly advanced sensors developed by Fraunhofer researchers ensure that the lawn mower shuts down when children are in close proximity. The system, which is based on LiDAR technology, uses a single pulse of light to capture the entire surroundings, covering a range of up to two-hundred meters.
