October 16, 2019

Mean Green Products, a manufacturer of commercial electric mowers along with The Kobi Company launched a large area robotic mower on the show floor at this year's GIE+EXPO. The robotic mower features a 74-inch deck and has been dubbed "ATOM"

“We are proud to be working with The Kobi Company to convert our latest electric mowers to quiet, zero emission autonomous mowing machines” said Mean Green Mowers’ President Joe Conrad. “It’s a natural fit to combine our latest commercial electric mowers with high tech robotic automation”. 

“We have designed our autonomous mowing module with mower speed, accuracy, and safety in mind. By using the latest in computer vision technology and arti􀂦cial intelligence, we have been able to produce a system that can easily navigate any environment, even below trees and up close to buildings” exclaims Kobi CEO Andrew Ewen. “After years of writing code and exhaustive testing, we now have a safe and affordable autonomous solution for commercial landscape operations”. ch

ATOM features AI technology that allows the mower to recognize humans (and animals) so that it avoids them while in operation. At the Mean Green booth, the company was demonstrating through VR goggles how the mower actually operates.
