SHENZHEN, China, May 17, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Mammotion, a provider of innovative electric robotics tools, today announced the launch of LUBA, the company’s first perimeter wire free robot lawn mower. Designed specifically for residential use, LUBA is poised to revolutionize the future of lawn care maintenance by replacing traditional gas-powered push and ride-on mowers, as well as existing robot mowers requiring perimeter cables, through smart robotic technology.
With Mammotion’s commitment to shaping a more intelligent, efficient, eco-friendly outdoor lifestyle by providing solutions in innovative robots, LUBA includes the following key features:
- No perimeter cables required creates a quick and simple set-up without the need to painstakingly dig or bury wires. The advanced RTK system ensures precision positioning within 2cm of accuracy, LUBA can work automatically.
- Intuitive all-wheel drive system with in-wheel motors and rugged tires, enables LUBA to traverse a variety of mowing zones and climb up to a 75% slope. Equipped with best-in-class power, LUBA can easily navigate uneven or rough terrain without getting stuck.
- Smart Obstacle Avoidance relies on a four-ultrasonic radar sensor system, detecting and avoiding objects as small as 2 inches.
- Multi-zone management efficiently maps different zones and allows users to automate specified tasks and requirements in Mammotion app for each zone including mowing date/time, cutting plate height and cutting route.
- Auto recharging ensures no job is too big for LUBA. The mower will automatically return to the charging dock when the battery is low and then resume the paused session once it’s 85% charged; allowing up to 5000 ? to be mowed daily.
- Real-time, anti-theft monitoring provides accurate and precise tracking to automatically lock LUBA if it’s been taken out of its existing boundary. The GPS tracking function allows users to track LUBA in real time and users will be notified of potential theft in real time with an alert via the Mammotion app.
According to industry reports, the global robotic lawn mower market is expected to reach a value of $3.5 billion by 2026 and register a CAGR of about 12% – the residential segment will account for a substantial portion of this growth. The demand for yard and lawn care services is on the rise in North America and EMEA, opening the door for Mammotion to capitalize on the market opportunity, with both individual homeowners, as well as landscaping service providers.
"The residential lawn care market has remained relatively unchanged for years and is in desperate need of innovation," said Jidong Wei, founder of Mammotion. "This is an industry ripe for disruption and with the acceleration in robotic technology capabilities, Mammotion is ready to lead the charge in powering the next generation of smart robot mowers. We are very pleased to introduce a product like LUBA – one that is technologically advanced and precise, yet simple and easy to use – to take the ‘work’ out of yardwork."
LUBA will be available as of May 19th, 2022 through a Kickstarter campaign for a Super Early Bird price of $1,199, a 52% savings off the MSRP of $2,499. Following the Kickstarter, customers can purchase LUBA directly from Mammotion or via Amazon, which will be available later this year.
