Developing an autonomous robot for outdoor environments is, well, uh... What is it?
It’s a robot that autonomously finds its way in your yard, around the pool, over the terrace, between the BBQ and the garden table, along the driveway, through narrow passages, is safe with kids & animals, understands where you want wild grass for the bees and the butterflies, through the orchard...
Well, developing an autonomous robot for outdoor environments is hard and complex. Because it has never been done before it’s revolutionary. We are at the forefront of the robot revolution, just like in 1977, when humankind was at the forefront of the personal computer revolution.
By having a Toadi at home, you are part of this historical moment.
And although Toadi doesn't work fully autonomously in all complex outdoor environments yet (see Autonomous Level Overview), you will immediately enjoy your robot to its full potential. Thanks to our free Remote Control Service.
Be part of the robot revolution to accelerate the transition to a sustainable world.
Remote Control Service.
The Remote Control Service allows you to enjoy your robot to its full potential. The Service exists out of 2 services:
Remote Control Panel With the Remote Control Panel, you have direct access to Toadi’s wonderful robot technology. You can control your robot, you can access robot data, you can see the A.I. at work and be immersed in it, just like in the movies, you can capture data & train the A.I., you can test early Beta developments, and many many more...
Remote Control Operator With the Remote Control Operator service you have an external operator control your robot to solve the challenges where Toadi needs support in your environment (see Autonomous Level overview).
This is possible in a secure & safe way, you will get notified when a remote control operator gains access to your robot and when they stop controlling it.
Best of all? Both of these services are free as long as we're in Beta and you have a good Wi-Fi coverage allover your garden!
|Robot skillset||Autonomous||Remote Control||Working for you|
|Mowing the lawn with A.I. (non-perimeter wire)||100%||Irrelevant, 100% autonomous||100%|
|Surveillance, at the docking station||100%||Irrelevant, 100% autonomous||100%|
|Auto-docking when the charger is on grass||80%||20%||100%|
|Auto-docking when the charger is on the terrace, at max. 3 meter away from grass||62%||38%||100%|
|Auto-docking when the charger is on non-grass, at more then 3 meter away from grass||33%||67%||100%|
|With two zones and a small path in between||30%||70%||100%|
|With more than 2 zones or separated by a long path in between.||10%||90%||100%|
|Extra skills coming soon in early Beta release|
|Efficient mowing (large areas, in straight lines / patterns)|
|Fixed digital perimeter (stop mowing when there is no visible boundary)|
|Safely avoid slopes > 40%, like ditches, streams, ponds without visible boundary. Eg., with grass on the slope|
