Development of Robotic Lawnmower Miimo HRM3000

Article of Honda R&D Technical Review Vol.30 No.2


A robotic lawnmower has been developed that mows lawns efficiently and simplifies placement, cleaning, and operation.
It uses an efficient method for turning within the mowing boundaries to shorten the time required for mowing.
In addition, in order to facilitate mower cleaning, the robotic lawnmower is the world’s first to be given a waterproof frame that is washable with a garden hose.
Also, whereas existing robotic lawnmowers have limited options for where to place the docking station for charging, this robotic lawnmower was enabled with a system for returning to the docking station from any angle in response to user demand for as much freedom as possible in station placement.
Furthermore, the mower has a likable exterior design and can be linked with smartphones.
