A step forward in lawncare: Automower® NERA
Big things are coming this year and it begins with the release of Husqvarna’s highly anticipated Automower ® NERA.
Husqvarna launched their EPOS™ (Exact positioning operating system) three years ago for commercial users. Unlike previous robotic mowers, these mowers did not require a boundary wire installed around the perimeter but instead operated using satellite navigation technology to create virtual cutting zones which can be altered using the accompanying app on your mobile phone. This gave those commercial users a huge improvement in flexibility.
This year, they are bringing this technology to private gardens with their launch of Automower® Nera. This offers those who have private gardens the ability to work without the use of guidewires, limiting any potential issues that damage to the wires may cause and offering increased flexibility.
As well as being wireless, these models also arrive with a range of upgrades. Including the object avoidance feature. This built-in technology aids the mower in detecting and avoiding objects.
When applied, the detection mode will reduce the speed of the mower and make collisions softer and the avoidance mode will make the mower turn to avoid impact.
What is EPOS™ technology?
Exact positioning operating system is satellite-based technology that allows the mowers to be within virtual boundaries set via the app. To do this an EPOS™ plug-in kit will be required (Sold separately) Reference stations are set up around your garden this is what helps the mower receive satellite signals. From there you set up your boundary via the app and off the mower goes.
This technology allows you to alter where your mower mows at any time. Say you have guests over last minute but don’t want to interrupt your mower taking care of the rest of your garden. Create a virtual stay-out zone on the app and your mower will keep out of your way but still maintain the rest of your garden.
Once it is finished or its battery is getting low, your mower will then return itself to its charging station to recharge for the next mow without you doing a thing.
Husqvarna has three models of the NERA Automower® available for private gardens:
