How it works

The Process

In our systems, we use fleets of optimized robotic mowers where each individual mower are used on multiple surfaces. Each robot usually serves 5-7 surfaces/week and then resumes with the first surface again the week after. This means that each robot gets considerably higher efficiency than conventional use of robotic mowers. It also makes it economically possible to cut the grass with robot mowers even on large plants with several separate grass surfaces. No need for electrical installations - the system is fully battery driven.

Step 1: Together with your team, RLCS identifies areas suitable for robotic lawn care
Step 2: RLCS calculates the proper number of robot lawn mower units required
Step 3: Thereafter, RLCS delivers and installs the system in the identified areas
Step 4: Your team receives education about the system and its simple maintenance
Step 5: Now, your team can start its daily operations and its new routines
Step 6: Let the robots go to work while you complete other tasks and increase productivity

Step 1: Together with your team, RLCS identifies areas suitable for robotic lawn care.

We visit you and evaluate which surfaces are suitable for the robot mowers and we look over the conditions for it to work. Do the robots handle the slopes? What is the shape of the field and does it have narrow bottlenecks? How well will the mowers cut around obstacles such as trees, flower beds, water, etc? How big are the surfaces and how many mowers do you need? There are many questions, but we have a lot of experience with this and also solve the tricky parts. In this phase, we can also give an approximate price on the installations in your lawn areas.

Step 2: RLCS calculates the proper number of robot lawn mower units required.

RLCS calculates the proper number of robot lawn mower units required. After assessing the conditions, we put together a system that suits you and give you a quote on what cost you can expect for the mowing. Things that we take into consideration are parameters such as; How long drive will you have to deploy the robots in different fields? What’s your work schedule and how many days a week do you have staff available?

Step 3: Thereafter, RLCS delivers and installs the system in the identified areas

Once we have agreed on system size and set up that suits your organization, we will deliver the hardware including robots, transportation modules, base stations and base plates with connecting boundary wire. When all is set up, and the boundary wire is trenched into the ground, we test the robots on all designated fields and make appropriate settings in the robots.

Step 4: Your team receives education about the system and its simple maintenance needs

We train your staff in the simple service measures that are needed and how everything works. We help you get started with the app functions and give you a suggestion for the weekly deployment schedule.

The weekly deployment schedule works like this: Let’s say you have 10 acres of lawn area that we together find suiting for the robotic lawn care system. Each robot can cover up to ½ acre per day, so under normal circumstances, this can be covered by approx. 5-6 robots, operating daily for 8-10 hours, 5 days per week. Based on this, we will develop a weekly deployment schedule that works for your organization and your working hours.

Every day, you start out at your workshop, where you hook the trailer on to your truck and head out to an area where you have about 2 acres of lawn (⅕ of your 10 acres) preferably within pretty close reach from each other. You deploy the robots and connect the base stations in the morning and then continue on to perform other more important tasks while the robots cut the lawns. During the day you will have full control over the robots through an application in your mobile device. When the day is over, you collect the robots and bring them back to the workshop. In the workshop, you connect the trailer to one (1) power outlet to charge the whole robot fleet and all the base stations.

During the second day you repeat the same work routine, but bring the robots to a different area, covering another ⅕ of your 10 acres. This routine will then be repeated for day 3, 4 and 5 but in different locations. When Friday has come to an end, the robots have covered all the 10 acres, and can start over the sequence on the following Monday.

Step 5: Now, your team can start its daily operations and its new routines

The system starts up and you can enjoy the reduced workload and the silence. We are connected to all robots and follow how the system works with you and come up with tips on how to make it optimal. The grass grows considerably more during certain times and hardly at all under others. We help you get it smooth and functional. If you ever need any support or help, we will be there to assist you. If any fault occurs with any of the robotic mowers, we will solve it in the best way to get as short a breakdown as possible.

Step 6: Let the robots go to work while you complete other tasks and increase productivity

Leave the poor work environment to the robots while keeping your crew busy with safer and more challenging tasks. Maybe even find time to finish those services that have been neglected on the to-do-list for a long time. By freeing your workforce expertise you will develop an inspiring workplace and parallel tasks can be added to enhance your lawn care customers’ experience.

The Technology

Improved Lawn Mowers

  Modified for purpose robotic mowers that can cut up to 1/2 acre per day.
  Non-stationary, ability to cut multiple fields during the week.
  Enough power to cut for 10h and recharge in 1.5 h to enable quick deployment in the next field.

Transportation Solution

  Transportation solution that includes a system for collective charging of mowers and base stations.
  A truck or trailer can typically hold 6-20 robotic lawn mowers.
  One operator can deploy robots and start cutting in around 10-15 fields per hour.

Power Grid Independent

  Both robots and boundary wire are battery driven and power grid independent, and lawn areas can be cut at any location.
  It’s a safe solution since there is no risk for high current accidents.
  Easy to use and anyone can install and maintain.
