Last spring the JLS team spent an afternoon at Scythe Robotics in Longmont, Colorado learning about the most advanced commercial robotic mowers currently being field-tested in North America. These units have state of the art computer vision technology–to detect obstacles, identify them, and take the proper action–all on its own. By utilizing this advanced artificial intelligence, the mower will stop for a person or an animal but will go around a tree or a pole.
No belts, no pulleys, no oil, no filters, no hydraulics with a 52” wide cutting width. Packing a third of the battery capacity of a Tesla, this unit typically mows for more than 8 hours a day before charging overnight. By utilizing this technology, JLS can reduce emission output and fuel usage. Scythe currently has the fifth-generation prototypes working in Florida and Texas, with plans to start mass production in late 2023. JLS has reserved ten of these units and is hoping to have them working with our teams by spring of 2024.
