How does this robot lawn mower work?
The STIGA autonomous robotic lawn mower cuts the grass within a virtual boundary. The perimeter is set via App and needs no wire. It tells the mower where the edges of the lawn are. The robot is a maintaining mower which means it does not collect the grass but instead the cut grass clippings are scattered onto the lawn that then decompose acting as a natural fertiliser. Programmed to trim the lawn at scheduled intervals, it automatically knows when to return to the charging station.
How can this robotic mower mow without a perimeter wire?
The STIGA autonomous robot mowers don't need a physical perimeter wire, as they are guided by GNSS-RTK signal, combined with the predictive STIGA AGS technology.
AGS is the patented technology by STIGA that equips all autonomous robot lawn mowers. It means Active Guidance System and it is the algorithm that further improves the GPS RTK signal reliability, normally used in open fields but encountering limits when approaching domestic gardens where walls, fences, hedges and garden sheds limit the sky view.
Do I need to download the STIGA.GO App to use the robot lawn mower?
While the STIGA autonomous robot lawn mower is designed to operate more autonomously than any other robotic lawn mower, we've made sure that owners have control over his behavior and status. Our autonomous robot mower is fully manageable via App.
How many possible systematic cutting patterns does the robot lawn mower have and how can I choose them?
The cutting directions the robot mower can follow are: parallel North-South, parallel East-West, Chessboard (a mix of the previous two) and Dense grid (a mix of all previous patterns). The end user can decide to combine different mowing patterns through the STIGA.GO App.
Does the robot lawn mower work at night?
As grass is very humid at night and the garden is occupied by nightlife, such as small insects and hedgehogs, we recommend for both nurturing lawn health and respecting the ecosystem to not schedule cutting sessions overnight.
