AUGUST / mowing and watering robot


AUGUST is an autonomous garden robot. It mows and sprinkles the lawn and pours the plants.
AUGUST consits of three parts. The mobile robot, the charging station and the senders.
The mobile robot moves autonomous on the lawn where he mows and sprinkles and notices by a stereo camera system the boarder of the lawn and objects.
The mobile robot goes automatically to the charging station when he runs out of water or energy.
The senders are necessary to mark the plants which should be poured. They detect the humidity and tell the robot by RFID when he has to come and pour the plant.
