iRobot received approval for a robotic mower
Federal Communications Commission – FCC in the United States gave formal approval of iRobot for the creation of an autonomous lawn mower. The first rumors of a similar type devices have emerged about a decade ago, but since then the manufacturer of robots for cleaning is not given more information about the project.
Although we do not know the details, but we can be sure that iRobot develops autonomous mower. The device will be oriented with the help of pins stuck into the grass that will connect wirelessly to the robot and will provide information on areas that need to be mowed. The main opponent of the decision was the National Radio Astronomy Observatory – scientists expressed concern that the signals of pins can cause confusion with the frequencies used by telescopes. This argument was rejected and the problem will be eliminated by imposing a restriction on frequencies that can be used by lawnmowers of iRobot.
