Husqvarna launches AI enabled robotic mower with AWD

Husqvarna, the world leader in robotic mowers, launches a game changing robotic mower for homeowners with challenging lawns and connected homes – Husqvarna Automower® 435X AWD. With an all-wheel drive system and a new unique body design with two connected bodies, Husqvarna Automower® 435X AWD robotic mower can climb steep slopes with an incline of up to 70%. To put the number in perspective, a black downhill slope has an incline of approximately 40-60 %, and the incline of a ski jump hill measures about 70 %. The new robotic mower from Husqvarna can manage areas of up to 3500 m2and operates at 62 db.

“Husqvarna Automower® 435X AWD sets a new standard for robotic mowers, combining a perfect cut in “impossible gardens” with multiple product interactions, including conversational AI for Amazon Alexa and Google Home integration,” says Olle Markusson, Director Product Management at Husqvarna.

Multiple voice interaction for Husqvarna’s connected robotic mowers

Starting this spring, Husqvarna Automower®435X AWD, and all other Husqvarna robotic mowers with Husqvarna Automower®Connect, will be able to use voice commands via Amazon Alexa and Google Home. Via these voice-controlled speakers, the user can manage the mower. Advanced users can design their own program for the robotic mower via IFTTT or the open API. In addition, Husqvarna Automower®Connect also works with GARDENA SmartSystem, adding irrigation to the smart garden.

Voice interaction will first be available in English, followed by German and French. Additional languages will follow.

New safety features

In addition to the built-in safety feature that automatically stops the mower if it is lifted up or turned over, Husqvarna Automower®435X AWD is also equipped with several new features to increase safety. With Ultrasonic, a remote object detection feature, Husqvarna Automower®435X AWD reduces its speed as soon as it senses a nearby object. Together with a front rubber bumper, Ultrasonic ensures a soft impact when the robotic mower comes in contact with an object. Husqvarna Automower®435X AWD also has automatic passage handling and LED-headlights.

There are several optional accessories for Husqvarna Automower®435X AWD, including replaceable top covers in white and orange as well as a brush kit that keeps the wheels clean to improve traction even more.
