Our software and off-the-shelf sensors add Autonomous Mowing to commercial zero-turn to reduce the labor cost of lawn maintenance.
The Autonomous Stander ZK from Wright Manufacturing is the first Robotic Ready™ mower equipped with Autonomous Mowing, currently deployed in small fleet rollouts.
Since we upfit commercial mowers, there are no questions on cut quality, deck fabrication, or how the mower drives after 3 years of going over curbs. Plus, when the market goes electric (or hybrid), our software already works great on those mowers, too.
With Greenzie Autonomous Mowing on commercial mowers, you get access to a global dealer network that will fix, or give out loaner mowers. We started with distributors and dealers on our cap table and that network keeps growing, just like the grass.
A physical switch between autonomous and manual operation offers trust that crews can always get the job done. We are moving quickly up the ADAS autonomy ladder, hitting the 80/20 of jobs, right now.
We let humans focus on the details since robotic workers aren’t good at slopes (yet), nor really detailed areas (yet), but you know who is right now? Us humans. Let robots do the repetitive work. Yup, that's a football field.
Low latency, industry standard depth-cloud based, velocity-biased look-ahead means ever vigilant, never blinking, never tired on the job, lightning fast detection of objects above the ground plane.
Our software stack is industry-leading, built on top of ROS and Linux. It boots up in less than 10 seconds, auto updates, and works with off-the-shelf robotic sensors, automotive parts. We are applied roboticists (not theoretical).

We have partnered with Wright Manufacturing first, to equip the stand-on mower that started it all, the Wright Stander ZK.
This ruggedized, safe, productive mower is Robotic Ready™ and equipped from the factory with Autonomous Mowing, and available in 52", 61" and 72" models for limited small fleet rollouts now.
It's like adaptive cruise control for mowers. The robotic worker software is a seamless addition to commercial mowers, utilizing robotic sensors, while still allowing standard "manual" operation. The software maps the boundary using software and cm-level accurate RTK GNSS (aka GPS), fusing that with commercial-grade Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) devices, along with odometry to create a software based boundary. We then create waypoints to mow the lawn and use our hardware interface to directly control the mower, safely and securely.
Think of it as your robot assistant to handle the repetitive striping. You define the area to mow, and let the robot finish the job, while you edge, weed, blow, and do enhancements.
Safety is our first priority. In the future, we will look back and wonder why we let humans operate this dangerous equipment prone to rollovers, cuts, burns, eye injuries, and countless other forms of traumatic harm. Right now, the human operator accepts the responsibility for the safety of those nearby by being physically on-board the mower. We will gradually reduce the need for the human to be in the loop, but still allow the robot to be controlled safely. There is no way to completely eliminate the hazards associated with a lawn mower.
However, we have several key safety systems following IEEE standards for automated machinery including rock solid wireless electronic-stop, and depth-sensing object detection. Learn more about how we put Safety First.
If you're a landscaper, let's talk about how to get you in front of the line.
If you're a manufacturer, let's up-fit your mowers to be Robotic Ready™ and make Autonomous Mowing a standard feature.
Since Robotic Ready™ Mowers are built by manufacturers and available (soon) at your local dealer, ask your favorite one about pricing and availability.
Autonomous Mowing robotic worker software is $1,000 per month. And it never shows up late, or calls out sick.
