Most conventional robotic lawn mowers require geofencing, or perimeter wires, to make sure the mower “stays within the lines.” By contrast, Mammotion said its technology allows users to simply walk the perimeter of a lawn once to set a virtual boundary.
Mammotion claimed that its Real-Time Kinematic (RTK) technology provides accuracy to within 2 cm (0.7 in.). RTK also enables a robot to mow separate zones, said the Shenzhen, China-based company. In addition, Mammotion said its algorithms can create planned routes to eliminate repetitive movements and triple mowing efficiency.
The company recently launched its LUBA robotic lawn mower for consumers. Jidong Wei, founder of Mammotion, replied to Robotics 24/7's questions about the robotic lawn mowing market and RTK.

Is Mammotion targeting residential lawns rather than commercial landscaping? How did it make that choice?
Mammotion is committed to leading a smarter and more efficient eco-friendly outdoor lifestyle by providing more solutions in innovative electric robotics tools.
Currently, we offer the LUBA and YUKA robotic lawn mowers to residential and commercial users, respectively, for parks, gardens, and residential yards.
With the Real-Time Kinematic technology, can the mower memorize more than one lawn at a time?
LUBA can memorize more than one lawn at a time. Users can easily create and set different mowing lawns and tasks for different mowing areas in the Mammotion App.
When you need different mowing tasks, you can select them directly in the app.
