ECOVACS has revealed its first foray into the great outdoors with the GOAT G1 robotic lawnmower. Launching on the 21st of September, the GOAT G1 will retail for $2,999 and will be available through most major retailers in Australia, including JB HI-FI, Harvey Norman, Bunnings and Amazon.
What makes ECOVACS' entry into the robot lawnmower market interesting, is precisely what makes it such a competitive robot vacuum manufacturer; the mapping technology at the core of the GOAT G1. Over the years, ECOVACS has refined its mapping and navigation technology to the point where its most recent products outshine industry heavyweights like Dyson.
Many robotic lawnmowers require you to lay physical boundaries, so the robot knows where it should and shouldn't shave a bit of green off the top. The GOAT G1 simplifies things with a set of "beacons" around the lawn that assist the robot's Ultra Wideband (UWB) sensors and dual cameras that accurately map out your lawn and any obstacles or difficult terrain your backyard might present.
In addition to its usual lawn-mowing duties, the GOAT G1 can also be deployed as a home security device thanks to its dual cameras (360-degree panoramic and wide-angle fisheye lens) and "multi-spot guarding" features, which sends the robot on a set route like an enemy sentry from a video game.
Stay tuned for more news about the GOAT G1 ahead of its September launch in Australia.
