[Worldkings - Wowtimes - Almanac Events & Achievements 2023] Highlights of the 28-year development in the robotics industry of Robomow (1995)


(worldkings.org) Robomow (also known as Friendly Robotics) is a lawn mowing robot company founded in Even Yehuda, Israel in 1995 by Udi Peless and Shai Abramson.

Robomow was originally named ‘Friendly Machines’ with the goal of constructing robots that will, as Udi Peless says in Space Daily, "move in and around the home, doing the mundane tasks that people do not like to do anymore".

Robomow mowers are rechargeable, environmentally-friendly designed to meet all safety standards. Robomow also comes with its own mobile application (the Robomow app) for remote and interactive control.

The company has been mentioned in several magazines including: Design News, Business Wire, Washington Home and Garden and Vanity Fair.
