From The Pool To The Lawn: Aiper Set To Revolutionise The Smart-Yard Ecosystem With Its First-Ever Robotic Lawn Mower

Known for its innovative cord-free robot pool cleaners, Aiper expands its suite of backyard product offerings with a new cutting-edge cordless robotic lawn mower – the Horizon U1.

The Horizon U1 was debuted by Aiper, the global leader in smart-yard robotic solutions, at the 2024 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada yesterday.

A category first for the brand, the Horizon U1 will expand Aiper’s product offerings from the swimming pool to the yard, helping to effortlessly maintain even the unruliness of lawns.

The new robot, which will be available in Australia from July 2024 via Aiper’s website, will feature wireless mowing capabilities as well as first-of-its kind technologies that enable the lawn mower to cut all grass types fast and efficiently.

Aiper also announced its first-ever app for iOS and Android, giving the ability to remotely control the robot and more, making lawn maintenance easier than ever before.

The Horizon U1 boasts Aiper’s sleek, lightweight, compact, and cord-free design – and is optimised to automatically cut grass of all types in yards up to 32,000 sq. ft.

Aiper CEO and Founder Richard Wang said it’s time to stop wasting energy with manual lawn mowers to achieve a well-groomed lawn, when you could be using that time to enjoy the backyard and outdoor entertaining.

“We are always growing and evolving our portfolio of products to meet and exceed the needs of our customers. Investing in R&D, the Horizon U1 is a technology advancement that will change the game in lawn care.”

Aiper Australia ambassador and The Block judge Dave Franklin said the Horizon U1 is an exciting development for Aiper and is an opportunity to enter the backyard category.

“I love the innovative technology, compact design and powerful cleaning ability of Aiper’s robotic pool cleaners, so I’m excited to see this technology applied to the backyard category with the launch of the Horizon U1. It will be a gamechanger for the Australian market, and I can’t wait to put it to the test across our upcoming projects,” he said.

In addition to being cord-free, the Horizon U1 cordless, robotic lawn mower has several innovative features that deliver limitless precision mowing capabilities for an adaptive, efficient, and superior user experience, specifically:

Boundary Setting

The Boundary Setting is designed with precision mowing, manoeuvrability, and ease-of-use in mind. Unlike other robot lawn mowers that require hours of complicated pre-setup involving in ground burial of boundary wires, the Horizon U1 sets boundaries around the yard at the touch of a button via the Aiper App and without any wires. Locating itself, the robotic mower utilises real-time kinematic positioning (RTK) and an inertial navigation system (INS) to function as an onboard GPS system providing centimetre-level precision across the yard.

The Horizon U1 is compatible with Aiper’s cordless Signal Relay Station (sold separately) to support more complex navigation environments and reach both the front yard and backyard.

Precision Mowing

An industry first, Horizon U1 automatically adapts to different grass types and conditions, achieving a smooth and exact cut across the entire lawn. The adaptive blade technology utilises a four-link cutting disc structure and spring suspension design to achieve forward and reverse rotations to accommodate all terrain types and ensure an even cut that will be

the envy of all the neighbours. Through a combination of sensors and navigation technology, the Horizon U1 features Intelligent Path Planning technology for precise end-to-end coverage for a beautifully uniform lawn.

Maneuverability Around Obstacles and for Safety

Sensing its surroundings to avoid obstacles and to create a safer user experience, the Horizon U1 uses Aiper Vision Technology which combines cameras and sensors with an AI-enhanced algorithm to capture real-time environmental information and precisely determine its current position. As a result, the smart robot can avoid common obstacles found in the yard – from a trampoline and a basketball to small animals – making it safer for users and pets.

User Experience

To enhance the user experience, the robotic lawn mower features an autonomous battery monitor to optimise yard maintenance and reduce waiting time. This intelligent recharging system enables the Horizon U1 to automatically return to its charger after dropping below 10% to quickly return to 80% and continue mowing without human interference.named CES Innovations Award Honorees.
