The connected home is increasingly present in all the habits and environments we have at home. We have seen how Wi-Fi networks reach, for example, the kitchen or the bathroom and now even the garden, it can also be automated. And the best example is the Ecovacs GOAT G1, a robotic lawnmower that integrates different technologies to facilitate garden care.
It’s the Ecovacs GOAT G1, an autonomous robotic lawnmower that comes from a company that may sound familiar to you because of its cleaning robots. With the experience that the development of other types of devices for the home gives it, the company has decided to develop this GOAT G1.
The Ecovacs GOAT G1 is a robotic lawnmower that stood out for its clean design and futuristic touches in which the contrast between the white color of the casing and the black tones is striking. In addition, the small antenna to facilitate connectivity gives it the appearance of a remote-controlled toy.
The main feature of this mower is that works autonomously thanks to the use of several cameras capable of recognizing objects. To work, it uses two 3D cameras (a 150° panoramic camera and a 150° fisheye camera) that use Artificial Intelligence to recognize obstacles and offer visibility of up to 100 meters.These cameras also serve as surveillance. of a robot, the GOAT G1, which integrates into the connected home thanks to its Wi-Fi connectivity.
In a similar way to what happens with robot vacuum cleaners, this Ecovacs GOAT G1 also allows you to establish lines, limits and delimit the areas in which we do not want it to mow the grass. For it uses a kind of beacons that are combined with the use of GPS. However, to establish the first mapping, it is necessary to fully explore the entire garden.
The GOAT G1 works thanks to a 5,200mAh battery which, according to the brand, allows it to cover an area of 600 square meters. In addition, to work outdoors without problems, it has IPX6 certified water protection.
Price and availability
The Ecovacs GOAT G1 will be available from April 3, 2023 through the brand’s online store at a price of 1,599 euros.
