Electric Sheep launched a new robot for outdoor maintenance using its proprietary AI and robotics software. The new robot, named Verdie, is powered by Electric Sheep’s AI agent, ES1. Using recent advances in GenAI, ES1 allows the company’s Verdie robot to be used for edging and trimming lawns and bushes and blowing leaves.

To accomplish these tasks ES-1 needs to understand the semantics of the world, create a map that can be used for coverage planning and highlight the edges of the workable area.

According to Electric Sheep, its robots don’t require an engineer on site. This is possible through Electric Sheep’s full stack data channel and the large volume of data that the robots are continually trained on.

“We are building an RL factory to train autonomous AI agents to do sustainable outdoor work,” said Nag Murty, CEO and co-founder of Electric Sheep. “The debut of our Verdie robot is the first AI robot for tasks like trimming and edging in the world of landscaping. We will be rolling out the Verdie to our customer sites throughout 2024 and continuing to build out this fleet of robots as autonomous agents trained on outdoor services.”
