Toadi launched its AI-powered yard robot, Toadi, in the U.S. with object recognition and security features.

While Toadi is currently available throughout Europe, Americans will now gain full access to the autonomous landscaping robot for the first time.

The Toadi self-driving lawn robot works by integrating a camera with artificial intelligence to recognize and avoid objects in front of it, such as trees, animals and other people. The technology behind Toadi’s autonomous AI-powered features is similar to the kind currently in the automotive industry. The device needs to drive around a designated area for Toadi to recognize its dimensions and start mowing with its titanium coated blades. The robot can also map new areas by itself, and it’s possible to designate no-mowing areas.

Toadi offers security elements such as night vision up to 32 feet and the robot continuously keeps a 20-foot distance with people it encounters. At the same time, it sends an alert to its owner’s phone about any stranger in the yard.

Toadi says it prioritizes sustainability in its production methods by using 3D printing materials and placing production facilities in the countries in which they operate to hire local talent.

“Launching Toadi in the U.S. is the first big step to speeding up the transition to a sustainable world through worker robots,” said Wesley Lorrez, founder of The Toadi Order. “Toadi is designed to make the life of people with a lawn easier. Since there’s no need for perimeter wire, you don’t have to chop up your yard. The guarding function will make you feel safer.”
