Ecovax continues to expand its expertise in robotic vacuum cleaners by announcing the Goat G1 robotic lawnmower equipped with dual cameras and multiple sensors. The Ecovacs Goat G1 won’t be available until early 2023 at an undisclosed price, but it’s shaping up to be one of the most advanced robotic lawnmowers ever introduced.
- Ecovax’s new Goat G1 robotic mower uses a 360-degree camera and multiple sensors.
- Goat G1 has GPS positioning and cutting area of up to 600 square meters per day.
- Ecovax says the Goat G1 will be released early next year at an undisclosed price.
Chinese robotics brand Goat G1 has a 360-degree camera mounted on top and a 150-degree forward-looking fisheye camera. Its pair of snappers can scan up to 100 meters with a shooting speed of 25 fps. There are also sensors for 3D mapping and obstacle avoidance, which are also used on the company’s robot vacuum.
Thanks to the Ecovac Goat G1’s monitoring feature, the company doubles down on security and privacy concerns. It states that the collected data is stored in accordance with TÜV Rheinland certification.
