Robin Autopilot, a provider of robotic mowing and landscaping technology, and Graze, Inc., a developer of fully autonomous commercial electric lawn mowers, have announced an initiative that will test both companies’ eco-friendly solutions for Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW), which manages over 14,000 acres of grass.
Robin Autopilot’s solutions include robot-as-a-service (RaaS) technology that enables clients in the lawn maintenance and landscaping industry to offer environmentally friendly, cost-efficient and labor-saving services for residential and commercial landscapes. Its multi-manufacturer platform includes partnerships with several leading equipment manufacturers, including Graze, Husqvarna, ECHO, NexMow and Spider, offering clients a wide range of solutions to choose from.
Graze’s autonomous electric mowers are designed to serve large-scale properties such as airports, golf courses, parks and government facilities, including properties with high-security requirements. The company provides solutions that can increase profitability, reduce expenses, and enhance the safety of landscaping operations. Its mowers offer better quality cutting than gasoline-powered mowers, as well as environmental benefits to help companies achieve their sustainability goals.
Robin launched a multi-manufacturer initiative at DFW in June, focusing on landscaping maintenance across the airport’s campus, including its corporate headquarters, Founders Plaza, and dams. “Graze and Husqvarna mowers tested extremely well in both effectiveness and efficiency for the project,” said Logan Fahey, Chairman of Robin Autopilot and Chief Executive Officer of Graze.
“We are excited about the success of this initiative and we look forward to the possibility of expanding it and other key programs to serve enterprise-level customers in the rapidly growing autonomous mowing industry throughout Texas,” Fahey said.
Headquartered in Los Angeles, California, Graze plans to open an office in the DFW area later this year to focus on serving new clients, particularly airports and golf courses, throughout the region. Graze’s mowers will be on display in both Dallas and Austin for institutions to view.
