According to a Swedish study published in 2001, operating a typical four-stroke, four horsepower lawn mower for an hour produced the equivalent emissions of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) as driving a car for 150 kilometers (93 miles). This just goes to show that the environmental impact of lawn mowers can really add up (article link here).
There are hundreds of thousands of gasoline-powered mowers working across the globe every day. A huge amount of carbon is emitted from these mowers. While almost every country is talking about carbon neutrality by 20xxs. There is a need to call for action to move from gasoline-powered mowers to electrical mowers, just as we do from moving fuel engines to electrical gar or hydrogen-powered cars.

Weston Robot's electric robotic lawn mower CHAFER™ is powered by a 36V/48AH power, which can operate 4-hours per charge. The battery is easily swappable enabling service provider to bring extra batteries on their truck to enable 8 hours non-stop working. With a 30A charger, we can fully charge the battery in about 2 hours.

The Electric Robotic Lawn Mower CHAFER™ can climb 30 degrees of ramp and can operate on tough terrains (e.g., some wet areas) enabling for many sites, especially in many parks in Singapore. The robot mower can work in any traveling direction, and can make the turns on the spot, making is super-efficient when mowing till the end of the job, while conventional man-driven mower often has a big turning radius.

The Electric Robotic Lawn Mower CHAFER™ can also work at the road edges to reduce the human interventions. Going forward, we will add more intelligence to the mower, such as 5G-enabled remote operation enabling robot operator to work remotely. We will also add GPS/RTK-based autonomous navigation to allow automatic grass cutting to further enhance the efficiency.

- 06-053D lidar is one of the key enabling technologies that helps robots see and understand our world. Ouster's 3D lidars have been widely adopted in autonomous driving and robotics research and deployment. Weston Robot now officially partners with Ouster to promote the lidar-based navigation for outdoor robotics applications.
Weston Robot Launches Robots to Combat COVID-19Weston Robot (Singapore) launches mobile robots to combat COVID-19. The mobile disinfection robots enable disinfection using chemicals for open area, and UV lights for enclosed spaces (MRT and dormitory). The mobile temperature screening robots proactively search for persons with abnormal body temperature. It can also be used for mask detection and social distance measuring.
Remote-Controlled USV for Garbage Collection at Singapore PortUnmanned Surface Vessel (USV) equipped with M1 5G perform garbage collection and water surveillance at Marina Keppel Bay (MKB) Singapore to test M1 5G coverage on the water area. A piece of good equipment that reduces water pollution (no gasoline required), remote cleaning, creating more high-tech jobs and cleaner water area for all to enjoy.
