Dandy Technology Debuts New Lawn Care Robots

August 30, 2022

Boston-based Dandy Technology has announced the debut of its Dandy DT-01 and DT-01XL Lawn Care Robots, which combines artificial intelligence, GPS, and visual processing with a robotics platform to create a robot designed to specifically weed a lawn. The robots will cost $699.99 (DT-01) and $899.99 (DT-01XL), and can maintain lawns of one-quarter up to one acre, respectively. The DT-01 will ship in November, and is available for pre-order in a limited quantity, with full production of both models available in Q1 2023.

“Our incredibly talented team of engineers has created something truly unique that will benefit anyone with a lawn,” said Peter Wokwicz, CEO of Dandy Technology. “No longer will our customers have to waste time and use excessive chemicals to maintain their grass – with our robots, all that is needed is to run the robot every few weeks during the growing season to keep their lawn virtually weed-free.”

The company said its robots also use as much as 90% less chemicals by recognizing and targeting individual weeds and spraying a localized stream on them. Because the robots use off-the-shelf herbicides, customers can use location-specific weed killers, or opt to eliminate non-organic weed killers in favor of organic solutions for a weed-free lawn. Dandy said two or three runs at the start of a season can maintain a weed-free lawn, with maintenance runs as needed.

The system also utilizes an app-based approach that lets users set up a geofence with go/no-go zones for the yard, be updated on the water and fertilizer needs, get the status of the robot, and be notified when it is safe to go on the lawn or even order herbicides. The free app, available for either iOS or Android phones, will be available when the robot ships, Dandy said.
