Volta's Mora Robotic Mower

Volta, an Italian company that specializes in the integration of artificial intelligence into traditional home appliances, introduces Mora™, the world’s first robotic mower that operates without the need for a boundary system and exceeds all current standards of safety. 

The Mora robotic lawnmower requires no installation, digging, wiring nor dozens of battery-powered beacons to guide its progress across a lawn. Instead, Mora deploys an A.I.-based autopilot to visually navigate the intricacies of every property and stay self-confined to the lawn.

With Volta’s patented Drop&Mow™ technology, you simply lay the mower on a grassy surface and the Mora mower uses the visual autopilot to accomplish its lawn mowing task.

“Mora’s autopilot recognizes and avoids obstacles – including edges, pets, garden tools, toys of any color and shape, even human body parts. Mora excels where traditional lawn mowers fail. Mora’s contactless sensor exceeds the standards prescribed by IEC 60335-2-107 and the new ANSI/OPEI 60335-2-107-2019 presented this week at the Green Industry and Equipment Expo in Louisville, KY. Mora can even detect and avoid an object as thin as a towel laid on the grass. Mora also respects small wild animals - too often injured by robotic mowers in commerce.

The Mora model “S” will retail in 2020 from $1,799.95 for lawns up to 0.4 acre (1600 m2). Volta will announce further details and the final design of Mora models during Myplant & Garden Fair, a three-day trade show in Milan on February 26-28, 2020. Pre-order reservations are now available on website www.volta.ai/mora/.   Please visit https://youtu.be/cN_p1OPiN6A for a video presentation of Mora.
