The LCR is an autonomous, solar-electric, multi-purpose, heavy-duty land care robot. Using implements attached to the category 1 three-point hitch, it can manually or autonomously mow, haul, groom, plough snow, spray, till, hoe and more. It comes in various configurations (e.g. with tracks and 4WD). The LCR uses a low-cost combination of depth cameras, GPS and IMU and a topological probabilistic model to navigate in dynamic, structured and un-structured environments. It uses user-defined paths and work areas or visual cues to follow a person or peer machine, all controlled by a low-cost Raspberry Pi 4 computer. It has a stainless steel, modular, field-repairable chassis.

Availability: It is available in the USA, Canada and throughout the world.
