irobot is best known for creating the infamous roomba line-up. terra uses the same mapping tech to trim grass so you don’t have to. simply place wireless beacons (shown below) and drive the bot once around the perimeter. just like a roomba, the terra mower will automatically make the rounds and return to a charging base when it needs some power. also like a roomba, terra can be used with the irobot home app to schedule lawn cutting, adjust the height of the grass and specify areas that are off-limits.
