Husqvarna and GreenSight integrate autonomous mowing into complete turf management system
Husqvarna and GreenSight Inc. have entered into a strategic partnership to combine their technologies and create a comprehensive solution that empowers turf managers to heighten the quality of turf care, use fewer natural resources, and greatly reduce costs in their overall management practices. The solution, TurfCloud combined with Husqvarna Automower, will initially serve large-scale outdoor facilities such as golf courses and sports turf facilities. Numerous trials have yielded impressive results that have created new efficiencies and reduced labor needs.
Husqvarna designs and manufactures the Husqvarna Automower and Husqvarna CEORA robotic mowers. GreenSight, a leader in robotics, is defining the benefits of daily drone imaging at golf and sports turf facilities with TurfCloud, GreenSight’s Cloud-based turf management platform. TurfCloud also allows turfgrass professionals to proactively monitor and manage their turf and their teams.
“Our low noise, emission-free Automower combined with the GreenSight’s suite of digital management tools, sensors and imaging is a revolutionary step forward in turf management for golf courses, sports facilities and other public green spaces,” said Jason Connor, director of commercial robotics at Husqvarna. “Our EPOS technology provides unparalleled flexibility and eliminates the need for physical boundary wires, making the Automower a perfect complement to the GreenSight digital solution.”
“Bringing together two leaders in ground and aerial robotics is a natural partnership that has resulted in an industry changing turf management solution,” said James Peverill, GreenSight CEO. “Integrating Husqvarna’s robotic mowers into our TurfCloud golf course management system creates an efficient and effective solution for golf course superintendents and turf managers that makes their jobs easier while improving turf quality and easing staff resource constraints. The new platform brings together all of the turf manager’s drone imagery, sensor data, agronomic tools, labor, and robotics planning systems; into one revolutionary integrated digital command center.”
