Abstract

Autonomous lawn mowers have been identified as one of the most famous innovations in the recent past. However, complex operational functions, data acquisition methods and the high costs of supporting items result in the expensive nature of these autonomous lawn mowers which in turn dissuades its use in domestic environments. Primary objectives of the research comprised of building a system to identify the working perimeter by means of waypoint identification and the development of an algorithm to detect obstacles in the path followed. This paper presents the completed mechanical design of an autonomous lawn mower prototype while innovating the art of lawnmower fabrication by using colour identification camera modules for path planning with the aid obstacle avoidance integrated in it.
