A project log for Solar lawn sheep

Solar powered robot that continuously, quietly and autonomously grazes the lawn

While the focus of my efforts at the moment are on concepts for grazing, I thought I would also capture my thinking for locomotion...

The development steps I'm expecting are:

  1. Move and steer on grassy terrain
  2. Detect what is and isn't lawn and stay on the grass
  3. Have a strategy for finding the sun to recharge when required
  4. Move in a way that covers every part of the lawn as evenly as possible

So far I have had a few ideas:

Once again, if you have any bright ideas, let me know in the comments...

Until next time,
