Miimo is a robot that automatically mows the common household lawn. It mows the lawn within a wired boundary, returns automatically to its docking station to recharge when it is running low on power, and, after recharging, continues to mow. The tiny grass pieces that are trimmed will be dispersed back onto the lawn. By letting Miimo take care of the lawn day or night, which normally is a task reserved for the weekends, more time is won by the user to spend with family and enjoy the yard itself. In order for the user to feel more at ease with the product, the mo- wer possesses a friendly, rounded shape with 360o awareness sensors. Miimo is designed to bring luxury to taking care of the lawn. (Description / MAEDA Joji) Launch Year / 2017

There are mowing robots from different manufactures that look sporty, but Miimo has a more reserved appearance. Therefore, it is easier to keep clean from foreign elements, like sand or water. A gray colored lacquer is used for the exterior body, which minimizes the visibility of dirt and scratches. Its main outdoor functions, where it is most dif cult to keep the mower clean, is superbly designed. (Selection Committee / NOGUCHI Daisuke)
