The ‘Tesla of lawn-mowers’ uses self-driving algorithms to perfectly trim your lawns!

Think of a self-driving car condensed to the size of a lawnmower… That sort of captures what the Toadi is all about. Powered by the kind of AI you’d find in autonomous vehicles (with 4K cameras and sensors that can accurately identify objects in her path), the Toadi is practically the Tesla of lawnmowers. Designed to work less like a robot and more like a living organism, the Toadi reinvents a category that hasn’t seen a significant tech upgrade… and yes, Toadi is a ‘her’.

The Toadi uses 4K cameras to ‘see’ the way humans do. She accurately differentiates between grass, gravel, cemented paths, and even identifies and avoids objects like animals, toys, flower-beds, and fences. Using a sensing and tracking system that’s much more superior to the LiDAR sensors and GPS chips found in home-cleaning robots, the Toadi effortlessly moves around the lawn on her own, mowing in straight lines, crossing over to other parts of the lawn if need be, avoiding flower-beds, objects, or pets (and other garden animals), and staying clear of fences. In fact, her camera sensors are so advanced, the Toadi even serves as a surveillance device, allowing her to spot intruders in your yard at night.

The Toadi comes with a 3D-printed body made from a bioplastic filament that doesn’t result in plastic pollution. Traction-wheels allow her to mow on any kind of terrain, maintaining areas up to 1.2 acres and even being able to travel up-hill at angles of 45%. Titanium-coated blades ensure a perfectly trimmed lawn every time, and Toadi’s mulching process ensures grass clippings are evenly distributed across the ground to naturally biodegrade into the soil while keeping your lawn looking neatly mowed. When the Toadi’s done, she automatically travels back to her Toadicharger hub to recharge for another day, while also serving as a surveillance camera when she’s docked, giving you alerts and sending you pictures if she notices a trespasser. Designed to be an independent self-driving mower, the Toadi doesn’t have an on-board interface, partially because she doesn’t need to. Toadi is powered entirely by an app, follows you around on her first run to understand your lawn better, and then works entirely on her own after ‘observing’ the yard. You can even program her to avoid areas within the app, allowing certain zones of flora and fauna to naturally thrive.

Comparing the Toadi to other home-maintenance robots (the Roomba for instance) would really be a disservice, especially given how advanced Toadi’s sensors and algorithms are. Working on a scale MUCH larger than a home-cleaning robot, the autonomous lawn mower understands sprawling landscapes as opposed to tiny floor-plans, and uses high-definition cameras to see where she’s mowing. Toadi doesn’t rely on collision or proximity sensors to understand where objects are either, she intuitively views objects in front of her just the way a human eye does, and avoids them on her own. With a simple app to power her, Toadi works on her own like your personal gardener, effectively trimming every inch of your yard before autonomously returning back to her charging dock… and when she’s done, she neatly doubles up as your personal security guard by constantly surveilling your backyard for intruders! Makes your current lawn mower look really stupid, doesn’t it?

Toadi – Autonomous Lawn Robot Powered by A.I.

Toadi equipped with a 4K camera and A.I. detects and avoids objects while mowing around your yard without a perimeter cable.

No perimeter cable or (inaccurate) GPS needed. Toadi sees and knows her way around in the same way as humans do, but even better. “We have been Alpha testing Toadi in 150 different yards in 2019 and added 500 more Beta versions in 2020. If this Kickstarter campaign is successful, it will allow us to go from the Beta version to the first production version”, says Wesley Lorrez.

Crossing to another zone, just as we humans do it, Toadi won’t be left behind.

Toadi likes your grass straight and neat.

Mowing borders will soon become available through a free wireless update. Toadi comes with free lifetime updates.

She can handle large areas. If the terrain is all flat she can mow up to a football field in area. Within a highly complex landscape, Toadi needs to travel more and uses more energy. Still, a more challenging landscape can be maintained up to 1.2 acres.

She can leave other areas alone. Just tell Toadi not to mow a certain area.

Titanium Coated Blades

– 4 titanium coated blades
– Easy to replace
– Extremely quiet

The four titanium coated blades will cut through the even toughest grass. By default Toadi cuts grass at a height of 2.36in / 6cm.

You can adjust the mowing height by replacing the mowing disc (3 to 5 minutes work). Available mowing heights:

US 1.29in / 1.54in / 1.77in / 2.13in / 2.36in (default) / 2.6in / 2.84in / 3.19in and 3.54in
EU 3,3cm / 3,9cm / 4,5cm / 5,4cm / 6cm (default) / 6,6cm / 7,2cm / 8,1cm and 9cm

Toadi Uses Mulching Technology


Docking is done autonomously. Toadi will know when it’s time to dock and is able to recognize her station. She will go there when in need of power, ready to go to sleep or when she’s finished mowing. Since there is no perimeter cable you can place Toadi on your terrace or grass or wherever you want.

What Toadi Sees

It’s interesting to see what Toadi sees when recognizing and stopping in front of objects.

Toys, furniture or even a shoe are often left lying in your garden. Toadi won’t drive over them and chop them up. She’ll recognize these ‘unnatural’ objects and drive around them instead.

Hedgehogs too could cross your garden or even chickens might be pecking at the grass. Toadi won’t harass them.

Handle Rough Terrain

Toadi has all-terrain tires. It might be raining for days at a time, making the soil wet and muddy. Toadi is designed to cope with these challenges, she stops mowing and waits patiently for the rain to pass and the ground to dry just for a little while.

She can tackle hills up to 45%.

Standing guard. When Toadi is on her charger she will be able to see intruders with the night vision camera. When an intruder (whether human, feline or other) is spotted, Toadi will send you a picture of the intruder to your phone. In a free future update she will also be able to patrol your yard and guard an area.

Easy to Install and Use

On the first day of installation, Toadi discovers what your yard looks like and creates a map of it. Thanks to this map, she can navigate in a smart & efficient way without the help of anyone or anything.

Local Production

The team 3D prints, assemble and test their Toadi robots locally to you. The team will have production facilities in each country of sale, because they want to support your local economy. Also they do not want to harm the environment by shipping Toadi robots around the world.

Her shell is completely printed out of corn starch.
