Recently, the robotic lawn mower produced by the SUMEC Group Corporation passed TÜV Rheinland’s product certification testing and has been awarded the first GS certificate in the world for its product category.

The robotic lawn mower is a new product in the gardening tools industry. It represents the industry’s development direction and the comprehensive R&D strength of its enterprises. The product involves an integration of software, electronics, mechanics, and electrical science. Completely different from traditional lawn mowers, the automatic intelligent lawn mower is operated by computer-controlled technology. The machine is based on electronic technology and is integrated with mechanical and electrical technology.

SUMEC started to develop robotic lawn mowers in 2010. After 3 years of research and development, the company achieved success in developing its first batch of prototype machines and submitted them to TÜV Rheinland for product certification in July, 2012. On April 22, 2013, the product passed the first GS certification testing in the world for robotic lawn mowers. The testing includes not only the traditional tests of Machinery Directive, Low Voltage Directive, EMC Directive, and Noise Directive, but also a Functional Safety Assessment. It is worth noting that there is only a few enterprises in the industry which are capable of manufacturing a certifiable functional safety design. SUMEC has spent over 3 years catching up with the advanced technology of fellow overseas companies that have been developing products for nearly 2 decades, and now has become one of the leading domestic enterprises in this field.

At present, small batch production of the product has finished and it has been delivered to global customers for product testing. During this time, there have been a growing number of customers who have asked to discuss regional exclusive distributorship. The R&D, manufacturing, and sales teams of the corporation are doing their best to make necessary final preparations before launching the product, and aim at making the product a new business growth point.
