Is Voice Control Coming to Electric Lawn Mowers?
Electric lawn mowers have benefited greatly from recent improvements in battery life and weight, and now Arizton Advisory and Intelligence expects voice interfaces to propel the market even further.
U.S. market growth is expected due to growing adoption of robotic equipment. The research firm noted that the average U.S. consumer today has more than 12 connected devices, and the growth of smart homes will eventually push for the growth of smart garden tools.
Also, the emergence of voice-activated control systems has further added an impetus to market growth, it said, noting that already in March 2018 Husqvarna demonstrated a "Just Ask Alexa" function and future Amazon Alexa features for Husqvarna Automower mowers through its Automower Connect application.
