Husqvarna’s robotic lawnmowers congratulate the Mars Rover Curiosity

Il Mars Rover Curiosity celebrates 10 years on Mars.
An important event that the NASA rover will not celebrate.
In fact, initially Curiosity was programmed to sing Happy Birthday to itself, which it did in 2013 to celebrate the first anniversary on the red planet. But then he stopped. Or rather, NASA has decided to stop this practice to save on batteries.
This is how the subsequent birthdays of this Mars Rover went unnoticed.
We think about remedying Husqvarnacon an update dedicated to 100,000 Automower models 405X, 415X and 435X AWD to sing “happy birthday” to Curiosity.

“We are a great group of tech geeks, engineers who work at Husqvarna and sometimes test new technologies, they are our passion. Having, on Automower® robotic lawnmowers, the alarm module we started playing with it to see if we could do something fun. In the meantime, we have learned of the upcoming birthday of the Mars rover. And from there the idea was born. For us this is a way to pay tribute to NASA’s great engineering work by having our robotic lawnmowers celebrate a robot companion. Why shouldn’t anyone sing Happy Birthday to themselves, right? ”He commented Björn MannefredRobotics Software Manager di Husqvarna.

But how does it work? The technology is based on the existing alarm signal on the Automower robotic lawnmower associated with the integration platform IFTTT.

“For a long time we have built an infrastructure where different modules can be added and combined to our robotic lawnmowers to create new and innovative solutions for our customers. By the time we learned of Curiosity’s birthday, all the building blocks were already there. And because our robots on Earth are so loved and are so much a part of family life, we thought about extending that love into space, “he said. Linda Lindqvist, Product Manager Robotics di Husqvarna.

Do you want to participate? Know that it is very easy.
Owners of Husqvarna mowers will be notified of the update via the Husqvarna Automower Connect app. Once the update has been carried out, the Automower will automatically start singing at 12:00, 15:00 and 18:00 (local time) on August 5thin homage to the 10th anniversary of Curiosity on Mars.

After Mars Curiosity Rover’s birthday, Husqvarna will make the Happy Birthday song permanently available to owners of the three Automower models from the beginning of September, so as to bring some joy to family birthdays too.
