About Robin Autopilot

Who Are We

Launched in 2017, our founders wanted to offer a smarter lawn care experience — for people and the environment. So they developed the first-of-its-kind, emissions-free robotic mowing service.

Since then, we’ve expanded throughout the U.S. to provide more and more customers with our innovative service and unique subscription-based model.

Our Mission

The Robin Autopilot mission is to make lawn care eco-friendly and reliable while improving the health and appearance of commercial and consumer lawns using the power of autonomous lawnmowers.

By enabling its member companies to provide a 5-star customer experience and an innovative alternative to their traditional lawncare , we’re empowering businesses powered by Robin to become more profitable, competitive and sustainable in the long term.

Our Model

We offer subscribers a customized subscription-based platform for running a robot service business. Based on their subscription level, we’ll provide tiered access to proprietary products (software, operating manual, robotic door for homes with fences, and more) and non-proprietary products (marketing program, training and support, financing for robots and doors). It’s everything you need to effectively manage this innovative service.
