Nothing is better

NO boundary wire

For nearly 30 years, the only way to keep a robot mower inside its working area was with a powered wire

NO beacons

This positioning method requires installing at least three beacons on your property.

NO antenna

Conventional RTK systems work with an antenna installed on your roof or lawn.

Real Time Kinematic at your service

RTK is a state-of-the-art geo-positioning technique that enhances the precision of position data derived from satellite-based positioning systems.

How it works

Your mower

Available for lawns from 600 to 24,000 square meters, there’s a Kress RTKn model for you.

The benefits of daily mowing

Our network

Each antenna of our exclusive network covers any number of lawns within an up to 60 km radius area.

Your best turf ever

Daily mowing encourages robust root systems and reduces plant stress, making the difference between a just good-looking lawn and one that’s healthy and lush.

Kress blades' precise cuts produce ultra-fine clippings that decompose quickly, returning essential nutrients to the soil and reducing the need for fertilizers. This natural process improves soil structure, increasing water infiltration and retention.

For very large areas where heavy lawn tractors and zero-turn mowers are used, the lightweight design of Kress autonomous mowers minimizes soil compaction. This preserves the soil’s ability to absorb and retain water and nutrients, roots can breathe and grow deeper, boosting the lawn’s resilience to environmental stresses.

Kress RTKn precision mowing promotes a denser, healthier grass canopy, naturally contrasting weeds propagation and diminishing the reliance on chemical herbicides.

Daily fresh-cut stripes: your lawn’s new signature

Kress RTKn mowers follow a parallel line pattern. The result? Beautifully aligned stripes that make your lawn a neighbourhood showpiece. Every single day.

Mowing efficiency, redefined

Kress systematic cutting in parallel lines allows a single mower to manage up to 24,000 m2. Not enough? Kress robot mowers are also designed to operate in fleets.

Master of complexity

Guided by satellites, Kress robot mowers excel at navigating complex landscapes and confidently follow even the most tortuous paths from one turf area to another.

Neighbour’s grass always greener? Not anymore

Turf experts agree: frequent mowing is the most crucial step for improving your lawn’s health and visual charm. Don’t have time? Kress does it daily.

Greener landscapes

Kress robotic mowers significantly lower the carbon footprint of any property, from private homes to commercial facilities, fostering greener and more enjoyable living and working environments.

Zero emissions

No polluting exhaust fumes, no emission of greenhouse gases.

Quiet operation

Hotels can groom their lawns overnight without disturbing a single dream.

Operational savings

No labour cost, negligible impact on your energy bill, minimal maintenance expense as compared to petrol mowers.

Guided by satellites, precision perfected

Kress’s exclusive network of base station antennas delivers accurate correction data to each individual mower, ensuring pinpoint accuracy for every blade of grass.

What if there’s poor satellite signal?

If satellite signals are obstructed by buildings or trees, Kress mowers switch to inertial navigation and odometry to maintain accurate routing, until a clear satellite connection is available again.

Inertial navigation

An inertial navigation system is typically formed of three orthogonal accelerometers and three orthogonal gyroscopes that measure tri-axial linear acceleration and angular velocity, respectively.

Inertial navigation, or dead reckoning, is based on motion-sensing devices connected to a computer that constantly computes the position, velocity and orientation of a moving object. For moving objects that rely on external references, e.g. satellite navigation or computer-vision navigation, inertial navigation is used when such external references are temporarily unavailable. Inertial navigation is subject to cumulative errors. Accuracy depends on the precision of its motion-sensing devices and, most importantly, on the algorithm that computes data.

Did you know?

While today we think of dead reckoning in terms of satellite navigation, this term has been around since at least 1613, as recorded in the Oxford English Dictionary. Historically, dead reckoning was a fundamental technique in marine navigation, used to estimate a ship’s position by advancing a known position using estimations of speed and course. Navigators employed clever devices like the ‘chip log’ to gauge a vessel’s speed through the water.
