Hi! By filling out this survey you will help us to improve the Ardumower. Thank you for your help.
Do you plan to build an Ardumower or did you build one already?
I have built one already
I plan to build one
I'm only interested in robotics, and do not have any ideas yet
It is far too complicated for me
It is too expensive for me
What is the most important reason for you to build an Ardumower?
I like to work with my hands
No throw-away electronics
Sustainable and environmental protection
Is it important to you to develop your own software code for the robot?
Which of these activities is the most fun for you?
Mechanics (mechanical constructions, nuts, bolts)
Elektronics (assembling PCBs, modify)
Software (running code, modify)
What is more important to you, many features or lowest price?
What is more important, an universal robot or a robot for the sole task of mowing?
sole task of mowing robot
Should everything be as modular as possible (more expensive) or everything be on one PCB (cheaper)
Modular system (universal/more expensive)
Everthing on one PCB (cheaper)
Do you prefer assembling the PCB yourself (cheaper), or purchasing maximum pre-assembled (more expensive)
assembling myself (soldering)
Would you like to purchase pre-assembled robots (more expensive), or do you like to assemble everything yourself?
Pre-assembled (more expensive)
How would you describe your activities in the Ardumower forum?
Passive (I'm reading)
Active (I'm reading and posting comments)
What type of assembling manual do you prefer?
Web site (Wiki)
What type of case do you prefer?
Current Ardumower case
Thermoforming case like commercial robots (may be more expensive)
What type of user-interface do your prefer?
Web browser (PC/Smart tablet)
Display on the robot
What type of connection do you prefer?
Bluetooth (short distances)
WIFI (wireless LAN)
Custom wirless module (e.g. 433 Mhz)
What additional sensor should the robot have?
Nothing else (Current sensors are sufficient)
What technique should the robot use for its localization and navigation?
Perimeter wire loop
Custom GPS system using multiple beacons around the lawn
What microcontroller platform should be used in the future?
Arduino (Due/Otto etc.)
I have no idea
What aspect of the current Ardumower should be improved strongly?
Mowing behavior and pattern
Case look (visible chassis part)
Chassis (unvisible chassis part)
nothing (everything is perfect)
Do you like permanent improvements and extensions, or do you prefer a robot that is complete in it's basic configuration?
I like a basic robot and no future extensions or improvements
Future improvements and extensions are important to me
Would you be interested in another DIY robotics project (after the lawn robot)?
No interest in other robots
Other robot type:
