Precise Path RG3
Precise Path is built on the vision of automation for the outdoors.
Precise Path got its start as IndyRobotics in 2004, and my team is now diligently working towards development of a wide range of robots for use in a variety of outdoor environments and applications. This patented technology will forever change the fundamental ways in which superintendents approach the ongoing maintenance and conditioning of golf courses. Precise Path’s product plans include, a fleet of robotic vehicles designed to tackle every aspect of golf course conditioning and maintenance.
By leveraging patented core technologies, the company is on track to achieve their long-term vision of “automation for the outdoors,” enabling the development of a wide,range of robots for use in a variety of outdoor environments, including golf courses, sports fields, residential homes, corporations and public spaces.
On board, Precise Path’s RG3 is a Local Positioning System (LPS) that provides positioning data within a golf course green at one-tenth, the cost of comparable GPS devices. The LPS utilizes a combination of ultrasonic and infrared communications to precisely locate the position and orientation of the mower on the putting green. This gives the mower the capability to travel in straight lines and along the perimeter of a green without the need for a human operator to guide it. In addition to the precise location information provided by the Precise Path LPS, the RG3 has a built-in laser that can detect and avoid running over any object in its path that might result in damage or a reduced quality of cut to the green.
