UMSL DEI Accelerator cohort company, Hire Henry, seem to have achieved one of their stated goals of the program: to launch a fully functional prototype and conduct beta tests. Co-founder, George Holmes, PhD announced on LinkedIn that their heavy duty robotic lawnmower is going to tested at City of Sugar Lands airport in Texas.

“This is another big step in our progress developing commercial robotic mowers – the data collected in this pilot will provide invaluable insights in developing the next version of our product,” said Holmes, when he shared the news. The lawncare robotics company has been enjoying significant momentum of late and recently completed the R!oT โ€œinternet of thingsโ€ accelerator in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Personally, I’d love to see “Henry” (presumably the name of the Robot Lawnmower?) doing its thing in Forest Park. Can you think of any great lawns that might be up for beta-testing? Jump on social media to suggest their next project!
