Vitirover: Solar-Powered Vineyard Mower


Introducing the Vitirover robot, an eco-friendly solar-powered mower designed specifically for vineyards. This innovative robotic solution not only manages grass height but also serves as a vigilant ecological guardian, monitoring the vineyard’s health and detecting potential risks.


Introducing the Vitirover, a revolutionary solar-powered robotic mower designed to provide a sustainable and efficient solution for maintaining and monitoring vineyards, orchards, and various landscapes. Combining advanced technology with an eco-friendly approach, Vitirover offers an intelligent alternative to traditional methods of landscape maintenance, reducing environmental impact and labor costs. With its innovative design and adaptability to various terrains, Vitirover is poised to change the future of agriculture and landscape management.

Autonomous and Solar-Powered Mowing System

GPS Navigation and Smartphone Control

Vitirover robots utilize multi-constellation GNSS positioning (GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo), inertial motion sensors, and dual RGB cameras for precision autonomous operation. This advanced tech enables Vitirover robots to accurately map environments, optimize navigation paths, avoid obstacles within 1cm, and provide full coverage of designated mowing areas with minimal human input needed. The cameras also enable remote oversight when required.

Solar-powered Operation: Eco-friendly and Self-sufficient

At the heart of every Vitirover robot is an integrated solar panel that allows for completely self-sufficient operation without any fuel consumption. The onboard solar panel charges the internal battery which powers the robot for up to 6 hours of mowing per day depending on sunlight conditions. For continuous mowing, an optional solar-powered Charging Dock Station can be installed to keep batteries continually topped up.

Compact Size and Lightweight Design

With dimensions of 75cm x 40cm x 30cm (29.5″ x 15.75″ x 11.75″) and weighing just 27kg (59 lbs), Vitirover robots are extremely compact and maneuverable. Their lightweight build allows them to operate on slopes up to 20% grade without sliding or losing traction. The 4-wheel independent drive system maintains optimal contact and control on varied terrain.

Damage Prevention and Soil Protection

Weighing 80% less than standard riding mowers at just 27kg, Vitirover robots prevent harmful soil compaction that occurs over years of heavy machinery use. Their cutting blades automatically reduce speed upon approaching obstacles like trees and vines to prevent infrastructure damage. This allows for mowing safely around sensitive assets.

Versatile and Expandable Functionality

Chemical-Free Weed Management

The rotating cutter system of Vitirover robots physically severs weeds at an adjustable height of 2-4 inches for effective vegetation control without chemicals. This eliminates toxic herbicide use and runoff, promoting healthier soils and ecosystems. The robots mow unwanted vegetation as close as 1cm from obstacles.

Smart Fleet Monitoring and Control

Vitirover connects to an intuitive web-based management dashboard for monitoring robots individually or in fleets. It provides live views of battery levels, motor usage, mowing efficiency and other key metrics. Additional safety and security features include remote emergency shutoff, geofencing, antitheft alerts, and remote immobilization.

About Vitirover

Vitirover SAS is a pioneer in designing innovative robotic solutions for vineyards. The company has developed the Vitirover robot, an eco-friendly, solar-powered all-terrain mower that effectively manages grass height while replacing traditional weed-killing practices. In addition to its mowing capabilities, the Vitirover robot serves as a vigilant ecological guardian of vineyards, consistently monitoring the health of the ecosystem and detecting potential risks such as diseases, insect invasions, or meteorological stress.

Equipped with state-of-the-art onboard measurement instruments, the Vitirover robot can collect relevant data 24/7, allowing daily and yearly statistical comparisons. This invaluable information enables winegrowers to identify risks or problems early on and take targeted, natural actions at the vine stock level, reducing the need for widespread pesticide-based treatments.


Operating from its headquarters in Saint Emilion, Aquitaine, Vitirover was founded in 2010 and has since been dedicated to robotics, sustainable development, and wine. With a team of 2-10 employees, including part-time roles, the company has established itself as a leader in environmental services within the industry.
