Husqvarna Group is taking legal action against Positec Germany GmbH, claiming that Positec's Worx Landroid robotic lawn mower infringes two Husqvarna patents for robotic mower technology.

"We have had tremendous success with the Automower robotic mower, and welcome that other manufacturers help us to grow this market," said Hans Linnarson, CEO of Husqvarna Group. "However, all manufacturers must do their own engineering work and not just copy existing solutions. We have invested a lot of hard work and resources and will actively defend our technology against infringers. This means using all available legal remedies against manufacturers and resellers who are infringing our intellectual property, where appropriate."

Husqvarna engineered robotic lawn mowers in 1995 and since then has produced almost 200,000 robotic mowers. The company is now offering its third generation of mowers in the Husqvarna Automower and Gardena R40Li lines.
