Electric Sheep Robotics Introduces Dexter Robot

Electric Sheep Robotics has announced the availability of its Dexter robot. Dexter is designed to take existing commercial lawn mowers, gas as well as electric, and convert them into autonomous vehicles.

The company also has announced financing in the amount of $21.5 million, led by Tiger Global; to date, the company reports, it has raised $25.7 million. Electric Sheep notes that it will use the funds to fuel expansion across all departments in order to meet growing customer demand. The company currently has contracts with 30 customers across the U.S.

“Automation of the $115 billion outdoor maintenance market is an enormous opportunity hiding in plain sight,” says Naganand Murty, CEO of Electric Sheep. “Electric Sheep is leading the way with fully autonomous solutions. We are excited to invest and help them grow their leadership position.

“I don’t think people realize that lawns are America’s largest crop,” he continues. “More land and water are dedicated to lawns than to wheat and corn combined, and more than 40 million acres of land in the U.S. has some form of lawn. $20 billion is allocated annually to lawn mowing alone. Solutions such as Electric Sheep’s Dexter robot are helping our customers meet demand and better allocate their already scarce labor pool.”

A San Francisco-based robotics-as-a-service company, Electric Sheep Robotics announced its official launch in August 2021.
