Husqvarna and Sogeti set up joint Robotic Development Center in Mumbai

Husqvarna is the market leader in robotic lawn mowers and this latest collaboration with Sogeti will help to accelerate time to market and new advancements in smart products.

Stockholm, Paris, November 8 – Sogeti today announced that it will set up a joint Development Center for robotic research and development (R&D) in Mumbai with Husqvarna Group, a leading producer of outdoor power products for forest, park and garden care, to further develop its robotic lawn mower technology.

Bringing digitalization to life and providing a great connected customer experience are key to Husqvarna’s product strategy. Sogeti has been working with Husqvarna for over four years and, in 2015, it started a digital solution service center from Mumbai. The Husqvarna Automower® Connect is just one of a number of digital innovations created by Husqvarna, supported by Sogeti’s local team in Mumbai taking a DevOps approach. It enables users to control, re-program and position (using Google Maps) Husqvarna’s robotic lawn mowers via a mobile app.

As the market leader in robotic lawn mowers, Husqvarna’s new R&D partnership with Sogeti will now help to create greater opportunities for broader collaboration. The new center draws on the specific industry expertise of Husqvarna coupled with Sogeti’s exceptional embedded engineering talent. Together, they will research and develop the next generation of robotic lawn mowers – and ultimately other outdoor power products – utilizing new and emerging Internet of Things (IoT) capabilities. The collaboration will enable Husqvarna to speed up time to market of new robotics-led products at scale.

Lars Roos Global R&D Director Robotics, Husqvarna said, “Our ability to innovate and stay ahead of industry trends is critical for our ambition to remain in front as the market leader. Working in partnership with Sogeti to drive the R&D underpinning this is a key strategic step for us. We share similar attributes, notably our passion for attracting talented people and to use innovation to create performance and improved results for our clients.

Thobias Dencker, Account Executive, Chief Sales Officer at Sogeti said, “We are in the business of ‘making technology work’, drawing on innovative thinking to rapidly create value for our clients. The new joint development center with Husqvarna, a leader in its field, is a natural fit with our own strategy to focus on helping clients respond to disruption with innovative solutions and expertise.
