A robot has been entrusted with cutting grass on the Neris river banks in Vilnius, the city's authorities say.

The half-ton robot mower can cover an area of over 5,000 square metres in an hour and about 40,000 square metres in a day, the equivalent of six football fields.

Moreover, it can work on steep slopes, inclined over 60 degrees, which can be dangerous for human mowers, Vilnius Municipality said in a press release.

The city is also employing a number of drones to monitor the upkeep of existing infrastructure and identify the need for upgrades.

City officials also use drones to find illegal construction and dumping sites, while transport authorities monitor traffic and parking infrastructure.
