1. A method of mowing multiple areas, the method comprising:

  • training an autonomous lawnmowing robot to mow the multiple areas by generating data indicative of a first boundary of a first of the multiple areas and a second boundary of a second of the multiple areas;

    training the robot to traverse the first of the multiple areas by generating data indicative of a user-selected route through the first of the multiple areas;

    transmitting the data indicative of the route and the data indicative of the first boundary and the second boundary to a mobile computing device to present a representation of the first boundary, the second boundary, and the route on a display of the mobile computing device; and

    initiating a mowing operation in which the robot autonomouslydisables a mowing function,subsequent to disabling the mowing function, travels to the second of the multiple areas by following the route without mowing the first of the multiple areas, andsubsequent to traveling to the second of the multiple areas, activates the mowing function to mow the second of the multiple areas.
