roomba modification

Post by plykos » Wed Jun 08, 2005 10:01 am

I am trying to connect with parties who are adapting a (Red or Discoverer) Roomba to become an autonomous robotic platform. The idea is to be able to add functionalities to the unit (with brushes removed).

roomba sensor

i mounted this on my roomba, along with the irobot programming dongle, and basic II stamp
It has really expanded the roomba's sensing capabilities
