  • Floor vacuum cleaner robot - controlled by Arduino with motor shield

    depends on what you want to do as far as solve

    that would be like giving away a patent that doesnt exist yet. it would be worth millions.

    yes the new roomba's have a usb port. the problem is it runs on Lisp programming lingo and it will be pure coding from then on in..........UNLESS YOU SWITCH TO GCODE AND TRANSLATE RESULTANT MOVEMENTS FROM CNC MACHINE CODE (which is what modern machine tools i.e. lathes, mills, etc. operate to surprisingly high accuracies.) back to Lisp.......or another way, it depends on the creator and programming time constraints. Then there's mapping which could be done in auto cad 360 or Solidworks then transferred to GCODE then run. Lidar is now available in chip form at low cost and energy consumption to realign due to differential drag in the wheels throwing it off course. The person that cracks the reorientation of a disoriented path wins the big brass ring.

Perhaps a consortium is in order, a proposal to the big guys like darpa, who makes the damn thing in the first place, google with their big pockets , or a successful crowdfunding option is in order as the scope of the project balloons very fast once you get a handle on the punch list of problems to be solved.
