Roomblock: Autonomous Robot using Roomba, Raspberry Pi, and RPLIDAR(1)

自律移動のキーパーツ、LIDAR

We are using a robot named “Roomblock” as a material of ROS workshop. Roomba is wonderful not only for room cleaning, but also for learning robotics. Roomba has an serial port to communicate with PC, and of course, ROS system.

You can convince your family to buy a Roomba, of course for cleaning :-)

The first Roomba I bought in 2007, broken now :-(

We share how to build Roomblock at Instructables. Please try it at your own risk.
