ROOMBA ROBOT

The roomba series of robots were designed by iRobot Corporation, primarily for vacuum cleaning and floor washing purposes. However, they are excellent and inexpensive tools to study robotics.

In Player/Stage installation files, one can find the irobot.inc file at; Stage-3.2.2-Source/worlds/irobot.inc

Making the irobot.inc file work with the sick laser one can get simple simulations.
