Hi everyone,

Made more progress on VacBot 1 last night, after a week of shooting the stars, I am now back to robotics in the evening because of the full moon. The bumper on this thing is unlike anything Ive ever built before. Since I am only relying on bumpers for navigation, and not IR or Sonar, They have to be rugged, and dependable. I made a metal frame work, and it hangs with rubber pads on four posts. The idea is by adjusting the bumpers, or using different materials I can get any pressure I want to activate the reed switches. Ill post some imags of this interesting concept - the adjustable bumper - comming soon!
