HI All,

Here is the latest update with lots of new photos of our VacBot project. Take note on our adjustable bumper design we are working on:

The bot is now able to autonomously navigate in the house, but the small rollers just behind the brushes are catching on things occasionally. Left to do is to put on the rear bumper and finish up the FSM in the programming to make it clean in patterns for best results. The FSM will include a spiral state, where it makes the robot move in an increasingly large spiral pattern every five minutes or so until it hits something, then go random again. this should cover the most room in a minimum amount of time.
