News - Neato Robotics XV-11 Tear…
about 10 years ago
Video showing live data processing and the python code used.<br />
Check out this data dump and explanation. Significantly different from what was seen at Sparkfun.<br />
Pics of test setup and Terminal interface into the XV-11 LIDAR unit.<br />
Nevermind, I think I can see the slip-ring in one of the pictures.
From the pictures of the turret on Robotshop and here it does not look capable of spinning in one direction forever. Are the 4 wires coming off of the spinning mechanism just going through the center and out the bottom?<br />
Have you seen the turret spin in one direction continuously? The white paper on this device talks about a low range RF link to transfer data but I would say due to cost (and the extra complexity in the prototype pictured) they dropped that idea and possibly decided to rotate the turret one way 360 degrees and back the other way 360 degrees. Maybe this is data in the stream that is transmitted.
No public wish lists :(
