  • Being able to use on of these sensors would be great (so keep it up). But what we really need is to get a hold of Neato Robotics “Revo LDS” sensor (http://www.hizook.com/blog/2009/12/20/ultra-low-cost-laser-rangefinders-actualized-neato-robotics). Just if Sparkfun could contact them and resell their sensor. I talked to Neato at CES this year and it seemed like sharing their sensor was not on their minds at that moment (with the whole getting your company off the ground thing). But maybe Sparkfun could convince them…

  • I cannot wait to make a cheap mapping robot using this sensor. Neato said they would make spare parts available in a few months. (Those wheels look nice too)

  • Seeing that you are a “sensor guy” have you seen anything recently about very cheap laser range finder or lidar. Right now these sensors cost a $1000 and up. It would be amazing for small robotics if we could get a less accurate version for less than $100. I have read articles about how neatorobotics.com has developed such a sensor for their electronic vacuum. I just wish I could buy just the sensor.

No public wish lists :(
