Package Summary

Useful tools for the Roomba robots used at the LSE including popular tf setups, Stage world files and 2D navigation parameters and example launch files for the real and simulated robots.

The LSE Roombas

The Roomba is used daily for research at the LSE, ISR University of Coimbra. These robots are mainly used for research on odor related algorithms for single and multiple robots as well as swarming.

The LSE Roomba is composed by a standard Roomba 530, 555 or 560, a Netbook with ROS, an eNose connected to the Netbook over an Arduino and a sensor for obstacle avoidance, usually an Hokuyo LRF.
