Topic: roomba docking station sensor (Read 917 times) previous topic - next topic


The roomba vacuum cleaner can sense the docking station and reach it following the shortest path.

Does somebody knows what kind of sensor is roomba using?

Here a video of the roomba reaching the docking station.

Thanks for your attention,



They use infrared emitters and detectors to find the way home but also to detect the virtual walls/lighthouses. The little knob in on the collision detector is the detector, the other devices have emitters that look almost identical.
