Nietje is awesome!
Nietje is a Neato Botvac 75 and it vacuums our apartment 🙂
It’s eyes exists of a very cool technology actually! It’s called a “lidar”, and combines the reflection of a laser, a photosensitive sensor and time of flight to calculate distance to objects!
If you want you can read about it on following websites:
I recently found a usb port inside the machine! It’s hidden next to the on/off button, behind the dust bin, behind a rubber plug! And there it is: a microusb-port! Nice 🙂
Plugged it in, but Windows couldn’t find a driver (vid_2108&pid_780c).
To get passed that, you’re going to need the official driver included in the update package.
And thanks to a guy called heX, we can control the robot 🙂 jeeeehaaaa
