Roomba 4000 Series Teardown - HACK A WEEK

I still want a Roomba to Clean my Floors for me! But, this sound like fun too:)


Roomba 4000 Series Teardown

The iRobot Roomba is a great robotic device for hardware hackers and robot builders.
They can be found on Ebay for as little as $20 with and without batteries. The battery pack seems to be the main reason they get sold because most users just don’t want to bother replacing the battery, which costs about $45 on Ebay. Other items that cause problems are dirty wheel sensors, a seized cleaning brush motor and an occasional broken drive belt. Most of these problems aren’t a concern to hardware hackers.
