In actuality, Roombas make a series of sounds to communicate the start and end of their cleaning cycles, as well as communicating success, failure and repairs required. None of these sounds are human (taking the form of beeps instead).

The robotics primer

Creator: Maja J. Matarić | Technology & Engineering - 2007-09-30

Roomba users already refuse to have their Roombas replaced when they need repair , insisting on getting the same one back. What happens when the robot is much more interesting, intelligent, and engaging than the Roomba?

Publisher: Mit Pr

About this book
The Robotics Primer offers a broadly accessible introduction to robotics for students at pre-university and university levels, robot hobbyists, and anyone interested in this burgeoning field. The text takes the reader from the most basic concepts (including perception and movement) to the most novel and sophisticated applications and topics (humanoids, shape-shifting robots, space robotics), with an emphasis on what it takes to create autonomous intelligent robot behavior. The core concepts of robotics are carried through from fundamental definitions to more complex explanations, all presented in an engaging, conversational style that will appeal to readers of different backgrounds. The Robotics Primer covers such topics as the definition of robotics, the history of robotics ("Where do Robots Come From?"), robot components, locomotion, manipulation, sensors, control, control architectures, representation, behavior ("Making Your Robot Behave"), navigation, group robotics, learning, and the future of robotics (and its ethical implications). To encourage further engagement, experimentation, and course and lesson design, The Robotics Primer is accompanied by a free robot programming exercise workbook that implements many of the ideas on the book on iRobot platforms. The Robotics Primer is unique as a principled, pedagogical treatment of the topic that is accessible to a broad audience; the only prerequisites are curiosity and attention. It can be used effectively in an educational setting or more informally for self-instruction. The Robotics Primer is a springboard for readers of all backgrounds--including students taking robotics as an elective outside the major, graduate students preparing to specialize in robotics, and K-12 teachers who bring robotics into their classrooms.Maja J Mataric [acute accent over c] is Professor of Computer Science and Neuroscience and Director of the Center for Robotics and Embedded Systems at the University of Southern California, where she is also Codirector of the Robotics Research Lab and Senior Associate Dean for research in the Viterbi School of Engineering.

About this book
The philosophy of cognitive science is concerned with fundamental philosophical and theoretical questions connected to the sciences of the mind. How does the brain give rise to conscious experience? Does speaking a language change how we think? Is a genuinely intelligent computer possible? What features of the mind are innate? Advances in cognitive science have given philosophers important tools for addressing these sorts of questions; and cognitive scientists have, in turn, found themselves drawing upon insights from philosophy-insights that have often taken their research in novel directions. The Oxford Handbook of Philosophy of Cognitive Science brings together twenty-one newly commissioned chapters by leading researchers in this rich and fast-growing area of philosophy. It is an indispensible resource for anyone who seeks to understand the implications of cognitive science for philosophy, and the role of philosophy within cognitive science.

    Easiest "circle dance" repair!!

    0 5/5 AmazonAddict - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Roomba iRobot 500/600/700 Series Cliff Sensor / Bumper Sensor Assembly (Kitchen) I did state this was the easiest repair for your Roomba doing the 9 beep circle dance. But it is not an easy repair however you attempt to do it. This method is certainly easier than trying to repair the bumper sensors by replacing the transmitter chip. CaSino 187 delivers what is promised...the bumper sensor/cliff sensor assembly. No instructions are included. But there is plenty of on-line help. http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&v=x25YlTMeEHM&feature=fvwp is an easy to follow video of disassembling / reassembling the Roomba. Watch this as you go (use the "pause" button frequently), take your time and you can repair your Roomba. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 20, 2013

    Simple, Cost-effective Fix

    0 5/5 Thomas P Booth - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Roomba iRobot 500/600/700 Series Cliff Sensor / Bumper Sensor Assembly (Kitchen) I ordered this part because my 500-series roomba started doing the infamous "Circle dance". I had shopped around for other solutions that required soldering the new bumper sensors in and at a much higher price point. Installing this new assembly did the trick and my second-hand Roomba is now happily doing whatever I bid it to do.This upgrade is definitely not for the faint-of-heart. To successfully get the bumper assembly installed, you will need to take 90% of your Roomba apart, at about 20-30 screws to remove / replace during the entire process. All-in-all, I needed about an hour and a half to get everything done. If your moderately handy, then a quick google search: "roomba bumper sensor repair" will yield the instructions you need to get the job done. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 19, 2012

    Worth it just for the brush cleaner

    This set isn't cheap, but it's worth it. I've got a Roomba 565, which I usually love, but the amount of cleaning the device itself requires is sometimes frustrating. 'Course, if I didn't have 4 cats, it might be less... ;) This set helps releve that frustration somewhat. This set comes with 3 filters that are basically identical to what came with the Roomba itself, plus one of the little spinning brushes that helps pull stuff out from corners and the wall (interestingly, with only 3 brushes to it instead of the 5 or 6 the original had), plus a beater bar and brush set. But the real gem here is the little red plastic brush cleaner. I don't know if this ships with the newer Roombas or not, but it should - this little thing is great. What you do with it is run the large brush through it and it strips all the fur, string, threads, etc. that get caught in the brush out and allows them to be thrown away all in one clump. No more picking all that stuff out of the brush by hand! Faster,... 5/5 Jay Brandt - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    filters do not fit a 560

This review is from: iRobot Roomba 500 Series Replenishment Kit For Red and Green Cleaning Heads (Kitchen) Everything in the box fits my Roomba 560 except the yellow filters.

    Works as described - 550 Roomba

    I'm a very satisfied customer! I just finished the installation and it worked, so I need to do this review ASAP. Great detailed instructions on the dealer's site. Transistors and Emitters are clearly labeled. I printed the instructions/pictures on the site as reference before I started.I did not need to remove all the wiring's on the bottom of the motherboard. I lifted it forward then slide it back just enough to expose the 2 sensors held by 2 screws /each.Soldering is the easiest part (I thought it will be the hardest). While holding/puling the transistors I heated up the 2 bottom solder dots and it came off easy (Make sure the tip of the solder is clean to suck the old lead). The long pins of the new transistors slide smoothly in. I used masking tape to make sure both emitter and transistor are flat to the MB, solder the bottom, then cut the legs off. (Make sure the bulging side of the emitter & transistor are facing each other)I'm so glad I did... 5/5 Joelle - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    0 5/5 Michael D'Ambrosia - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Roomba iRobot 500/600/700 IR Sensor Fix - 9-Beep & Circle Dance Fix! I'd never soldered anything before but found this fix pretty easy. The disassembly of your Roomba takes about 20 minutes. Take your time and watch the YouTube videos or look at the various sites available with step-by-steps. You're paying $8 for about $1 worth of items but I looked at ordering these directly from a parts place and you'd pay around $4 (because they're packaged with another part that isn't needed) plus around $4 for shipping. In the end, it's break even. The item shipped fast and arrived in 2 business days. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 4, 2014

    Triangle Head (4pc Set) by Silverhill Tools

    Bought this for some light use on various toys around the house. It's come in handy more than a few times, and I've had no issues with it. Ergonomics can be kind of a relative thing, but for me they feel natural and comfortable in my hand and the freely spinning heads(on handles) make it easy to use.It says hardened steel tips and I haven't had to put it to the test yet with my few repairs though I do see very light signs of wear/warping around the small sharp edges.With my light use I also can't say how well the metal shaft is attacked into the plastic handle or how long it'll last under heavier torque.Stats:Handles = ~3.5"(o/a length) typical plastic. ~5/8"x~6/8"(LxW) pivoting head. Textured grip visible in pictures.Metal Shaft = 5/8"x1/8"(LxW) with impressed/engraved sizing by tip.TA-18(Red) = .079"(~2mm)TA-20(Blue) = .091"(>2mm)TA-23(Grn) = .106"(~2.5mm)TA-27(Orng) = .126" (~3mm)I like the set, happy with the purchase... 4/5 Just Honest - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Superb laptop! 100/100

    This particular MBP is excellent. I use a Quadcore PC for graphic intensive work and picked up one of these to help with development work - webpages and research. This laptop blows away my Windows Quadcore, totally! It is so speedy. Startup in about 30 seconds, shutdown in 2-4 seconds, resume from sleep in 0-2 seconds. Applications open in seconds and there are no lags, hiccups or awkward moments when you wonder whether your computer is out for tea. OS X is solid with lots of innovations such as quicklook which save heaps of time. PDF files can be viewed instantly. Images can be multi-selected and viewed swiftly or in slideshow mode. Wonderful zooming. With Windows laptops a wireless mouse is an absolute must. I bought a Logitech desktop set in anticipation for using with the MBP, but I use the touchpad 90% of the time. It's so useable and responsive. The screen is gorgeous - yummy good. I like how the Mac OS is so simple and easy to use, plus there are some really good freeware apps... 5/5 M.
