About this book
The Ubiquitous Computing conference series provides the premier forum in which to present original research results in all areas relating to the design, implementation, app- cation and evaluation of ubiquitous computing technologies. It is a well-established platform to introduce and discuss research that enables new capabilities, appropriate security and privacy, improved user experiences and simplified and powerful devel- ment and deployment practices. These proceedings contain the papers presented at the Ninth International Conf- ence on Ubiquitous Computing (UbiComp 2007) in Innsbruck, Austria, in September 2007. Our call for papers resulted in 150 submissions, each of which was assigned to a primary and a secondary member of our Program Committee. Every primary and secondary member was responsible for assigning one or more additional qualified reviewers with specific expertise in the field. After double-blind reviews and an online discussion, we had a two-day face-to-face meeting with 38 of the 40 Program C- mittee members attending the PC meeting held just before the Pervasive 2007 conf- ence in Toronto, Canada, in May 2007. We are grateful to Khai Truong , Jeremy Knight and Alex Varshavsky of the University of Toronto for providing facilities and support for this meeting. At the PC meeting, about 80 of the submissions were in- vidually and extensively discussed in one of the three subgroups sensors, experiences and systems as well as in the calibration and decision panels. The PC finally selected 29 papers for publication in these proceedings.

    Simple, Cost-effective Fix

    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.

    just perfect

    My roomba 530 started doing the backwards circle dance and goes back a step one way and tries to take another step another way backwards as if it thinks it is hitting something in the front... of course, there was nothing physically there for it to act that way.After researching online it appears that it is a fairly common issue and something easily resolved by replacing the bumper sensors (or if you are mechanically savvy and can soder then you can supposedly fix it by sodering and not neccessarily replacing). Well, I may be pretty handy but never soddered anything in my life so I got these replacement parts instead.I was worried at first because they came in the grey bubble packaging via usps. When i opened the ba, I found these sensors in a torn white paper (not even tissue paper, it was the regular printable paper we typically use). I wasn't sure if these really are working and I had no way of finding out without it being in my roomba.Also, there were no... 5/5 Mother of 2 (AZ) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Fixed!!

    After reading everyone's reviews, I was confident this was going to fix our 560's 9 beep/ circle dance problem. I was a little unsure of my abilities to do the repair job myself, however. I'd say I'm tech-savvy, but not mechanically tech-savvy (if that makes any sense). I'd never worked with the internal components of any electrical device in the past, and I was nervous about breaking something on the motherboard. After watching the video that someone on here linked to (THANK YOU, by the way!), I felt it was something I could handle if I took my time. I set out a bunch of ramekins for screws and labeled each dish as I went along. This seemed to help keep things in order. After about an hour and 45 minutes, Roomba was back together. I nervously pushed the "Clean" button and could not stop smiling when I saw it take off through the room. (Might have even done a little happy dance...)So happy to have Roomba back! :)FYI: The package took quite some time... 5/5 schwan2 (Boston, MA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
