About this book
FSR, the 'International Conference on Field and Service Robotics', is a robotics Symposium which has established over the past ten years the latest research and practical results towards the use of field and service robotics in the community with particular focus on proven technology. The first meeting was held in Canberra, Australia, in 1997. Since then the meeting has been held every two years in the pattern Asia, America, Europe. This books presents the results of the sixth edition of "Field and Service Robotics" FSR03, held in Chamonix, France, on 9th - 12th July 2003. The conference provided a forum for researchers, professionals and robot manufacturers to exchange up-to-date technical knowledge and experience. Field robots are non-factory robots, typically mobile, that operate in complex, and dynamic environments: on the ground (of Earth or planets), under the ground, underwater, in the air or in space. Service robots are those that work closely with humans to help them with their lives. This book offers a collection of a broad range of topics including: Underwater Robots and Systems, Autonomous Navigation for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, Simultaneous Localization and Mapping, Climbing Robotics, Sensor Fusion.

    Fantastic cleaning robot!

    I must say, I'm impressed with the mapping system on this little guy. I have a very large (20'X20') open living room/kitchen area giving plenty of obstacles to confuse it. There's a staircase (which it deftly avoids), an island, a kitchen table with chairs, a couch and a number of tables for it to go under, an area rug and a piece of curved beveled glass on the floor that serves as a stand for a fireplace (which it surprisingly does not ride up on). Also, the room is overall "U" shaped with several entryways. This is the only robotic cleaner that has been able to figure this room out in its entirety. Other things to note is the room has a large fan and high, sloped ceilings and it can still find it's way.My Roomba did terribly. It would get stuck in one section, the Neato XV was OK but would miss some parts. This thing does a great job of freshening up the floor and getting at just about everything due to it's small size!One thing I did not know is the Mint... 5/5 Ryan Mckenney - See all my reviews, September 9, 2010

    Mint v Roomba: Which is hte Better Sucker

    The short version, for those reading many reviews quickly is this; the Mint has many advantages over the Roomba on a feature for feature basis. But at the end of the day, the Roomba is the better product and picked up a LOT more pet hair.Here's the longer version with the gory details:Both of these are great innovations. True, the Mint is far quieter, cheaper and cooler looking than the Roomba. It is also easier/cheaper to maintain. But the Roomba gets more dust off the floor, despite the fact that the Mint can get under places Roomba can not, and Roomba returns to its base for a re-charge on it's own, as needed. The Mint just dies in place.The guy on here who's review said that he sent his Roomba on a mission and then sent the Mint after it to discover dirt the Roomba missed, would have had the same result if he performed the experiment in reverse. I know b/c I did just that. these two devices clean differently, so any comparison is useless... 2/5 dusthater - See all my reviews This review is from: Mint Automatic Hard Floor Cleaner, 4200 (Kitchen) The short version, for those reading many reviews quickly is this; the Mint has many advantages over the Roomba on a feature for feature basis.

    Beware False Hopes

    First: notice the 5-star rating that I have given this.I agree with all of the 5-star reviewers: this product is worth the price (have had it about 6 weeks now). I have used it on vinyl (Congoleum/linoleum) floors, tile floors and wooden floors. It works well on all of them. Time will tell more.However, rather than repeat what others have said, I will describe some aspects that might disappoint you when/if you buy it, but these do not outweigh the benefits.- This does NOT do a deep clean. That takes elbow grease and this, naturally, is not heavy enough to scrub that well (you wouldn't want it to be that heavy). You will have to do a deep clean first. The Mint will then maintain that clean floor. I use it about once a week.- The designers did a generally good job, except for the week when they all took vacation at once and let the janitor decide where to put the charging port.

    Not bad on my linoleum & hardwood floors.

    It meets the 80/20 rule. It does 80% of the work that you would do if you did a thorough, good clean yourself. However, I usually don't do a thorough good clean myself on mopping floors since I left the navy.obviously, make sure that your floor is swept before starting Scooba. (I use my Roomba since I am doubly lazy..) Scooba won't get into the corners, but neither do I when I mop. The point is.. I don't like mopping. Neither does my wife. The hardwood floors never get mopped. I have a dog & 2 cats. Thus, the kitchen floor always looks like &*$(#! most of the time. Now it doesn't. It looks great. I'd suggest it for people that hate mopping & just want someone (or thing) to do it..The first time I had scooba clean, it ran, but no water came out, and ittold me to check the tank, so i fiddled with it (pulled it apart & put it together again) and it worked. perhaps I didn't put the little rubber tube in right or didn't snap things together right the... 4/5 Kevin Gabbert (Salem, OR) - See all my reviews, September 24, 2006

    Very pleased with robot and customer service

    I was impressed with the ease in which the Scooba operates. Every part is clearly marked on the machine and the directions are uncomplicated. The first time I used my Scooba, it started out working fine. But then the "Check Tank" light came on without any apparent reason. I opened and closed the tank, making sure it was securely locked and it started right up again. I left the room and, when I returned after the cycle was completed, the floor was VERY wet. When I emptied the dirty tank, there was barely any water in it! It was obvious that the vaccum system that squeeges the floor and sucks the dirty water back into the machine wasn't working properly. I called Customer Service and they were very helpful and immediately sent out a replacement part at no charge to me.Actually, it turned out that the machine was working fine.

    Absolutely Worth the Money

    I have two children (1 and 10 year old boys) and three large dogs (great dane, mastiff, and shar pei), needless to say keeping floors clean is a struggle. I also happen to have an obsession with clean floors.Every floor in my home is hardwood. I run it twice a day (once per level) and now all of my belongings are no longer covered in dog hair and I can walk around in bare feet without feeling yucky. If it only went up and down steps it would be perfect!Another bonus side effect is that, when you run it every day, it keeps all that dust and dirt from just floating around your house and clinging to other stuff so I have to clean less often in general.I suppose if I got out a bucket, sponge and set of knee pads I could do a better job but really who needs that in thier life?

    Bathroom Scooba

    I bought this robotic floor washer because I had just bought a Roomba 770 robotic vacuum and was very happy with it. Also because it matches the Roomba's styling, which is modern and elegant. The Scooba 230 was on sale for $299 from $349. At the time I was not aware I could get one from irobot.com for $299 including the essentials kit. This bundle came with one virtual wall, one battery, one charger, a storage base, and a single brush/squeegee plate.It took 15 hours to charge the battery for the first time. Very frustrating when all you want to do is play with your new toy/...appliance? It took about 8 hours to charge after using it. Not good if you want to clean another room or add cleaning time. If a fast charger was available I would definitely buy one, but one does not exist yet.

Our house isn't huge and I'd estimate all together the non-carpeted areas total around 700 square feet.

    Fun product, has limitations.

    It does a nice job mopping flat sealed surfaces, as long as you "scooba-proof" the room first. I did find that you can't let it roam around rooms as large as those you can let the Roomba go in, as Scooba does need to go over the same spot a few times to really get it clean, and also as the cycle is only 45 minutes. I also found that it can be much more temperamental than I expected, stopping mid-clean because it got stuck in a transition area (like between tile and wood), stuck on a flat rug it didn't detect, didn't like the amount of cleaner you put in, or needs the dirty water and filter's checked. I've also found it doesn't always obey the virtual walls. Unlike the Roomba, there is no mechanism for it to clean corners, so those you have to manually mop. It sucks up most of the water, leaving the floor in a damp-dry state - I read people saying the floor is dry, but that has never been the case with mine.

    junior is awesome

    I have cared for my pool the cheap way for 12 years (no service company). I have intermittently used a free creepy crawler or a polaris with fair results and lots of messing with/untalnging those cleaners. So I had decided this year I was going to treat myself.My dad had an aquabot for 5 or 6 years, so I was familiar with the product. I favored the junior model as it seemed less of everything: less cost, less features to break and less weight. (Junior is about half the weight of the regular aquabot).My pool is 18x32 with steps and AQJ cleans it 95% perfectly. I do have to hit the steps and a couple of tight corners, but overall my brush time is 10% of what it was, and I will never net or vacuum again. My filter time is down by about 1/3. I am hopeful that backwashing will be decreased as well. I run junior every three or four days as needed.

    Pretty decent. Doesn't climb walls.

    I bought this as my first pool robot after years of cleaning the pool by hand -- a task I liked just about as much as ironing and painting. I never wanted to spend the money on one of these but I finally bit the bullet and did it.The first comment is WOW my pool is so clean! Maybe the claims that they really save you all this money because you can run your filter less are at least partly true.So, why only 3 stars? Well, the product is advertised as being able to climb walls (or was when I bought it). It gets about 1/3 of the way up the wall but that's it. I really wanted it to clean up to the water line. We use this at a second home where we sometimes are gone for some time and return to have to spend a long time cleaning the pool to get it ready and this just didn't do what I thought it would.I returned this item for the reasons above but having now tried a second Aquabot product... 3/5 Gregory P.

    Greatest pool cleaner invention yet!

    This Aquabot Junior pool cleaner is really a true pool cleaner - it cleans the bottom, the walls, and even the steps. It doesn't get hung up in corners or anywhere else in your pool. The filter bag will hold everything from bobby pins, leaves,bugs, algae, and sand - and other undesirable disgusting stuff.Just put it in the pool plug it in and forget it!The only negative comment is that cleaning the filter bag can be somewhat disgusting since the unit picks up just about everything. I turn mine inside out, shake out what I can, and then put the bag on a flat surface and the use a hose to spray away the remainder. This can take a while but remember what you are washing away is what other pool cleaners simply blow back into your pool.The Aquabot Jr. Wall Scrubber Robotic Pool Cleaner pool cleaner cleans so well I no longer have had to vacuum the pool. I'm somewhat handicapped and this thing is the next best thing since the battery powered scooter... 5/5 Amazon Customer - See all my reviews This Aquabot Junior pool cleaner is really a true pool cleaner - it cleans the bottom, the walls, and even the steps.

    Better than Aquabot Turbo T2

    The SmartPool 9i is better than the Aquabot Turbo T2 and the Eco Jet. I have owned them all.This is why I think this:The 9i climbs the wall every time it hits it. The Turbo T2 only once in a while the Eco jet NEVER.Filter bag is larger and though the Aquabot says they have the largest (which they might)the design of the unit doesn't allow you to fill the bag. The motor is in the way.The 9i filter bag is easier to clean, remove, and reinstall. THIS IS A HUGE DIFFERENCEThe 9i comes out of the box ready to use. the Aquabot wants you to figure out how much foam flotation to add so it will climb walls. (never right in different depths.The Aquabot wants you to place it in the pool upside down and get all the air bubbles out. The 9i you just toss it in and it goes.The 9i price is cheaper for comparable product of the Turbo T2.The only negative thing I can say is that the cord is not on a... 5/5 David - See all my reviews This review is from: Smart Pool 9i Robotic Pool Cleaner (Lawn & Patio) The SmartPool 9i is better than the Aquabot Turbo T2 and the Eco Jet.
