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.

    Noisy but useful

    Is it perfect? no. Is it useful? yes.Before I write review for the Scooba, I would like to write a little about my two other robots.My two other robots are Roomba 550 and Neato XV11 from Neato Robotic. I use Roomba to maintain my first floor and Neato to maintain my second floor. They both have strength and work very well for their intended purposes. My first floor is all hardwood and ceramic tiles, and the second floor is all carpet. Since my dog also lives in the first floor, the Roomba works very well for floor with pet hair. Neato is very powerful robotic vacuum (best), it works extremely well for my carpet. I scheduled the Roomba to run the entire floor 4 days a week so the first floor usually clean without much hairs and debris left; I know that the main function of the Scooba is not to clean the debris and dog hair and I don't want to burden it for. It won't work well with very hairy floor.I have around 1400 square foot first floor. I use... 3/5 Jianqiang Zhong "Z Man" (Columbus, OH) - See all my reviews, June 9, 2012

    Okay, but not great and not worth the price.

It's easy to prepare and operate.2. Battery has good charge (good for one large room or one medium and one small room).3. It can use regular old water and vinegar and still clean effectively if you don't use their cleaning solution. That is if you don't mind the smell of vinegar of course.4. The first stage vacuum function is very nice. As long as you don't have large debris on the floor, you don't have to worry about vacuuming first.5.

    A few months ago I called Irobot and told them how utterly sad I was about scooba's overall short lifespan given the great potential the robot offered. A manager got on the phone and offered me another replacement of one of my older models, but weary of the process, I declined. Days later, the manager called me back and asked me to reconsider. I agreed to have them send me a replacement of my old model, no strings attached, no replacement parts returned, no shipping charges, simply a good will measure on thier part.

I wanted one gadget that could do mulitple things & this was the top choice.It works great on tile, wood, & other surfaces.Its very well made- sturdy but not heavyYou can wash the pad up to 100 times before replacing! I just throw in in the wash with detergent and either baking soda or vinegar cleans right up like new. I hang it to air dry and thats it!It catches all the dirt and easily flips over to mop. I use a vinegar/water combo to clean pur floors and this really helps to make them shine!I love it! Will continue to buy ocedar products! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 17, 2013

    I call it Turbo!

    I've had 2 Scoobas before this one, starting with the 5900 series, upgrading to the 300 series and now this one. This is a dramatic departure from what I'm used to in some good ways and some bad. I like it-- but with some caveats. I'm also a devoted Roomba user, currently having a 650. I started way back with the Roomba Red that I bought on Amazon way back on Feb 23, 2007. I've been a long term customer of the robot vacuums.Unpacking the unit, the first thing I noticed was that this design was drastically different than what I've been using for the last several years. It looks like they stopped making a separate body style for the Scoobas, and consolidated on a single design. This one is very much designed just like the Roomba, replacing the dirt bin with the water tank. This also means that cleaning of the Scooba itself is easier, and the brush scrubber area where the scrubbing takes place removes much easier for rinsing than the previous models. This model also has... 4/5 RST10 (USA) - See all my reviews, April 22, 2014

    OMG! Yes, it cleans floors. It's a noisy little beast, but so cool

    So I've had a Mint floor cleaning robot for a long time, which is essentially a very smart Swiffer. I'd been wanting to try one of the newer Roomba style robots and was thrilled to get the opportunity to review this new Scooba 450. I'll go through some things you should consider when buying a floor cleaning robot, and how the Scooba stacks up.1) Is it loud?Yes it is. I mean, not rock concert loud, not even vacuum cleaner loud, but it makes a bit of a ruckus.2) What types of floors does it clean?It mops and vacuums, so pretty much any hard floor. I tried it on a vinyl kitchen floor, a tile bathroom floor, and several hardwood floors. It did a great job on each.3) Does it get stuck a lot?No, and on the rare occasions it did, it signaled to me with a sound, and when I pushed the information button it told me "I'm stuck" in a cute voice.4) How's the battery life?It charges fairly quickly (but do a long charge... 5/5 Bookenator - See all my reviews, April 26, 2014

    Excellent if your room floors are perfectly flat and either 150 or 300 sq/ft

    Edit: I had to remove a star because the Scooba will sometimes end it's cycle under the bed. It's a large bed so it is sometimes very difficult to reach it. I certainly don't start it under the bed so I'm not sure why it ends there. It's a fairly serious design flaw if you have a very large area underneath something that is difficult to move. Fortunately it isn't impossible for me to reach it...just difficult.My experience with floor cleaning robots started with the Mint 4200. I wanted a sweeping robot to get under the beds and futon in the apartment. I really like the Mint and it does exactly what I want it to do--sweep dust.So I was really excited to try the Scooba 450 because i thought it would take my robotic floor cleaning to a new level and in a way, it has. First I want to say this is a very well made robot and it does a fine job in a small room on floors that are perfectly flat and even. In my kitchen, which has new tile, the cleaning is... 3/5 MJ23447 (USA) - See all my reviews, April 26, 2014

    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.
