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.

    Warning: does not work with Model #536

    0 5/5 Diane - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) I ordered two 500 Series Virtual Wall Lighthouses through Amazon, and found they do not work with the new model #536. The Amazon ad states (in the Product Description) that the lighthouses work with models 535 and up. According to IRobot product support, this was true at one time, but not with the new 536 (and possibly other new models). The 536 will only work with Virtual Walls.FYI, I could not rate the lighthouse, so my rating is for the 536. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 11, 2010

    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.

    A Good Pool Cleaner That Costs Less to Run and Maintain

    Updated note after spending the life of the 2nd Smartpool NC71 robot:I purchased 2nd Smartpool NC71 robot after junking the 1st as commented in the previous notes. The 2nd went dead not long after its 2-year warranty expired with the following issue and comment.(1) The purchased 2nd unit was purchased in the end of August but found not working at all about 50 days after coming back from my Europe trip, the manufacture replaced with a brand-new one and it start its first service about 100 days later. I asked the manufacture to extend the warranty to cover the period that had not worked at all, but was refused. Now the unit just broke right after its original warranty period.(2) I give up on all Smartpool products from now on, and consider to switch to "Dolphin premier robotic pool cleaner" because of its 3-year warranty and the reliability based on editor and user reviews even though it costs about twice more.Updated note after 20 months... 1/5 Vincent Lin (Houston, TX USA) - See all my reviews, October 7, 2010
