Creator: Mario Ferrari, Giulio Ferrari, Ralph Hempel | Technology & Engineering - 2002-01-05

Though these robots may be simple, they have their merits in applying some of the concepts discussed in Part I and in introducing some new ideas. For example, the Floor Sweeper covers room navigation, suggesting approaches that refer to ...

About this book
Lego robots! Mindstorms are sweeping the world and fans need to learn how to programme them Lego Mindstorms are a new generation of Lego Robots that can be manipulated using microcomputers, light and touch sensors, an infrared transmitter and CD-ROMs. Since Lego launched Lego Mindstorms in late 1998 sales have skyrocketed - with no sign of slowing down. Mindstorms have captured the imagination of adults and children alike, creating a subculture of Mindstorm enthusiasts around the world. The kits are now a staple part of engineering and computer science classes at many high profile Universities. Building Robots with Lego Mindstorms provides readers with a fundamental understanding of the geometry, electronics, engineering, and programming required to build your own robots. Mario and Giulio Ferrari are world-renowned experts in the field of Lego Mindstorms robotics, and in this book they share their unrivaled knowledge and expertise of robotics as well as provide a series of chapters detailing how to design and build the most exotic robots. Mario and Giulio also give detailed explanations of how to integrate Lego Mindstorms kits with other Lego programmable bricks such asScout and Cybermaster, as well as with non-robotic Lego Technics models.

    This is the most amazing thing ever…

    A couple of years ago I bought my sister the first generation of the Mint Automatic Hard Floor Cleaner for about $250.00. Several weeks ago I ran across the O’Cedar O’Duster at Wal-Mart for about $40.00 and made an impulse purchase. I was so impressed that I got my mom the O’Duster for Christmas. My review will not only comment on my experience with the O’Cedar product but also compare the O’Duster to the Mint.Both of these products are hard floor sweepers (note I said “sweeper”. There is no sucking action on either of them.). They use a disposable cloth product to sweep wood, tile, vinyl, etc. They will not work on carpets/rugs; nor, are they designed to wet-clean the floor. These do not take the place of mopping.First, a description of the O’Cedar O’Duster…There is a round plastic center housing that is about eight inches in diameter and a little over two inches tall. It is surrounded... 5/5 M. Nance - See all my reviews, December 30, 2013

    Great tool for those who are not expecting this to replace a human.

    Customer Video Review Length:: 0:31 MinsI vacuum regularly but because I have pets, I need to Swiffer every couple of days or else a layer of fur builds up on my hardwood floors. I decided to give this a try and it works well for me. The long cycle lasted 2.5 hours when I tested it. It's not a Roomba, so don't expect a vacuum cleaner. It's not the Mint, so don't expect anything advanced or smart from it. It's simply a moving Swiffer-type cleaner that grabs small items like dust and pet/human hair. Don't expect it to pick up anything bigger and your expectations will be realistic. This does not replace a vacuum cleaner or actual sweeping by a thinking and seeing person, but it's good to leave on to do its stuff in between cleanings to get some pet hair off the floor without effort. It will get stuck in some areas like elevated edges, rugs, wires, and tight corners, so it probably won't be that effective left on when leaving the home. A great tool for those who are not expecting this to turn this... 4/5 BrooklynNY (NY) - See all my reviews This review is from: O-Duster Robotic Floor Cleaner (Health and Beauty), June 28, 2014

    Helps to keep up with the dust on hardwood flooring

    0 4/5 Russ - Largo, Fl - See all my reviews This review is from: O-Duster Robotic Floor Cleaner (Health and Beauty) Carpets can help to contain dust. My new hardwood floors do not. I am constantly coughing at night from dust in my bedroom because the hard flooring allows dust and hair to float around. This inexpense unit really helps.Be certain to give your room (floor) a thorough dusting and cleaning along with all of the furniture. Now, you are ready to use this unit. Let it do it's thing every other day and you will really notice a reduction in dust and hair.Easy to use. rechargeable. I would recommend you try it.Note: Ideally, floor should be clear of cords, books and junk. Have it start in the middle of the room if possible. Close your door or it will leave and work on the tile outside your bedroom!! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 27, 2013

    A reconstruction of the Zoomba

    I liked that little red robo vac. I've had too of those zoombas and two Roombas.Anyway, to qualify what I said about Zoomba (and this P3)...no matter what anybody says--this robot is not for carpets of any depth--they are strictly for hard, smooth, slick, surfaces/ hardwood, linolium, congolium (all those mispelled oliums).......and that's why I got this.I already know what it will and won't do. It won't do carpets.--but--It 'is' a dustbuster on wheels and will vacuum non carpeted floors just fine.Unlike everybody else, I take that dust cloth and dip it in water--spray a little lysol on it--stick it back to bottom of the robot and let it 'lightly' dampmop and lightly sanitize my floors.All in all, I remember those nicad batteries dying after about six months..I'd suggest tenergy type C cells--they last three to five years (cost more to).That's why I'm here to day...looking for replacement battery... 5/5 Oldtechnohobbiest "Mr. Nobody" (Tennessee) - See all my reviews, October 15, 2010

    Good value

    This little guy works hard. The first few times I ran him, I was a little disappointed because the filter seemed to be full often (after approximately 15 min) and it didn't look like it was picking up very much. The bin only had a small amount of particles and very little hair. It also appeared very inefficient (circling the same small corner area for 15-20 min without moving away). However, after the first couple of tries, it runs longer (about 45 min as long as he doesn't get stuck) and definitely picks up more dust, dirt and hair. My only guess is that I have thinned the filter while trying to clean it, and that allows more airflow so it doesn't get clogged as quickly. Now, he will run almost until the battery is out of charge and the filter will be full of dust and hair when I empty it and plug him back in.For reference, I use it daily in an area that is all hardwood flooring with one area rug and a few small rugs by doorways and the kitchen sink.

    Would love it if it ran longer on the charge.

    This vacuum is awesome! If I charge it through the night and run it in the am, I don't need to empty out the small bin that collects dirt, hair(even min which is 2 ft. long!), it even picked up some wet spinach off the floor(small pieces, but unexpected, especially from the reviews I've read.)! It picks up more than my big vacuum can get to. It is rather large, same size of the base of a normal vacuum, maybe bigger in some cases. Still, it fits under cabinets, dishwasher and half way under my tv stand which is bending, so I can't blame the machine. It seems to clean very random, but does get everywhere! It only runs for about an hour(which is short since it runs over the same areas numerous times bouncing around. I usually block off one or 2 rooms and run it for 15-20 minutes before switching to other rooms. It seems to ensure it cleans the entire house, save for bathrooms before the batteries need recharging. It has many functions and runs random, circling, does around edges of... 4/5 Jennifer M.
