Neato Robotics XV-11 Tear-down

The latest in robotic vacuum cleaning is the XV-11 from Neato Robotics – and it features a scanning LIDAR laser range-finding module that is ripe for repurposing in other robots. Chris over at Sparkfun lovingly tore in to one and wrote up the results so far – the module has a simple serial port interface that will probably soon be decoded and understood.
