I have started to project for building diy robot vacuum cleaner. I will be shared all details in this topic.
Main design repllicated from Roomba 5xx-6xx series. It will be improved step by step.
Part-1 Idea - Theory
Roomba or Neato is very expensive in Turkey related to custım taxes etc. So i have decided to build my own. While surfing on the net i have find basic obstacle avoiding robots are made with arduino. So if i add a vacuum motor it could clean my home!!
Arduino mega and modules will be sued for electronic control.
I will use ultrasonic sensors for obstacle avoiding and wall following.
Delta vacuum is used for vacuum motor.
I have found used neato wheel assembly with motors on ebay
for brushing mechanism i will be use roomba chm for now. But in future i will develop my own design
For battery 4x 3400mah protected Panasonic 18650 will be used with battery management module.
I think total cost will be about under 100 $ with using used parts
