Arduino Lidar Controller Neato, Xiaomi vacuums

Postby glnc222 » April 10th, 2017, 6:48 pm

Since the microcontroller code to control for the XV11 LDS by neato was written, it is now almost certain that the xiaomi LDS in many parts is identical in design to the neato XV11 and Kobold Vr100 LDS. Also, the data stream emitted to be identically encoded, seems otherwise these could be read out by the microcontroller. So a very good chance by soldering wires to be able to operate a XV11 LDS in the xiaomi robot.
