Rosy our beloved Neato XV-11 robotic vacuum is sick and has a battery error message that says «Please Press Okay To Restart. Battery Issue (0002) (0008 (0009) (0005) (0006) . In this video you can learn how to repair this problem yourself with a simple fix.
For those who like to know how thing work, we also did a complete detailed tear down of the entire machine and explain how all the sensors, motors and electronics work together in unison to navigate this complicated vacuum cleaner that is a truly technological wonder.
Using a specially modified camera you will get a first hand visual look at how the on-board infrared laser sensors operate and aid in the navigation of the unit.
We have created a separate supplemental video showing how we modified a cheap digital camera to operate in the infrared spectrum by removing the IR blocking filter that can be watched here…
