I am talking about the sensors salvaged from Neato Robotics robots. If you want a snippet that works with the more recent 360 Laser Distance Sensor LDS-01, it is not here. The LIDAR has two connectors, one for the motor and one for the communication (serial port). Here is a photo of one of my specimen connected to a PC via a usb-to-serial ftdi. A driver is needed for the USB connection to the robot, containing the standard unique device identifiers for XV and Botvac, linking driver to device, setting mapping within Windows. While the firmware updating website has been discontinued by Neato Robotics, the links for the drivers for Windows are still active Dec.

The Neato Robtics recently released a firmware update for their vacuums. This update brings some enhancements to their already great device and owners should install it when they have the opportunity.
There is a problem with this update though, it does not support Windows 8! While Win8 is the newest OS from Microsoft, it has been around long enough now where this type of issue should be a thing of the past. Since it is not, those of us who happen to have both a Neato Vacuum and Windows 8 PCs are unable to update the vacuum using the method detailed by Neato.
There is, however, a workaround which requires no technical skill. Simply follow the steps below and you’ll be able to get your machine updated just like everyone else on the legacy operating systems!
