The Neato XV-11 has been hacked! Hooray!
Now, every hobbyist has access to a (relatively) cheap and fairly accurate LiDAR. This kind of technology usually sells for several thousands of dollar and now is available for the price of a robotic vacuum cleaner (and it includes the vacuum cleaner in the price 😉 )
Hash79 successfully hacked the Neato XV-11 by adapting the code produce by Xevel and chenglung and was able to get useful readouts from the LiDAR. Kudos to you guys, we hope you enjoy your bounty and the free vacuum.
For those of you wanting to get your hands on the code and hack the XV-11, simply visit the gitHub project page.
