The LabVIEW Hacker iRobot Create is a popular consumer robotics platform based on the Roomba autonomous vacuum cleaner. The robot is popular because of its sensors (four infrared "cliff" sensors, an infrared wall sensor, two bump sensors, three wheel-drop sensors) and its simple universal asynchronous receiver/transmitter (UART) serial interface. Combined with National Instruments hardware and/or software, the iRobot Create is often used as an educational robotics platform.
