The Open Lidar Project - Hack the Neato XV-11 Lidar

Hey robot builders,

I was inspired by the Open Kinect hacking bounty that was put on by Adafruit. So, I got to thinking that we could do the same thing for the Neato Robotics XV-11’s lidar sensor. It’d make a great addition to the sensing arsenal. There’s now a $800 bounty for getting the sensor hacked. You can find more details here: … 200-bounty


This sensor has been successfully hacked. More information on Gallamine’s blog:
