Fall prevention

ROSbot looks pretty great, but I’m curious about how people are doing fall prevention. From what I can see in the docs, there are no sensors on the bottom. So how can the robot detect that it’s about to roll off an edge? Are people adding their own sensors for this? If so, is there a “standard” emerging in the community? Thanks.

Hi chaddkn,

As you already checked, ROSbot doesn’t have any sensors on the bottom. I didn’t see any ready to use solution, but you can create your own one with some type of distance sensor using ports from rear panel.

Can I ask for what type of application you need edge detection?
