Samsung's Cliff Sensor
Samsung's Cliff Sensor
A Cliff Sensor is important to have on certain robotic systems to avoid excessive drops that otherwise might damage the robot. Roomba models come with a cliff sensor to help them avoid driving over stairwells or ledges.

A cliff sensor can be mechanical, optical, or even ultrasonic - however they all achomplish the same purpose. A mechanical cliff sensor is simply a contact that runs along the ground that when a large drop off is encountered - flips a switch or sensor that tells the controller that it has reached a drop off.

The roomba uses an optical cliff sensor - which shines an LED onto the ground at an angle that is picked up from a sensor. When the roomba comes across a large drop off, the reflected light from the LED is no longer detected into the receiver, and the roomba registers the drop off.

Ultrasonic sensors simply determine the distance to a surface, and when the distance changes rapidly, it registers a cliff. Check out more about ultrasonic sensors in the links below.

PLEO
PLEO is an Autonomous robotic life form, modeled on a young Camarasaurus dinosaur.

PLEO is designed to mimic life, which means PLEO thinks and acts independently, just like a real animal. In general, a Life Form looks, moves, and behaves in ways that trigger a "belief of life". Sepcifically, PLEO has organic body language, exhibits emotions, is aware of his/her surroundings and has recognizable behaviors. PLEO' sophisticated sensory system has devices that enable him to hear, to see, to sense touch, and to detect objects. It is the newest member of your family!

• Every PLEO LifeForm includes: Companion Guide, Training Leaf, Authenticity ID Card, One Li-Polymer Rechargeable Battery, Charging cradle, and Universal voltage power Adapter.
• Not intended for children under the age of 12.
• Product Dimensions: 15 x 4 x 8 inches - Weight: 8.8 pounds.
• Pleo's Li-Polymer battery provides longer play time than 2009 Pleo. Recharging a depleted battery takes 4 hours.
• US/Non-U.S. Version includes: 100-240VAC 50/60Hz universal adapter
