A Thermal Fuse is a fusible link that is placed into a circuit that will “blow” when a certain temperature is reached. Thermal fuses are common in lithium-ion battery packs where there is a higher potential for fire. To reduce the potential for fire, a thermal fuse will cut battery power. Once the thermal fuse blows, the fuse’s conducting path is physically destroyed and must be replaced.
In contrast, a thermal cut off switch (TCO) will reset itself when the temperature returns into its operable range. TCO’s do not require one to replace it every time the thermal cut off switch is triggered. Fuses are generally considered safer because they have less moving parts, and cannot reset themselves once triggered. For more information about thermal fuses, check out the links below:

have since been released that allow the Roombas to better negotiate obstacles
and optimize cleaning.

iRobot Create is a hobbyist robot manufactured by iRobot that is based on the Roomba platform and was introduced in 2007. However, iRobot Create is explicitly designed for robotics development, rather than simply hacking the
Roomba. In place of the vacuum hardware of the Roomba, the Create includes a cargo bay which houses a 25 pin port that can be used for digital and analog
input and output. The Create also possesses a serial port through which sensor
data can be read and motor commands can be issued using the iRobot Roomba Open Interface protocol.
