Vacuum Robot Build Shark V63 Maybe With Tomy 2000

Hello everyone. First off i will say im technically inclined background, building pcs, custom cars, and i mod everything, make custom fiberglassn bla bla bla. Im wanting to make a effective and attractive robot that can navigate by itself and vacuum up. I already ran accross a shark v63 stick vac thats already setup for 10 volts. Ill probably run it a bit higher , maybe 12 or so. I got it new for 44 bucks which felt like a great deal considering the other options from eureka , hoover and dyson. And ideas or thoughts are appreciated. I was thinking about putting this vac into the back of a omnibot 2000 , or just making a custom frame. When the vac isnt on i would like the bot to roam about with little noise as possible. I ofcourse want to use the ez board you have if thats practical. I even have a nvidia ion mini atx board i could install onboard that runs on 12v. Ill post drawings and pics of vac. Thanks.


Upgrade to ARC Pro

Harnessing the power of ARC Pro, your robot can be more than just a simple automated machine.

Custom Fiberglass? That is awesome! I tried it once - I had resin stuck to everything. In fact, I think there is still some on my front sidewalk:P

If you do make a robot like this, it will most surely be an ideal personal robot. Being able to vacuum and clean up, that's awesome. Any idea of what it would look like?

Yea fiberglass can be messy when your learning but after a while you manage to avoid making a permenant mess somewhere. This is sorta one idea i saw someone do. Just scetching around i drew up a super simple bot with vacuum ontop lol. Yea all i had was crayons at my desk.

anyone have comments on tracks vs wheels? I basically was thinking either treads for grip or basically roller blade wheels to keep things quiet when not actually vacuuming. I have hardwood downstairs , carpet upstairs so it need to do either or.
