I would love to buy one of these stand-a-lone units but the electronics and programming overhead involved seems beyond my current capabilities to make it work with Ez-Script. I don't know C# and don't have the bandwidth to learn and buy everything required to use it. But if you have a solution of how to integrate it with EZ-Script I'll buy it today!
Rich has been helping me for about the last week just to send and receive commands to an intact Neato XV-11.
If there is a working solution other than what has been discussed previously it would be great to share it with the community rather than keep it all behind closed doors - that is what makes this community pretty special after all
He also gave me this link to share on hooking up Neato via USB http://www.ros.org/wiki/xv_11_laser_driver/Tutorials/Connecting%20the%20XV-11%20Laser%20to%20USB
