    Updated and Major Changes.

    I got tired of my Roomba bumping into things so I added a Arduino and a color sensor to follow blue painter's masking tape. Now it stays on the straight and narrow.
    Details and source code available here: http://operationsimprovement.net/RoombaControl/Arduino_Version.html

    Updated 11/25/09 - Changed the mounting of the color sensor array and made it more fault tolerant due to bluetooth connection failures
