Please correct me, but it seems that right now (CVS) the only way to
do collision detection is with a bumper (I guess I could use a bunch
of laser rangefinders...), and the only way to get a bumper is to use
a robot model (such as a Pioneer2?) that has bumpers built in. Is
that right? I can't, say, use a clodbuster with bumpers? Sounds like
the same goes for sonar. Just tell me I'm wrong and I'll look again!
I'm guessing this based on the fact that there don't appear to be any
documented drivers that support the "bumper" interface, besides p2os.
If anyone has any experience balancing a Pioneer atop a Clodbuster,
let me know ;)
