While not specific to the iCreate, I stumbled across this one day…




It’s a bit dated (1996) but contains a decent survey of the various sensor types and pros and cons.


It is an understatement to say that the localization problem is non-trivial.

Subject: [Gumstix-users] help with IRobot-create encoder and gumstix.



Hi All,

       I want to use IRobot-create with gumstix for a localization task. For this i will be using the wheel encoder present on IRobot-create robot base to measure the turning angle.
Before i start using it i would like to know if anybody has previous experience with create and please let me know about its encoder precision. Also if anybody can throw some light on what sensors can be used for localization in an indoor environment it would be of great help.
