Any update on a black rug workaround?

I’ve tried a few different colors of tape to try working around this issue, but I really want to be able to do all of my rigs in my home.
Any progress on fixing it?

what type of black rug do you have…being of the scientific mind I might try to find some off the cuff solutions. could you post a pic of said rug?

Bam there are several threads of people complaining about this issue (with examples). Black/dark patterns keep kicking off the “cliff sensors” and driving the robot crazy.

yeah. I haven’t seen a picture of the type of run this is happening on ( can you point me in the right direction? I may have overlooked some. I have only found one example and it wasnt black. ), I was going to try and set up a few controlled variables and see if I can figure out a work around. the height of the rug, the length of shag, shade, etc :slight_smile: maybe something I can use to an advantage

there might be some common denominator. I have a few ideas in mind that might be enough to get it to play nice. it will be fun to play with it a bit

And someone has a video at

There’s another somewhere with a swirly pattern.

Pasted the image, hoping it worked. This is the rug that I have.
