[TechWeek] IBM Roomba-Based Robot Measures Data Centre Heat

IBM is plotting the temperature patterns in data centres to improve their energy efficiency, using robots based on an iRobot Roomba base – and it is not the only company using this approach.

IBM has built a bunch of robots using iRobot Create, a customisable version of iRobot’s Roomba robot vacuum cleaner, which can move autonomously round data centres, plotting the temperature and humidity. The resulting maps can spot areas where cold air is being wasted, or hot spots are developing, so energy can be saved. A strikingly similar project is underway at EMC in India.

IBM at it again i see:rolleyes:
Smart move, especially in server areas all that waster cold air is literally money down the drain.
