iRobot's Create ( http://store.irobot.com/shop/index.jsp?categoryId=3311368
)  is a popular, highly affordable (130 USD) , mobile robotics platform
based on the popular Roomba vacuum cleaner robot.  It is well suited for
education, research and outreach.  The Create can be connected to a base
station PC via wired or wireless serial connection; or via a Bluetooth
adapter.
 
MTIC provides a set of intuitive, high-level Matlab functions that allow you
to control the actuators and sensors from a base station running the Matlab
programming environment.  The toolbox also has limited compatibility with
older Roomba platforms.
