With the Create 2 iRobot if it is already moving backwards (with its bump sensors in the front of it) how would I code it to sense that it is hitting something on its back side with only using the create's sensors?

Since there are no sensors on the back, its probably best to only back up a short distance and then make a 180 degree turn.

The only other way I can think of is to monitor the left and right motor current (packet 54 & 55) to see if its above the normal level assuming its backed into something and bogging down
