OpenROV + iRobot Roomba / Create = RCV (remote controlled vehicle)


#1

Hello All,
Here is my project, I was thinking of taking the OpenROV BeagleBone and mounting onto a iRobot Roomba. Why a Roomba? Why not, I have a couple. The Roomba has an “open interface” that allows you to take control of all Roomba functions via a serial port. (iRobot encourages hacking) What I think needs to be done is some way to change to code to “map” the PWM commands to the iRobot open interface commands.

Thanks for Sharing this project.
It’s really a valuable information that can help me to built my own robotic vacuum cleaner.
