Re: iRobot Create/Roomba Interface Board

I assumed you were going to build a board that would replace the Roomba's electronics. Oh heavens no! In fact, this board would be little more than a breakout board for some 3.3v/5v buffers running between the Pi UART and the Roomba. But it would be a quick and easy way to get started without havin...

Re: iRobot Create/Roomba Interface Board

So I don't think you'll sell many, unless you also create a set of instructions for an accompanying robot that will work with it. (I would guess the roomba motor/gearbox/encoder assemblies are uncommon and pricey.) Can you elaborate on what you mean by this? My plan was to make an adapter board tha...

UPDATE:

Please only vote if you actually own a Roomba or a Create! I would like to know if this is something that Roomba owners would be interested in buying. Thanks!

iRobot Create/Roomba Interface Board

Hey guys, I'm considering creating an interface board that connects a Raspberry Pi to an iRobot Create or Roomba robot, and then mass-producing it and selling it, as well as including a free software library for it. I may also sell all-in-one kits that include a Pi, a Create, and the interface board...
