iRobot Roomba: A platform for invention

iRobot Roomba is more than just a great product. It’s also a powerful—and affordable—robot. Now developers and roboticists can use Roomba as a platform to implement their ideas, without having to build a robot from scratch. Using the iRobot Roomba Open Interface, a developer can remotely monitor Roomba’s sensors and control its motors.

Robot enthusiasts have already taken advantage of Roomba’s versatility and built a variety of applications that allow the robot to do more than just clean floors. Here are a few examples:

Mind Control for iRobot Roomba, created by Element Direct, lets you take command of your iRobot Roomba Vacuuming Robot.

Roomba DevTools, by RoboDynamics, is a set of development tools that allows users to control the Roomba platform right from their computers via Bluetooth, USB, or serial interfaces.
Open Interface Innovations

Developers and roboticists have been bringing their own creations to life with the iRobot Roomba Open Interface. From a musical instrument to a real-life video game, Roomba has been used in a variety of experiments and we can’t wait to see what you come up with next. Send your Roomba hacking adventures to info-at-irobot.com and we’ll post them on our site.
