People working on stuffs

I'm working on this serial cable http://blog.makezine.com/archive/2008/02/how-to-make-a-roomba-seri.html --Eb4890 21:42, 4 December 2011 (UTC)


I've had no success getting the roomba to respond to anything over the serial port. I've tried:

  • FTDI cable
  • arduino serial outputs (with signals from the arduino and without)
  • uusb mb5 adaptor (usb->serial 5v device)

I've also tried both SCI and OI protocols with all of the above. Thats using Roombaconn, python roomba libraries and arduino roomba libraries. The best I can get out of it is a continuous reboot loop - tomw
