A Roomba Christmas

A Roomba Christmas

Well, it's here. The moment you've all waited for. Thanks to the holiday season, I have finally been able to follow up on my Roomba work!

Using the ROI 500 protocol from iRobot, I decided it would be a nice gesture to have Roomba do a little Christmas performance for everyone.

I created a serial tether to connect the Roomba directly to my PC and controlled it in real time with a LabVIEW 8.5 program.

I programmed Roomba to play notes as he dances back and forth and to blink its LEDs. All of the music is coming from Roomba’s speaker, not an external source.

Hope this helps brighten up your holiday!
