Communicating with the IRobot Create RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm trying to communicate with the Irobot create but am unable to read it's sensor outputs. Does anyone know a C++ function which may be of use to read and return the value of the create's sensor values?

  • As this is an RDS forum, most of the code is written in C#.

    There is an RDS service for the iRobot Create. However, it is  not as simple as just calling a particular function to read the sensors. You will need to write a service that partners with the iRobot Create service.

    Perhaps you should look at the definition of the protocol used by the iRobot Create and write your own code to talk to it over a serial port.
