Next Meetup

Project Build: Roomba Rovers
Interested in having a robot roaming your house? Maybe tracking your pets? What would you program it to do? Individually we will be designing, hacking and programming our own Roomba vacuum. Together we will be helping each other along the way. In our first session (on 11/9) we focused on sharing what each other's goals were and began our group research, design and planning for hardware & software components. This session (11/15) we will focus on connecting to a robot vacuum and testing whether we can send simple movement commands via a serial cable interface. This will be a great test for any older, donated Roombas to see if things are working. Things to bring for those that have: Roomba, Serial to USB cable, USB extension cable, Laptop (with putty and / or python installed). We are scheduling each session as a group based on next steps and who is in attendance. Are you ready to Roomba?
