Roomba Create- Remotely Controlled

The Roomba Create is a complete robot development system, developed by iRobot. The system allows one to program new robot behaviors without thinking much about mechanical assembly and low-level code. This is fitted with a number of sensors and data are available in a serial format for Bluetooth communication. When paired with a computer the serial lines are virtually connected to the computer as a normal serial port and data are available to the computer. For this project these data passed to a LabVIEW program and used for controller designs. The control commands are then pass back to the Roomba create via Bluetooth communication. A graphical user interface (GUI) has also been developed so that the GUI can be published as a web page for controlling the Roomba over the Internet. In addition to the control design, a wireless video camera is mounted on the system to view the Roomba’s travel path.
