iRobot Create2 / Roomba Platform via RobotMoose

CS 480: Robotics & 3D Printing Lecture, Dr. Lawlor

UAF has been building robot communication infrastructure called RobotMoose:

The iRobot Create 2 or Roomba 500-600 series uses a DIN-7 cable for serial communication.  We've soldered jumpers to the relevant pins:

DIN Yellow: Roomba ground -> black jumper, Arduino GND

DIN Pink(ish): Roomba RX -> red jumper, Arduino TX

DIN Black (thick, no lettering): Roomba TX -> blue jumper, Arduino RX

DIN Green : Roomba Baud Rate Change -> yellow jumper, Arduino pin 2

You just add a "create2" device on the web front end, hit Configure, and you should be able to drive the Roomba.
