SparkFun RooTooth - Bluetooth Wireless Roomba Connection

A cable-less solution developed for controlling your Roomba. The SparkFun RooTooth v2 communicates with any Bluetooth® enabled device using the Serial Port Profile (SPP). You can now tell the Roomba when to wake up, when to clean, and when to shut off. You can even remotely drive your Roomba from your computer or from the WiTilt!

This product requires that the SCI (serial command interface) has been installed on your Roomba. SCI has been installed on all Roombas manufactured after October 24th, 2005. Please verify that your Roomba is compatible by checking here.

The new RooTooths are based on the Roving Network bluetooth module. The command set has changed from the original user guide written by Roomba Dev Tools. The new datasheet is below. The Rootooths are configured to 57600bps to work at the Roomba’s default communication rate.

Core Skill: Programming

If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.

3 Programming

Skill Level: Competent - The toolchain for programming is a bit more complex and will examples may not be explicitly provided for you. You will be required to have a fundamental knowledge of programming and be required to provide your own code. You may need to modify existing libraries or code to work with your specific hardware. Sensor and hardware interfaces will be SPI or I2C.
