An exploration with the C# RoombaSCI using VB.Net. This app's development enabled the creation of Roomba-term & helped refine the C# RoombaSCI. https://sourceforge.net/projects/roomba-term/ This project is defunct & will not work with iRobot Create.
Roomba create is a great device, but it might just be that this program doesn't work with the create because the create will require a different baud rate than some of the other roomba models. Otherwise - they both are fairly similar units. If anyone is looking for a good introductory writeup on communicating with the vacuum roomba as well as the create models - it might be helpful to check out robotappstore . com and look under the knowledgebase tab. Hope this helps!
