NEW PRODUCT – Mini-DIN Connector Cable for iRobot Create 2 – 7 Pins – 6 feet
With this handy
7 Pin Mini-DIN Connector you can now jack into the hackport on your iRobot and control it with an Arduino or some other favorite microcontroller that has a 5V TTL UART! You can also power your project off of the internal Create 2’s battery. Note that the battery voltage can be as high as ~21V so a buck converter such as this one could be good for getting the unregulated Vpwr from 20V down to a more reasonable 5V.
More information on the cable and what each pin is used for in the Create 2 Open Interface Specification.
The iRobot Create 2 is a time tested durable mobile robot platform built from remanufactured Roomba robots so instead of spending hours, or days, or weeks trying to build a functional robot and figuring out your power supplies and motors, just hack the iRobot!
Check out the tutorials and guides over at iRobot.
Each order comes with a single cable,
