My iRobot got fried when it got wet from rain coming in the window..I HACKED IT using Particle, STM32 dev board and ThunderSoft.
When I discovered that my iRobot was damaged from rain I opened it up and cleaned the corrosion out of it and managed to repair the charging part of the board and then left it intact…. Going to the drawing board and designing a shield to mount to the top of the iRobot Body. The Particle is powered from the iRobot so power is not an issue.,. The main problem is designing a forward and reverse into the shield as the (negative and positive ) need to be reversed for the motors to go backwards and it is also how the machine will steer. The design schematics are attached.
