From , the RooStick will allow any computer with a USB port to serially communicate with a Roomba. This allows any program that can issue serial commands to a COM port to control the Roomba. No level translation required! Drivers are available for Windows, Mac OS, and Linux.
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 .
This board comes fully assembled with a mini-B USB connector and a MiniDIN-7 female connector. A standard 7-pin M/M Mini-DIN cable will connect from this board to any Roomba. An 8-pin Mini-DIN cable will also work, but you will need a 'straight-through' wired cable (a Mac serial/printer cable work).
