I can ssh into the OLPC and drive the Roomba around with a simple command line interface built on PyRobot. I also have a bash script running on the OLPC that grabs a snapshot from the webcam every 5 seconds and uploads it to my web server. The entire thing is held together with duct tape. Now I just need one laptop per Roomba. From Fido
I've been working on a re-write of iRobot's openinterface.py that is, hopefully, cleaner and more compatible with older Roombas in addition to the Create. I call it PyRobot . And now, it has a home. Currently, PyRobot is not nearly as feature complete as openinterface.py. But I expect that will change as I start playing more with my robot army maids.
