PythonRoombots

This is a little library that can act as a programmatic client for connecting to and driving a roombot.

To connect to the roombot simulator you would clone this repository and run a command like:

python roombots.py --roomba-host roombots.riesd.com --channel YOUR_UNIQUE_CHANNEL

To connect to a physical roombot you can use the default channel and just point to the IP address of the roombot:

python roombots.py --roomba-host 192.168.0.0.2

You will see a lot of output about the messages received and sent by this client so you can decide how to customize it.

Getting Started

Make sure you install the dependencies found in the requirements.txt file found in the root of this project.

pip install -r requirements.txt

Customizing

To customize, open up roombots.py and begin coding the Roomba around the maze.
