Browswer Roombot

A starter kit for driving a roombot.

Driving The Simulator

There is an online simulator you can use to test your code at Once you have a simulation open it will tell you which channel you should connect to. Now clone this repository to your computer and edit the app.js file so the channel matches the suggestion from the simulator.

Now run node app.js and verify you are seeing the correct console logs in your terminal.

You can start editing the the javascript to change what it should do when it gets sensor updates.

Driving a Real Roombot

Real roombots always use roomba as the channel name so you can edit your index.html file and set channel = "roomba";. You will need to know the IP address of the roombot. You can check the recent bots page online. Edit your app.js file and set roombotIP = '<IP-of-the-roombot>';. Now when you run the application you should be connected to the real roombot.

Good luck on your driving adventures! 🎉 👍
