I was wondering what models of the Roomba that are supported by the example ARC Application? Does the ARC Application support the I-Robot Create?
I downloaded the Roomba Example in EZ-Builder, I noticed it didn't include a mobile interface. I started to create a mobile interface for the Roomba example and have a couple of questions:
--I put forward, reverse, left and right buttons on the mobile page. I looked at the scripts for the buttons and they are the standard scripts used for revolution robots. Do these scripts need to be modified as it looks like the EZ-Bv4 communicates with the Roomba via RS232? Will these buttons without changing the scripts control the Roomba in the Mobile App?
--Also there are buttons in the EX-Builder PC Screens for Roomba that control the motor speed, seek dock, clean, disable sensors, etc. Can these same controls be used in the mobile interface as well. I clicked on the Roomba Movement Panel setup gear and the only thing noticed was a baud rate setup? There were no scripts for the buttons in the windows interface. I am assuming that when you click the buttons that a serial command is sent to Roomba to cause the actions to take place. How is this accomplished for the Mobile Interface?
--I'm thinking seriously on using a I-Robot Roomba or I-Robot Create as a base for a security type robot as some have suggested in replies to other posts of mine. Sounds like a very good idea with it being able to dock with a recharging port. Would like to be able to control them via a mobile interface. Using EZ-Bits and the universal adapter plate I could create various creations to mount on the Roomba or I-Robot Create.
--I have a Foscam F19831P IP Camera and am very interested in using it with the ARC for PC and Mobile Version of EZ-Builder. Seems like it would be a large software project and I am not the good with programming. Would like to have the Foscam video stream show up in ARC Mobile and be able to control its pan/tilt functions in mobile app as well as the Roomba Movement Panel to control the Robot Functions?
--Can you select multiple screens in the ARC Mobile Interface? Seems that you can but not sure how this is done. Haven't seen any examples of this yet?
Thanks much for your time....Rick Bonari
