Roomba Discovery Sensors

Hello,

I'm using this with my Roomba. The Controls work fine, however the sensors are not correctly read (or read at all) from the Roomba Discovery. Any Disco users with different experiences?

What Roomba model # do you have? We have had some reports of older Roombas not getting their sensor values correctly. If we can get your model # we can acquire that specific version and test.

Naturally, upgrading to a more recent Roomba model does solve the problem too.

Ben or Steven
how do you get yours to work.mine works great with SCI tester and ROOMBA STATUS ,so the cable is good and ALL roomba functions work
i have it on usb port 2 and has the new roomba upgrade with OSMO hacker (firmware),lights go off when in safe,passive or full mode

You can't even drive it around? I can with mine. You have to turn it on, and set 400 series and 5700 baud rate.

Fred,

Please check the latest version of RR as Ben has mentioned that things are working better now (offline emails). The 4210 sends some text on power up that was confusing the module and causing the sensor readings to malfunction. Let us know if things have improved for you too.
