Can a new iRobot Roomba e6 (WiFi enabled, scheduling robot) be hacked like the iRobot Create, while allowing it to do a bit of vacuuming during non programming time?

  • $\begingroup$ Welcome to Robotics TexasGEEK, but I'm afraid that it is not clear what you are asking. We prefer practical, answerable questions based on actual problems that you face, so it's a good idea to include details of what you want to achieve, what you tried, what you saw & what you expected to see. Please take a look at How to Ask & tour for more information on how stack exchange works and work through the Robotics question checklist to edit your question to make it clearer. $\endgroup$ – Chuck Jul 8 at 15:56

    $\begingroup$ I think robotics.stackexchange.com/questions/18092/… may answer your question (only 5xx - 8xx series are compatible with the Create 2 Open Interface).

  • $\begingroup$ Great answer @Steve. Why not make it a real answer, and not a comment? $\endgroup$ – Ben Jul 9 at 14:57
  • $\begingroup$ I don't think an "on hold" question can be answered. I took a pass at editing the question so that it would clarify the initial intent. $\endgroup$ – Steve Jul 9 at 18:09

    $\begingroup$ @Steve - You're correct; questions on hold can't be answered. I've opened the question back up, so please feel free to post your answer :) $\endgroup$ – Chuck Jul 10 at 12:10

I think turning a roomba 980 into a create may answer your question; at this time, only 5xx - 8xx series are compatible with the Create 2 Open Interface.
