I need the specifications for the Create 2. I need it for research purposes. So I think I'm going to need a high computational computer on board.

Please suggest some nice configuration.

  • $\begingroup$ Welcome to robotics Saim, but I'm afraid that shopping questions really aren't a good fit for a stack exchange site. We prefer practical, answerable questions based on actual problems that you face. Take a look at How to Ask and tour for more information on how stack exchange works, and the Robotics question checklist for details of how to write a good question. $\endgroup$

I'm not sure which specifications you're asking about, but the manual is here.

As far as "nice configuration," it really depends on what you're up to. A Raspberry Pi 2 can run ROS reasonably well, and is relatively inexpensive. As a bonus, there's a write-up on how to hook up a Pi here. You could also use a netbook with the supplied Create 2 to USB cable.
