Firmware Development for Roombots


The goal of this project was to implement and test an initial version of the distributed firmware for the Roombots modular robots. It included

  • the implementation and testing of a simple ASCII communication protocol as well as
  • the testing of the communication speed of the used hardware.

It was shown that a maximum communication speed of up to 10Mbps can be reached successfully for the internal communication over the choosen RS485 communication interface. Details of the firmware implementation, protocol design and testing can be found in the report below.
