Yeah, it was source devel/setup.bash. Could've sworn that I did that, guess not. But I can now confirm that it works on 700 series and 800 series Roombas

Yeah, I was tired when I was trouble shooting, and caught that this morning. I was in the wrong directory when I cloned from Github. But I reinstalled it (build went fine), and roslaunch still isn't recognizing it as a launch-able file.

I am having trouble getting this to install. Latest rosdep is installed. Latest python-catkin-tools is installed. RosLaunch confirmed working

The first alarm bell is when I try to run catkin build and install space comes back as "missing":

ubuntu@tegra-ubuntu:~/create_ws$ catkin build

Workspace configuration appears valid.
[build] Runtime: 0.0 seconds
No packages were found in the source space '/home/ubuntu/create_ws/src'

Then when I try to run it, I get an error about "create_2.launch not being a launch file".

 ubuntu@tegra-ubuntu:~/create_ws$ roslaunch ca_driver create_2.launch
[create_2.launch] is neither a launch file in package [ca_driver] nor is [ca_driver] a launch file name
The traceback for the exception was written to the log file

And now catkin spaces don't like building properly.

I poked through my .bashrc and didn't see anything odd. Does your package use any code that is dependent on x86/AMD CPUs, or that wouldn't play nice on an ARM CPU?

I can't even seem to get this run. Its possible that its on my end - I am trying to run this on a Tegra TK1 - but I do not think so. Opening a new question here.

I will give it a test and let you know. Might take a few days though, changing jobs and the on-boarding process is kind of intense.

2015-11-18 02:22:13 -0500 asked a question Roomba 700 series

For the last couple of months, I have been playing with a Tegra TK1 and learning ROS. I have an old 700 series Roomba that I want to use with ROS. It has the DIN/serial connection, right under the handle, but I was wondering if anyone has tried the using 700 series Roombas with ROS before? Or if they know otherwise the the tools available for the 500 series will work for the 700?
