Roomba Wi-Fi Remote is Robotics, TCP/IP sockets, Ajax, JSON, XML, C, Python, Java… is development.
Roomba Wi-Fi Remote in Transparent Mode
Transparent or Gateway mode, RooWifi, the Wi-Fi Remote for Roomba allows programmers to develop applications for smartphones, tablets, PCs and MAC to communicate with iRobot Roomba without need of any additional cable or Bluetooth or Zigbee. Just need Wi-Fi access.
Are you an iRobot Roomba expert developer?
Have you programmed the robot with cable? With RooWifi Wi-Fi Remote for Roomba things will be much easier and you will need your home or office Wi-Fi infrastructure. Advantage yourself using the iRobot Roomba mobility.
If your application was made in a standard programming language, adapt to the impact of TCP / IP sockets is minimal because the TCP / IP sockets are so widespread as they were once the serial ports and changing code can be done in minutes.
More advantages and less configuration
Transparent or Gateway mode, Roomba Wi-Fi Remote device manage all the necessary communication to talk with iRobot Roomba. Programmers just need to send commands that affect to the robots telemetry and forget about unnecessary tasks to work with the robot.
Forget about the physical layer and just sent SCI commands defined from iRobot Roomba. Totally Wireless!
When you finish programming
Just close the socket! Leave start working iRobot Roomba and control it with your embedded RooWifi Wi-Fi Adapter for Roomba website through any compatible platform or just leave it in standby.

From the connection moment until the time that closing off the TCP / IP socket, you will be connected to the robot.
Easy: All you need to do is start the application and connect using TCP / IP socket to port 9001!
