Hello everyone,

This is an announcement for create_autonomy
<http://wiki.ros.org/create_autonomy>, a ROS driver for the iRobot Create 1
and Create 2 (Roomba 400-800 series).
Based on iRobot's Open Interface Spec
<https://www.adafruit.com/datasheets/create_2_Open_Interface_Spec.pdf>, it
provides access to a variety of sensor information including wheel
odometry, bumpers, light sensors, and button presses. There is also
interfaces for controlling the various LEDs and invoking the built-in
docking behaviour.

Documentation and source code can be found on GitHub:

Many additional features are planned for the near future, such as a sound
interface and access to the brush/vacuum motors.

Hope you enjoy!
