The increasing adoption of robots that do dull, dirty and dangerous tasks has sparked a new class of developers, creating a variety of innovative robot applications. iRobot Corp.'s robots and iRobot AWARETM Robot Intelligence Systems have emerged as the platforms of choice for this activity. iRobot has also released the iRobot Roomba(R) Open Interface to encourage developers to create this new generation of applications.

The iRobot Roomba Open Interface is a serial protocol that allows developers and roboticists to use the Roomba Vacuuming Robot as a platform to implement their ideas, without having to build a robot from scratch. Using the Open Interface, a developer can remotely monitor the robot’s sensors and control its motors.

In addition, the iRobot PackBot is also gaining popularity for its modular architecture, which allows developers to integrate various payload capabilities onto the robot to help keep first responders and troops out of harm's way.
