Details

The TurtleCore™ expansion board sits in the cargo bay of the original (Version 1) iRobot Create® Programmable Robot, drawing power over the DB25 connector to power an Overo® COM or Overo STORM series of COMs.   Using the COM on the TurtleCore means Linux tools are available, including ROS, for high level programming.  There are 3 USB ports and several male-header pins available with GPIO access, as well as standoffs and screws to support the TurtleCore in the Create cargo bay.
