Scooba 450 WiFi Com port Hack

Postby vic7767 » December 4th, 2014, 6:22 pm

Finally found a way to gain access to the Scooba 450 USB Micro port that then allows you to monitor Built in Test reports and also monitor battery charging reports. The key to this process is a small LI-ion powered stand alone WiFi unit with a TCP/IP port that connects via a Telnet TCP port. I used Tera Term and entered the Air-Console IP port number and TCP port to establish a serial com port session and monitor the 450 Scooba.



Here is the BiTs report from the 450. Most of the tests are similar to earlier Scooba models but there are also some new tests particular to only the 450.

Re: Scooba 450 WiFi Com port Hack

Very nice Ed. I was wondering if you could plug in a USB cable from a PC with the proper FTDI (for example) driver and get the same info. It sounds like the wifi unit has its own USB driver?

That's exactly what I've been trying to do with a TTL/USB Serial cable with the newest FTDI chip and driver from www.ftdichip.com. The driver is downloaded from the website but the cable is obtained from AlliedElectronics. Needless to say but I never got the right combo to wake the port up until I found this Air Console WiFi board.

Strange thing is that although it works just fine on the 450 Scooba, I can't get any info connected to the Neato XV or Botvac.

Hi ,
I have a problem with a part of the test,
what is the meaning of heading-sasis-detect? I can't get it pass , is it the front wheel drop sensor test?

Thank you
Andrea

It is the front wheel rotation detect.
