Control an iRobot Create with Arduino

The iRobot create is a mobile robot platform that can be controlled by uploading various scripts to determine which actions it will take. As it has a simple DB25 interface socket and uses serial communication, Matt Gray and Golan Levin have documented a method to control the iRobot with an Arduino. This includes uploading and executing a command script to the iRobot.
