Step 6: Wiring
Instead of using the Create serial cable or RooStick (as in the tutorial), I simply ran it straight from the Cargo Bay Connector. For powering the AX-12 Servos, I simply repeated the process, only splicing a Dynamixel 3-pin cable (please reference the photo below). Remember to cover the solder joints with heat shrink to avoid any shorting. Once this is complete, the Kinect and AX-12 servos will be powered from the Create battery. I would like to eventually charge the netbook from the iRobot Create Home Base (like in this project ) or replace the netbook with something that can be run from the Create's battery (such as the Roboard).
