Abstract: The development of a software program can often be a long and difficult task. I was recently part of a development team for the creation of an application to control the iRobot Create, which I call Zoomba. This application remote controls the speed, direction, and movement of the iRobot Create via an Android phone. This talk will discuss the design, implementation, coding, and testing of our application as well as give an overview of the software development process in general. I will also give a brief demonstration of how the application works.
