This is a wiki for the LibreRVAC project.

The goal of this project is to create a free/libre/open-source firmware for robotic vacuum cleaners.

The list of supported devices can be found on Supported Devices page. Not supported devices are also listed there.

Hi. This is great. Keep going. I would absolutely want one with an open firmware. In the future this may become a security need if a model has net access. But for now, it would be great to know the "brain" could be upgraded on how to cover the floor (and maybe to do other things). If you are up to it, could someone write to the wiki something about the development timeline/lifecycle, needs, plans, whys etc.

Hello! Thank you for your interest. Unfortunately, we are currently not working on the project. There's a chance that we will resume the work, but right now please look for other efforts. For example, see this awesome video.

Hey :)

Any info in how to flash this firmware? I was gifted a SR8730 recently and found out about this project.

Sebastian, it's not easy :) Unfortunately, LibreRVAC is still unfinished, but if you want to have a go at it yourself there's a lot of info about your robot on this page: SR8730.
