I am familiar with Raspberry Pi, Arduino, or other microcomputers; can I use them with the Create 2?

Yes! The Create 2 works out of the box with the included USB to serial cable for Raspberry Pi and also can be controlled using an Arduino's TTL-level serial port. We have seen lots of cool Create 2 projects that take advantage of an added Raspberry Pi, Arduino, or other microcomputer, particularly to add onboard computing power or connectivity.
