iRobot® Create® 3 Release H.1.0

[Click here to download release H.1.0]


When using Fast-DDS, startup times are about 30s longer than in our Galactic release. We are working on a fix.

This release is running ROS 2 Humble with the following interface library versions:

Release Overview

This release has feature parity with G.4.3, except that ROS 21 has been upgraded to Humble.


As with the last release, this one provides the robot's sensors and controls via topics, actions, and services; for more, see ROS 2 API.

Between Galactic and Humble, the docking API (messages, actions, and topics) have slightly changed as follows:

  • the DockServo action is now Dock to match the Undock action (example here)
  • the /dock topic (and Dock message) is now /dock_status (and DockStatus message) to avoid confusion with the action (example here)

iRobot® Education Bluetooth protocol mode

iRobot® Education Bluetooth2 protocol mode is supported; for best results, use Cyclone DDS.
