The dashboard is primarily used to get all the useful sensor data from the Create 2. In addition it can also be used to send some of the commands to the Roomba. Particularly it can change between the different Create 2 modes (full, safe, passive). There are a couple of gauges that provide data about the current, volts and charge of the battery. The batt. level gauges also provides the battery level as a percentage but shows it as a graph over time.
