Kilobots not responding to OHC
« on: February 27, 2018, 03:55:04 PM »
Hi,

I am actually working with Kilobots on Debian. I have followed the instructions here : https://www.kilobotics.com/documentation.
Some kilobots work perfectly, while others do not repond at all to the OHC (when I use the kiloGUI interface), even though I have correctly updated the firmware on these kilobots, and they are turned on (green light flashing).
Is there any explanation for this issue? What should I do?

Thanks.

Hi,

if the Robot didn't respond even after an firmware install means that the IR calibration has been erased (during update) or is not more correct.
in Both case, the only solution is to send back the robot to K-team for calibration.

Best regards

Hi,

If your robots do not show any response to your OHC or they look dead, you have to flash them.
Check this out:

Good luck!
