I do the same procedure in the guide to calibrate the motor of robots but when I command robot with ccw or cw button in the program, the robot does not show any movement!! what is the problem? It seems the Harvard U has provided a calibration board with kilobots but it was not included in our package; It is necessary to have the board?

no there isn't any calibration board for the motor. You just need the OHC to do it.
But as explain in the manual, you have to download the Kilobot_motor_cal.hex firmware inside the Robot and the OHC_motor_cal.hex inside the OHC.
Only after that you can start to calibrate the robot. If the robot do not respond to the OHC command, try to turn it off and on again (unplug the jumper at least 2-3s).

Best regards
