Kilobots keep blinking all the time
« on: March 26, 2013, 01:38:26 AM »
I met a problem that the kilobots keep flashing in yellow and I can't load program into them or do anything effect their behavior.

After I run the program in the good kilobots(which not blinking all the time), I click the 'sleep' button. However when I click the 'wake up' and wait for 1-2 mins, the kilobots still in a mode as 'sleep'. Then I take out and plug in the power jumper, suddenly good kilobots begin flashing and have no reaction with the OHC.

I tried the KilobotSkeleton.hex and the program I wrote on good kilobots, both works.

Is it wrong to take out the power jumper and plug back during doing experiment?

P.S
The OHC is running well. However, IT can not send programs to "FLASHING KILOBOTS", any buttoms in the controller have no effects on "flashing kilobots".

Please give me some suggestion! Currently, I can't do any experiment.!
Thanks.

Hello,
did you try to reprogram the bootloader (see Kilobots user's manual, chapter 4.2.4)?

- Is it wrong to take out the power jumper and plug back during doing experiment?
During experiment, no; during reprogramming yes.

Best regards,
