Kilobot / Kilobots not responding to OHC
« Last post by Amaya on February 27, 2018, 03:55:04 PM »

I am actually working with Kilobots on Debian. I have followed the instructions here :
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?

Khepera IV / ssh connection- response too slow
« Last post by Firhanh on November 11, 2017, 02:31:16 AM »

I'm able to connect my PC to khepera IV via ssh connection, the problem is the connection response is too slow..
I've tried to ping khepera IV IP adress from my PC and the result is shown below

Firhan@Hz:~$ ping
PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
From icmp_seq=14 Destination Host Unreachable

The ping is too high

but when I tried to ping my PC from khepera IV the response is great

Have anyone face this problem before? any solution?
I need your advice,

I want to install ROS in Khepera IV to make it easier to communicate with my PC.
The problem is I don't know if ROS is compatible with Khepera IV or not.
Does anyone have experience in doing this? Is it possible to install ROS on Khepera IV?

Kilobot / Re: OHC Resetting
« Last post by kteam on June 01, 2017, 08:30:40 AM »
Have you tried to reflash the OHC using AVRstudio? Normally it solve the problem of corrupted Flash.

But, in your case, if the device manager did not find the AVRispII on the OHC, you won't be able to reflash it.

Try again with AVRstudio, if it doesn't solve the problem, please contact K-Team and return the OHC for repair.

Best regards

The drivers were installed and working, in fact I was able to flash the OHC successfully. Only after the failure to flash the Kilobot did it start to behave this way, and no changes were made to Windows. It was literally a few seconds between unplugging the OHC to plugging it in again.

I tried a new Win7 machine as per your instructions, however as the OHC is in some weird mode, so it is not possible to connect to it as per step 2.

As soon as I plug in the OHC, the lights appear as in my video. The 2 read lights are permanently on, and the green ones flashing. Device Manger is refreshing every 4 seconds. Usually when Device Manager refreshes it's because it detects a new device. In this case, as it refreshes every 4 seconds, it detects the OHC then loses it, detects it, loses it etc. so I presume the OHC is restarting.

What else can I try?

Kilobot / OHC Resetting
« Last post by Dasto on May 29, 2017, 12:56:48 PM »

I managed to flash my OHC with the latest controller.hex file, as per the instructions [1]. Then I proceeded to flash the first Kilobot with the latest bootloader.hex. The Kilobot flashed green and vibrated then seemed to get stuck. After quite some time I disconnected the Kilobot and it now just sits there blinking green rapidly.

Meanwhile, the OHC is rebooting and I am unable to flash it (see video) [2]. If you can't see the video, what is happening is that one of the green LED's on the OHC flashes every four seconds, and the OHC is re-detected in Device Manager.

Any help would be appreciated.

sorry, we have never experiment such a problem. Have you tried to change the type of encription (WEP or WPA)?
Have you tried with another acces point?

Best regards
