3pi Robot not Working


Hi How are you?

mi 3pi robot has just developed a problems, i load the example sketches using arduino IDE, they load ok with no errors, i turn on the robot, press the button, the sensors calibrate, press the button again it plays the charge music and displays Go!, but the robot does not move… what can be causing this?




Hello, EM.

I am sorry you are having trouble running one of the 3pi examples. Has that example ever worked on your 3pi before? If so, what changed between then and now? What version of the Arduino IDE are you using?

You mentioned powering on the 3pi after programming it; does that mean that it was not powered during programming? Which AVR programmer are you using?
