Hello. I am using the Pololu 3pi robot for a final project at my school, but I cannot get the robot to connect to my computer properly so that I can program it. No matter what I do, this error message occurs:
avrdude: stk500v2_command(): command failed
avrdude: stk500v2_command(): unknown status 0xc9
avrdude: stk500v2_program_enable(): cannot get connection status
avrdude: initialization failed, rc=-1
Double check connections and try again, or use -F to override
avrdude done. Thank you.
make: *** [program] Error 1
I have exhausted online forums for a solution, but to no avail.
I have tried to program the robot using both AtmelStudio and the command prompt on Windows 10.
I suspect it is a problem with the AVR itself because when I plug it into my USB port on my laptop, the red LED, 1st yellow LED, and 2nd yellow LED all flash sequentially.
Any help here would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
