  • Robot acts like it emergency stopped but no error messages are shown on either phone

    Hello,

    We have just recently encountered an issue where our robot suddenly dies and becomes unresponsive to any buttons on the remote, like an emergency stop. However, the phones don't show any errors and act like they are still connected. All of the motor and servo controllers still have power. We have never had this problem before until yesterday. We are using MIT AppInventor, but I don't think it has anything to do with that, it's a connection issue of some sort I would guess.

    Any suggestions or thoughts would be helpful.

    Thanks,
    Madeleine

    We sometimes see this issue, the most common cause is loose USB connectors. There are a ton of connector tie-downs and mounts on Thingiverse, our team is actually adding them so we don't have the issues you described.

    Best
