    Hi

    I assembled a Duckiebot and went through the tutorials on the “getting started” page. Everything worked fine until the step “Making your Duckiebot move” but now I’m stuck.
    The gui opens but nothing happens when buttons are pressed. Is there any way to check what’s causing this problem? I even checked the motor connections on the bot. Everything seems to be okay. Could this be a hardware problem?

    Some more information that could be helpful:
    1. I use Ubuntu 16 as OS
    2. Pinging the duckiebot via “duckiebot.local” is successful
    3. The necessary Docker containers mentioned in the documentation are running (demo_joystick and interface)
    4. The Duckiebot seems to receive my Key presses. When I press i (the toggle instagram thingy) there are new entries in the log of the demo_joystick container: (anti instagram message)
    5. I even tried the way that’s described in the DT18 documentation, but the Duckiebot just doesn’t want to move.
    6. The camera streaming and calibration worked

    Just tried with a gamepad… The pressed buttons are recognized. The Duckiebot does not move though. 🙁

    Solved by replacing the HAT.

    Hi dreherd,

    I’m having the same problem. Do you use a Duckiebot hut or Adafruit HAT. And how did you identify the defective HAT?

    Hi!
    I am studying at the international university of Greece and I have undertaken the Duckietown Classroom Kit as a diploma thesis.
    Initially, by my own mistake, I chose the commands version of Duckietown shell to daffy with which I initialized the MicroSD card of Duckiebot.
    The Duckiebot was normally connected to the network, the Leds were on, the camera was working normally and I could move it manually. (Both with Duckietown shell and with dashboard).
    When I changed the commands version of Duckietown Shell to master19 and initialized the other cards while the camera is working normally, the duckiebot connected to network, the bridge is connected but the leds are off and I can not move it manually (The duckiebot-interface is running). I tried the other cards to the same duckiebot which worked normally with the first MicroSD Card…

    Hi SakisPet,

    I’ve had problems with duckiebots. Since the leds are off, it could be problem with the motor hat. I would suggest flashing the microcontroller: https://github.com/duckietown/Software/tree/master19/hardware/software

    I have done the initialization process of the MicroController Toolchain but the robot is still not moving!
    The same robot that moves manually with the card that was initialized with daffy version of the duckietown shell does NOT move with another card that was initialized with master19 version that is suitable for my country…

    When initializing your SD card with command $ dts init_sd_card --hostname hostname, try naming that hostname other than duckiebot. I had trouble with that hostname causeing my duckiebot not moving earlier.
