How to check your robot when it doesn't move as indicated in the code
Check your robot
- See here to check if there is a power supply by the battery to the Core. Please note that the robot will not work if the power is only supplied via USB.
- If you are creating a robot with the instructions in the Learning Course or Robot Recipes, check if you are connecting the cables into the indicated ports.
Check the code
- Check if all coding blocks under "Start" are properly snapped together. When you snap the coding blocks, be sure to bring the blocks close enough until you see a yellow line at where you are snapping to.
- Check your code again if it has all the motion blocks and values necessary to instruct your robot.
- When creating a robot in the Learning Course, make sure to check your code in the "Check the right code" or "Finished Code" sections.
- If your code includes "function -" blocks, check that all the functions have been used by snapping the "call function -" block.
- If variables are used in the code, check that all the variables have been used by snapping blocks such as "set variable -- to --" etc.
