I had otten the GoPiGo to work. I connected it to WiFi, made it turn, go backwards, forwards and stop. I did this by connecting from my MacBook Pro and running sample programs.
Then I wrote my own program on the lines of
from gopigo import *
The robot did not do anything. Then the VNC Viewer reported that it was not responding. So I had to power off. This corrupted the SD card. So I started with the downloaded image and got the robot to boot up again. This time the keyboard stopped working. The mouse works intermittently and I cannot connect to WiFi using keyboard and mouse by entering the password.
When I run ssh firstname.lastname@example.org with my MacBook Pro connected to the Raspberry Pi using an ethernet cable, I get the message “ssh: Could not resolve hostname raspberrypi.local: nodename nor servname provided, or not known”.
I’m stuck now. Is there any diagnostic software I can run to see what’s going on?
