I purchased my 11 year old son an Emoro Pro kit for his birthday. He was rather excited about it for several weeks and then it went into the closet. Recently he pulled it out to use it again, but "emoroServo.write() doesn't seem to be working" (as he said). Even the Emoro examples didn't work.

The only clue seems to be this error
Bootloader file specified but missing: /home/awesome/.arduino15/packages/emoro/hardware/avr/3.2.2/bootloader/EMoRo_stk500v2\stk500boot_v2.1_mega2560.hex
Which appears before any other log output, including the build and compile messages. It successfully compiles and serial.println works. What is going on?

  • There is a path given in the diagnostic message. Please check that this path exists, and look into the final (deepest) directory for the named hex file. – the busybee Jan 14 at 9:46
  • Got rid of the error by changing some filenames, but it still doesn't drive. – nerdguy Jan 14 at 14:04

Never mind, it turns out that Emoro robots don't run on USB power.
