Programming the mePed

Postby mikegre » Sat Oct 14, 2017 10:39 pm

I have connected the mePed up to my computer where I am running the Arduino web IDE. When I attempt to upload a new sketch I'm getting the following error:

Code: Select all

Flashing with command:/Users/michael/.arduino-create/arduino/avrdude/6.3.0-arduino9/bin/avrdude -C/Users/michael/.arduino-create/arduino/avrdude/6.3.0-arduino9/etc/avrdude.conf -patmega32u4 -cavr109 -P/dev/cu.wchusbserial14420 -b57600 -D -Uflash:w:/var/folders/p0/5t1z69ln2g18m1zchmpsfsym0000gn/T/arduino-create-agent073869932/sketch_oct14a.hex:i

Double check connections and try again, or use -F to override

avrdude done. Thank you.
What do I need to do to get this to work?

Thanks,

Mike

Hi Mike,

I'm sorry for your troubles! To be honest, I haven't tried out the web interface. Would you mind downloading the full IDE onto your computer and try programming the Arduino on the mePed that way? Please also be sure to select the Arduino Nano controller, select the correct COM Port, as well as have the correct CH340 Serial Drivers installed for your computer. These can be found on www.mePed.io.

Please let us know if you need further assistance.

Thanks,
Scott Pierce

I bought a kit at the Make Faire. After some confusion I finished the model. It has never worked. It only hums and twitches on startup. I tried to upload the program on the Nano but I get error messages. Is there a different place to get the files. Both the sketch on the forum and the one on the website do not work for me. I have copied them into the IDE and tried to upload them. Am very frustrated.
