First Startup

Start the robot

Congratulations that you have made it this far. Now comes the fun part — starting it all up!

It’s time to power the robot up by hitting the switch at the back of the robot.

Once turned on, the RGB LED on your mainboard should go through some colors starting with RED and ending with RED - ORANGE blinking.

This shows that the mower is in emergency mode and that ROS is not connected to the mainboard.

This is expected because our Raspberry Pi has no OpenMower software yet, just the basic operating system.

If everything seems healthy, turn off the mower and proceed to the next section: Docking Station Assembly. Otherwise, refer to Troubleshooting.
