Connect the USB cable to the Robot and upload the new code (remember to select the ARDUINO LEONARDO as BOARD, and the correct COM PORT in the ARDUINO IDE), after uploading properly the code, click on the SERIAL MONITOR ("magnifying glass" icon, upper right on the Arduino IDE window) and see what the robot sends to the computer. If the IMU is working, it should be sending the values of the angle continuosly.
Connect the B-robot to the jjrobots Control APP ( I do not have the link here, but it is easy to find in Google Play). Then, start the robot and see if the TILT line (upper side of the B.robot control layout) moves when you tilt the robot. That means that the IMU is working and the problem is related with the motors :-\

I hope this helps!

Thanks.. Short on time this week to debug, but I will follow your advice and let you know the outcome. I appreciate this greatly


I have my plugs on the board reversed from what you have. The wires from the right motor, looking at the plug side, goes to motor 1 and the red wire is facing away from you. You have the blue wire facing away from you. If the wires are reversed or in the wrong motor slot it will not stand up. Angry

My robot doesn't always stand up on the first try. The motors will make a noise also. Try a few times.
